Welcome to the Office of Residence Life at Wilkes University!
The Office of Residence Life’s goal is to foster a residential environment supportive of individual student growth and development through programming, training, and the room selection process. The collaboration between students in our residence halls and dedicated University staff helps to create a community in which the students can experience feelings of identity, security, and intellectual stimulation.
Our mission is to encourage student success by creating a quality living environment that provides opportunities for socializing and learning outside the classroom.
The Wilkes University campus is located in the historic district of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. We offer a variety of housing options for our residential student population, ranging from traditional halls to apartments to mansions. All rooms are furnished with one bed (extra long mattress),
dresser, desk, chair and wardrobe (or closet space) per student. In addition to the furniture, each room has basic cable and telephone service. Each student has a "Port for Every Pillow" - an Ethernet/Internet connection per student.
The staff working for Wilkes University's Office of Residence Life is committed to helping our residential students resolve any concerns that may arise during their time in living on-campus. Our live-in hall staff includes Resident Directors and Resident Assistants; serving as tremendous resources and who have been trained to assist our students in a wide variety of situations. The Director and Assistant Director of Residence Life also live on campus and can respond quickly and appropriately to any situations that may arise. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance.
