Guest House building


Looking for housing? We can help.

We have created a specific agreement with the Guest House at PNNL to create Living Learning Communities (LLCs) for students who would like to live with other WSU students. We will also have on-campus housing options in the near future.

If you have questions about housing contact us at or 509-372-7300.

Discover The Guest House

The Guest House is located less than two miles away from Washington State University Tri-Cities campus.

WSU Tri-Cities is striving to maximize student living by offering Living Learning Communities (LLCs) in which students can build relationships with others who share the same interests as themselves. At the Guest House, WSU Tri-Cities wants to combine students’ academic interests and objectives with their living arrangements.

Students with common academic aspirations will live in the same suite, developing personal and professional relationships with both students and faculty in their specific field of study. The LLCs include the Chancellor’s Scholars Program, the Viticulture & Enology Community, the STEM Community, and the Service & Leadership Community.

Washington State University Tri-Cities is dedicated to creating a dynamic student experience by providing an outlet for students to make connections with others who have common interests. Being part of a community means sharing the same values or interests as others within the community. During college, students should become active citizens, get involved and contribute to something larger than themselves. Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) at Washington State University Tri-Cities will bridge students’ academic interests and goals with their living community at the Guest House.

Students with common academic interests will live together in the same Guest House suite and develop personal and academic relationships with other students and faculty from a specific field of study. Students will participate in out of the classroom activities that support their academic interests. Two of the LLCs will be focused on a scholars program and a general service and leadership interest instead of a specific academic discipline.

LLCs complement students’ classroom experience by providing enriched lifelong learning opportunities. Through formal and informal activities, students’ connection with faculty results in greater understanding of their academic pursuit, affirmation of career choice, and enhanced preparedness for a career path.
