About Residence Life and Housing

Baldwin Wallace University Residence Life and Housing supports students who live on-campus, those who commute to BW and those who live off campus. Our goal is to assist students with all aspects of their lives at BW through a variety of services. This includes providing an environment that is supportive of academic work both inside and outside of the classroom and fostering personal growth and development. Experienced staff members get students involved in the wide range of educational, cultural, recreational and social activities offered in BW's residence halls and on campus.
