Transfer Student Communities

Wherever you are transferring from, fantastic opportunities await you at Western Michigan University. One of those opportunities is campus housing tailored to the incoming transfer student experience. Shilling Transfer Hall focuses on easing your transition to WMU with activities to connect you with other students and the campus.

Shilling Hall

All residents in Shilling Hall are incoming transfer students. Eligibility for those living in the community is 14 transfer credits and at least 20 years old or 21 transfer credits. Each resident lives in a single room that is provided at a discounted rate, which equals a $3,115 savings for the year. The discounted single room is unique to Shilling and only offered for your first year at WMU. Shilling is a suite-style building, meaning two rooms are connected by a full bathroom. Staff members in the hall come from a variety of backgrounds, and they strive to create a positive environment with a strong sense of community.

For students in sciences, technology, engineering or math, you can opt for Shilling STEM. It is a floor within the transfer community where everyone is in a STEM major.

Transfer students can live anywhere on campus, but those who live in the Shilling transfer community love it. They have all the conveniences of living on campus plus the benefit of living with others who can relate to the transfer student experience. We are proud of the Shilling transfer community, and we hope you will consider calling it home next year.
