Frequently Asked Question
Are freshmen required to live on campus?
Winthrop's residence hall experience is dedicated to the development of each resident student and is an essential part of the university's total education experience. Therefore, all freshman and second-year students are required to live on campus unless they are living with parents or guardians within 50 miles of Winthrop University.
Advantages to living on campus include proximity to classes, the library, dining locations, and campus events; opportunities to meet more people and to make new friends; and support system of trained residence hall assistants and other Winthrop staff.
Winthrop offers a variety of residence halls, including traditional halls, suite-style halls, and two apartment buildings. The apartments and one residence hall, Thomson, are coed. All residence halls are within a five minute walk of academic buildings and dining facilities.
