Residence Life

The College of Wooster is a residential community. Students live on campus all four years of their Wooster experience.

Housing Options

Douglass Hall

A variety of housing options are available to students, including traditional residence halls, themed-based housing, as well as more idendependent living opportunities in our campus program houses.

Housing selection for returning students takes place starting in January of spring semester. New students will receive information regarding housing after they deposit. Learn more information about our first year centers.   

Have a Question? Need Assistance?

Every student in the Residence Halls, Westminster Cottage, and Miller Manor will have a Resident Assistant (RA) that they can go to with questions about resources on campus, help with work orders, as well as housing concerns. There is also information about staff on call available in each hall or house in the event of an emergency or if the student is unable to get a hold of their RA. There is also professional staff available in the Campus Life Office from 8:30am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.   

Checking Out?

Students must checkout of their space when completing a room change or moving out of the space. There are multiple options for students to checkout: schedule an appointment with their Resident Assistant 24 hours in advance to do the checkout in person; use the Express Checkout forms located in Security and outside the Office of Residence Life, or checkout through your housing self-service page.
