International Student Academic Support
International students are an important part of the WOU community bringing a diversity of nationalities, cultures, and languages. ISAS was created to support the academic success of these students and the faculty who instruct them. Our responsibilities include:
The halls are broken into two loose groups to suit the residents who live there: First Year Halls and Upperclass Halls. First-year students who attend Western Oregon University within one year of high school graduation are required to live on campus. As a result, WOU provides up to four residence halls specifically designed for a first-year living experience.Western Oregon University offers a variety of living spaces for upperclass students to choose from as well. Both upperclass and first-year students are housed in the suite style rooms of Barnum Hall, and in single and double rooms in the themed communities in our newest hall, Ackerman Hall.
Hamersly Library supports Western Oregon University’s dedication to student success and enhances its commitment to discovery, creativity, critical thinking, and diversity by providing and encouraging the use of quality information, media resources, and services.
The Student Health and Counseling Center is here to provide support to our students for medical and counseling needs. We also provide health education, events, and prevention services to empower our students in making healthy choices for themselves.
The Intramural (IM) Sports program offers opportunities for the Western Oregon University community to participate in a variety of team and individual sport leagues. The program is designed in a manner that promotes safety, fairness, and equal opportunity for all to participate.
