Welcome to Residence Life

On behalf of the Residence Life Staff it is my pleasure to welcome you to the residential community at William Paterson University. We encourage you to become actively involved in your residential community and campus life through the many programs and activities that are offered during the course of the academic year.

Many studies have shown that living in an on campus residential community contributes to the college experience both academically and personally. As individuals living in a residence hall, there is much to share and learn about ourselves and one another.

Please use this website for information regarding residence hall policies and general information.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 973-720-2714.

We look forward to seeing you during the academic year!
