Living in Community
One of the most unique features of Warren Wilson is its strong campus community. Warren Wilson is a residential campus where 90% of students live on campus, which creates a vibrant residential experience.
Residence Life Staff
Your residence hall experience is guided and overseen by three levels of staff support, with Residence Assistants (RAs) living in your hall and working directly with you to create an environment that supports learning, openness, tolerance, respect, and individual responsibility. RA’s are backed-up by Residence Directors and Area Coordinators that help handle administrative issues, facilities, mediation, and emergency response.
Can I Commute?
Warren Wilson is deliberately a residential community. If possible, we want you to live on campus throughout your enrollment, which allows you to be fully engaged in the life of the college. First year students will be approved to live off-campus only when one of the following is true:
- Living with parents
- Living with spouse or domestic partner
- Living with dependent child
- Financially independent as determined by the IRS
Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) Shuttle
Warren Wilson provides shuttle service to students going to or coming from the airport around major breaks and at the beginning and end of the school year. This non-refundable shuttle service is available for a fee to currently enrolled students who register. Announcements for shuttle registration will be sent to students a month in advance.
