At Widener you will find a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive residential community with housing options that suit a variety of interests, living styles, and needs.
Who Lives on Campus?
On-campus living engages students in co-curricular activities, cultivates a sense of belonging, helps foster independence, and supports the development of skills essential to academic success. For that reason, Widener University requires that traditional, full-time undergraduate students live on campus during their first two years of study, unless they are living at their permanent address with their parents or guardians.
