Time is running out! Secure housing now.

On-campus living: Half of Arcadia Flats sold out in the first day, but we do have two-bedroom units still available. Designed for upper-level and graduate students, Arcadia Flats is ideal for students making the transition to independent apartment-style living.

Residents live near the core of campus in safety-conscious housing that supports community engagement and student success. WMU students wanting to live in Arcadia Flats can sign up now for Fall 2020 while select units are still available.
