Housing and Residence Life

Department of Housing and Residence Life Mission Statement


The Mission of Housing and Residence Life at WSSU is to provide a Residential Experience that fosters a holistic-learning atmosphere  which challenges a community of diverse scholars while encouraging collaboration, accountability, responsibility, service, and leadership preparing our students to engage in the global community. 

Instrumental to the success of our mission is to provide:

  • Safe, Secure, and Comfortable living conditions which are conducive to the pursuit of academic excellence
  • Programs that address cultural, physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and intellectual development of our students
  • Technology that enhances intellectual pursuits and student success
  • An Awareness of the benefits and needs associated with community living 


Winston-Salem State University residence halls operate on a "living and learning" concept. Here, students are challenged to improve interpersonal relationship skills. Students are also challenged to live peacefully and to interact with others from different cultural, regional, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our students enjoy a healthy range of adult freedom while carrying out their responsibilities at Winston-Salem State University.
