Western can provide a variety of on-campus lodging options during the summer months when not in the main year academic session. There are sixteen residence halls and one apartment complex available with three housing styles – apartments, suites and traditional rooms.

Each of our buildings includes access to lounges, vending machines, free wireless internet and free laundry facilities. Linen service, including bedding and towels, is also available upon request.

We invite you to take a virtual tour of Western’s residence halls or read through a quick overview of our residence hall options.

In addition to our on-campus accommodations, Conference Services also coordinates hotel bookings and other lodging needs. For more information on local accommodations, please view additional lodging options in Bellingham.
