Whether you're coming from the other side of the mountain or the other side of the world, beginning your college journey is a big step. W&L strives to create a community academically and sociallywhere students can feel at home. From faculty members to student support staff, everyone at W&L wants to see our students succeed.


The only trouble with living on campus at W&L is that you may never want to leave. Starting with your first year on campus, where you'll live in one of two newly renovated residence halls, you will become part of a community.


We are committed to preparing food from scratch, in small batches as close to service as possible. We take pride in serving meals that are fresh and hand-crafted from the highest quality ingredients.

“The Honor System at W&L is the real thing. It pervades the entire campus. There is a sense that each individual on this campus matters, and so we treat each other with respect. The Honor System is at the very heart of the community.”
