Finding a Place to Live

The Dayton area is a great place to call home

Whether you’re on your own or have a family, plan to rent or buy, want a city or suburban setting, have something specific in mind or just need a decent place for a good price, you can find it here. After all, you may be spending a lot of time on campus or at clinical sites while you’re here, but when you do head home, it helps to live somewhere just right for your needs.

The Dayton area ranks as the second most affordable among metropolitan statistical areas with a population of 500,000 or more, according to the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Opportunity Index. In 2011, more than 90 percent of the homes in the Dayton area were affordable to families making the median income of $63,300, according to the NAHB.

Visit the secure Housing pages

In the secure Housing area of this web site, admitted students will be able to complete a Roommate Questionnaire and download responses to the questionnaire from other students. There also is a Housing Message Board for current and incoming students to exchange information about potential roommates, places for rent or sale and other housing matters.

This area is accessible only to current WSU medical students and members of the incoming Class of 2019. To access the following pages, you will need to use your WSU user name and password. If you don't remember them, contact Debbie McNeely in the Office of Student Affairs and Admissions.
