The transition to college is not only a new experience for the student going away, but can often times be challenging for the entire family.  Sending a student to college can be both exciting and stressful for all involved. Your student will need family support in order to make their transition into the Wichita State University residential life experience a successful one.


Health - We have doctors, nurses and insurance specialists, and our Student Health clinic is open 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.

Advising - Our academic advisors genuinely care about your student and their academic progress. Learn more about the advising process.

Counseling - Sometimes we all need someone to talk to, and to help sort out the tough stuff. WSU students have access to professional counselors to help them address their personal concerns.

Safety - WSU has a tremendous safety record. Our on-campus police force is available (and on patrol) 24 hours a day.

And there's more, of course. Follow the links below to get a broader sense of the ways we'll take care of your student in their home away from home.
