"The Engineering House allows you to meet other engineering students and develop friends with similar passions. Plus, the Student Success Center is an amazing resource!
No one but an engineer understands what it takes to be an engineering student."
— Sam, Junior, AuTrain, MI, Aerospace Engineering


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.

Thinking Honors? Engineering majors in the Lee Honors College can opt for the Engineering-Honors section of the Engineering House. That means your neighbors will also be in the Honors College.
