Living On Campus

Widener is home.

After a clear set of goals and a plan for achieving them, the biggest factors in your academic success include healthy food, a decent night's sleep, and a sense of belonging, and Widener can provide all three. From co-ed residence halls to themed housing including living learning communities and sorority houses, Widener's smoke-free, wireless campus has housing options to suit all tastes.

On-Campus Housing

All undergraduates are guaranteed housing in one of Widener's:

  • 11 standard residence halls;
  • four apartment buildings;
  • our 300-person suite complex; or
  • fraternity and sorority houses

You might like living here so much that you never move off-campus.

We also include housing accommodations for students with support animals, please see the information on the Residence Life Public Office Page in CampusCruiser for more details.

Living Learning Communities

Want to be part of a dynamic community of students committed to leadership and community service? Widener's Living Learning Communities (LLC) is for you. LLC teams live in some of the choicest on-campus "real estate" and collaborate on hands-on projects that connect Widener with the local community.

Juniors and seniors with a 2.5 GPA and a favorable judicial record are eligible for this unique opportunity.

Residence Life Programs

There's lots of fun and learning on-campus, no matter where you live. Throughout the academic year our Resident Assistants coordinate over 100 programs — everything from movie nights to safe sex workshops to diversity awareness. They're also happy to listen or lend a friendly hand when you need it.


Choose from our affordable meal plans and dining halls, including our newly renovated Pride Café and the new McMorland Food Court scheduled to open in fall 2012. Our Dining Services staff is happy to accommodate students with special dietary needs.
