The Whitehouse Experience

Whitehouse hall is a suite-style residence hall that has plenty of room to connect and focus on academics. There are several large lounges throughout Whitehouse that make building a community and hanging out with friends easy and accessible. While the smaller lounges scattered throughout the building offer opportunity to really hone in on your academic studies. Students often take to our front living room on the first floor to play board games and watch movies with their friends. We also have a newly renovated lounge on the ground floor that is right next to the community kitchen and laundry room which allows students the opportunity to gather over home-cooked food or just study and hang out while waiting on their laundry to finish.

The hall houses up to 207 sophomore through senior-level students and is located on the corner of Ditzler Way and Porter Streets.

If interested in applying to live in Whitehouse Hall during Room Selection Process, students can apply in groups of four (full-suite) or two (half-suite). Gender Inclusive Housing options are available in Whitehouse.
