We at Whitworth take great pride in the athletic accomplishments of our students; we strive to equip our student-athletes to excel in sports, in academics, and in life.

Student Life

Students come to Whitworth University not just to be taught, but to learn. They come for an education. And we recognize that a sound education is not limited to the classroom or to formal educational activities; there is another side to the curriculum. The student-life program is the “other side” of this educational process. It is an opportunity to deal with questions like these: “Who am I, and what are my gifts?” “How do I develop durable, trustworthy relationships?” “How do I grow spiritually, and how can I find ways to express my faith in service to others?”


Our active Student Life at Whitworth includes the amazing residence halls, numerous student clubs, intramural athletics, many spiritual life offerings, and celebration of cultural diversity.


Through the building of mentoring relationships and a wide variety of programs, the student-life division assists students in meeting these challenges, while affirming the growth and change that occur in their lives. Within the division there are competent counselors, career advisors, resident directors, study-skills specialists, health educators, student-activities advisors, ethnic-minority student advisors, international-student advisors and a chaplain to facilitate this personal growth and development of leadership skills.


“In support of the mission of Whitworth University, the Student Life Division prepares students for the future by empowering them to become independent individuals who compassionately engage and effectively serve people and the world around them.”

Campus Housing

Whitworth students live on campus for at least 2 years and have 10 wonderful residence halls to choose from. 4 out of 5 students said living on campus enhanced their academic performance, among many other benefits.


One thing that sets Whitworth’s residence life experience apart is our PrimeTime offerings. Each day from 8-10 p.m. you will find student leaders available in the lounge or “living room” of the residence halls. The student leaders are there for a variety of reasons: to offer some sort of activity for residents to be involved in, to be a listening ear, or to get supplies that may be needed (vacuums, cleaning supplies, games, etc.). It is a great place to get to know other people who live in the building.
