Life on Campus
We realize that much of your time here will be spent outside the classroom, so we offer you a diverse community with many great activities from which you may choose. Boredom isn’t an option!
WVU students also enjoy life as residents of Morgantown, a vibrant college town that has won national acclaim as one of the nation’s most livable small cities. With a year-round schedule of things to do, including concerts and performances from nationally touring acts, film festivals in the grandly restored historic Met Theater, and world-class outdoor activities, this is a great place to live and learn.
On campus, living in one of our 11 residence halls will help you meet other new students and get involved. Our more than 15 dining facilities give you lots of tasty choices that are convenient for your busy schedule.
Some of your best friends and most rewarding experiences will come from joining one of our 400 student organizations, which include everything from academic, service, and religious groups to Greek fraternities and sororities and political organizations. You can also choose from intramurals and club sports, or visit the Student Recreation Center to clear your mind and stay in shape.
WVU is home to one of the nation’s most storied athletic programs. The successes of WVU’s teams contribute to a sense of pride on campus, in the community, and across the state. The word “Mountaineers” evokes a sense of history, tradition, and championships. As a WVU student, you can join the Mountaineer Maniacs to experience the thrill of cheering with thousands of your fellow students. Whether it’s the excitement of more than 60,000 fans united in their love for WVU football or a basketball legacy that includes a trip to the Final Four in 2010, there’s nothing like being a Mountaineer.
No matter what your interests you can find your niche at WVU and become a proud Mountaineer!
