The WKU First Year Village is located on the south end of campus, where focused first-year programming takes place and is home to most Living Learning Communities. These halls utilize space in a way that enables deep faculty and peer engagement around important ideas that connect directly to student success and learning. 

 

 Outdoor Area

A large, park-like green space is located in the middle of the First Year Village, to be completed by fall 2021. More features will continue to be added through time. 

 

 Dining

The First Year Village includes the Pit Stop Convenience Store, the Den by Denny's, and two new dining locations, Java City and The Spread, opening inside Regents Hall in fall 2021. Einstein's Bros. is also located nearby in Jody Richards Hall.

The Preston Health and Activities Center and WKU Health Services are located nearby.
