All single first and second-year students with fewer than 59 credit hours (including transfer credits) are required to live in University housing. The following exceptions apply with verification:

  • Students who will be residing with parent(s) within the commuting distance of 50 miles of WVU Tech.
  • Married students
  • Students with children
  • Students 21 years of age or older

Nationwide, students that live on campus connect better to their college and make higher GPAs than students that commute from home or live off campus. In addition to an improved GPA, students that choose to live on campus also have more diverse social circles. Make the most of your time in college and live in one of our wonderful residence halls.
