Welcome to the Residence Life page at Washington Adventist University. Living in the residence hall is your life beyond the classroom.  Not just a place to sleep but a community to study, eat, have fun and build lifelong friendships.  Experience:

  • Exciting times
  • Fun activities
  • Meeting new friends
  • Enjoying pizza nights
  • Spiritual growth
  • Personal growth
  • And much, much more. 

Get involved and take advantage of the opportunities afforded to you.

Our residence hall rooms are outfitted for two occupants with a bed, desk and chair, sink, and closet. The room provides hook up for cable TV and WiFi access. Every hall has common areas for meetings, group study, and recreation, as well as a communal kitchen, chapel, and laundry facilities. Morrison Hall provides on campus housing for male students and Halcyon Hall provides on campus housing for female students.
