Dynamic communities in a fun atmosphere

All Undergraduate Accelerator students are guaranteed conveniently located housing as part of their program. You will be assigned housing upon acceptance to the program at an off-campus housing location called WISH Woodley Park Apartments. Students who live in an approved program residence during their first year are statistically proven to be more likely to complete their degree on time. Undergraduate Accelerator students are required to live in an approved program residence, as it not only helps them succeed in the classroom, but also fully integrates them into the campus community and social network.
