Take the Space You Need Looking for Privacy?

We offer a limited number of double rooms, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Our premium single residential living spaces come with two sets of furniture that you can arrange however you like.

If you're a first-year student, you'll have the option to request a premium single on your housing application in THD. Please note that due to limited space, a request for a premium single does not guarantee that you'll be assigned to one. Have questions? Reach out to us at

Be at the Center of Golden Bear Country

Living at the center of WNE's campus allows you to get to where you need to be, quickly and conveniently—whether it's your 9:00 a.m. class, a dining hall meal with friends, or back to your residence hall for a quick break. It's also a great way to get familiar with important locations on campus as a first-year or transfer student. Plus, studies show that living on campus can help you to feel more engaged in student life, leading to success in the classroom.

To help you adjust to college life and establish a solid routine, Western New England University requires all first-year and sophomore students to live on campus in university housing. You'll live, work, and socialize comfortably in exceptional residence halls, fully equipped with furniture, laundry equipment, and recreational spaces. Exceptions to this policy will be made for those living at home with a parent or legal guardian within a 50-mile radius of the University (determined by GPS). Learn more about the residency requirement, and other circumstances that may qualify for an exception.
