Living Together

Living together

First-year students at UWC-USA live with second-year students in the residential house and develop a keen appreciation for the traditions and practices that make our community strong.


With faculty living on campus as well, new students arrive on campus in the fall with a powerful support network already in place. We place a high priority on building relationships–it’s fundamental to the UWC mission–and the students increase their ability to forge relationships with people who come from very different places, speak different languages, and have different values. Driven by a commitment to the social and emotional wellness of our students, the residential life program provides students the chance to live the nine values that form the bedrock of our community.

“By embracing our mission to make education a force to unite people, nations, and cultures for peace and a sustainable future, our students also commit to a set of values that guide their actions and interactions, on campus and beyond. They do so in partnership with a staff dedicated to the same ideals, who serve as models and mentors.”
