Campus Housing

Graduate students have a lot to balance - work, family and school being just a few.

That’s why Wilkes offers convenient programs that can be completed on a part- or full-time basis, with classes held on campus, online or at locations throughout Pennsylvania. And if you're enrolled in one of our low-residency programs, housing information will be sent to you in advance of your visit.

Otherwise, graduate housing is typically not needed. Should you need assistance, please contact Graduate Studies at (800) WILKES-U ext. 4235. We can walk you through housing options to best suit your needs.
