Residence Halls Undergraduate students at WIU are required to live on campus for 4 semesters or at least 60 credit hours.

Residence Halls are semi-private, and have shared bathroom facilities. Residence Hall rooms do not have a kitchen, but residents have access to a shared kitchen in their building, so there is limited ability to cook your own food. If you live in a residence hall, you are required to have a meal plan. This means you will pay to eat at the cafeteria. 

If you have special dietary requirements or need special food, the residence hall dining centers will try to get it for you.

Residence Halls are divided by gender (males only live with males, and females only with females) and age (younger students live in certain halls, older students live in other halls).

There are several residence halls to choose from. Click on the name of each Hall to see pictures and more information:

Freshman (1st Year Student) Halls: Tanner HallBayliss & Henninger Hall,

Sophomore, Junior, Senior & Graduate Halls: Thompson HallGrote HallCorbin & Olson Hall, and Lincoln & Washington Hall.

Residence Hall residents must purchase a meal plan that will allow them to eat at many different facilities across campus. Click here for more information on meal plans.
