Learn to live independently and as part of a vibrant, diverse community


When you join the nearly 1,500 active undergraduates living on campus at William Paterson University, you’ll be at the center of it all, sharing your college experience with fellow students from every background and perspective. You’ll build friendships that could last a lifetime, while learning a lot about yourself and your interests, not only academically but also personally and socially. 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.

This website provides important information about living on campus and our residence hall policies. 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!
