The Future of Housing
Climbing to Greater Heights
The Future of WKU Housing & Residence Life
WKU Housing & Residence Life is optimizing the on-campus living experience for current and future students through a 10-year plan to renovate and construct residence halls on WKU's Bowling Green campus.
After an in-depth review of current housing options and extensive focus groups, interviews, and surveys with current WKU students, HRL identified opportunities to improve and enhance the learning-centered community of on-campus living for WKU students.
The improvements made will further promote campus living involvement, intensify each student's connection to WKU, and provide a premier living-learning experience.
