Engineering House

Students in WMU College of Engineering and Applied Sciences majors can opt to live in the Engineering House. Located in Eldridge Hall, the community offers a great opportunity for those majoring in the diverse fields of engineering and applied sciences to live and study together. The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences is actively involved with the community.

For students who are a part of the Lee Honors College, there is a Engineering–Honors option. Students who chose the honors option will have a roommate and suitemates who are also in the Honors College. 

Community highlights

  • Residents major in a mixture of traditional engineering fields, computer science, paper science and more.
  • Residents are often in the same courses fall semester.
  • A Student Success Center offering STEP tutoring in math, chemistry, physics and engineering is open 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. five days a week is right in the building.
  • Small computer lab with engineering-specific software available in the hall for Engineering House residents only.
  • Past activities include a grill out with engineering faculty, building spaghetti bridges, life-sized cardboard canoes (tested in the pond!), how to get an internship, video games and using a trebuchet.
  • Opportunities to network with engineering faculty and alumni.
  • Two Learning Community Assistants who are in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

If you have a non-engineering roommate request, you and your roommate may still request Eldridge Hall. If space is limited, though, you will be assigned a floor in Stinson Hall with other engineer/non-engineer roommates. You will still have the experience of living with engineers and being close to tutoring and other activities, but your roommate will not be the only non-engineer on the floor.
