Students around table in McEachern Common Area

McEachern Hall is co-ed and open to graduate students and undergraduate students 19 years and older. We are open for occupancy during Thanksgiving, semester, and spring break periods.

Refurbished in 2009 with new furniture, carpet, and other amenities, McEachern offers a quiet atmosphere with maximum privacy for residents.

  • Move In Information

    General Move-In Information

    Official WSU move-in begins on Wednesday, August 15. While residence hall contracts begin on Saturday, August 11, WSU highly encourages students to arrive for move-in on August 15 to begin their successful college experience with Week Of Welcome events beginning that night. 

    This year, the WSU community and departments across campus collaborate to develop to best possible options to facilitate the thousands of students and cars that arrive on move-in day. Your arrival time, the hall you’re moving into, and the particular day you arrive, all play a factor in your experience. Those moving in will need to sign up and indicate their planned arrival time. Please complete the form located at https://movein.wsu.edu/signup 

    Please plan to come with patience and know that there will probably be some wait times to get into your unloading zone. Hundreds of volunteers, Housing & Residence Life staff, and Parking & Transportation Services staff want your move-in to be smooth and low stress. They are easily identifiable and happy to help. Please keep in mind that pets are not allowed in the residence halls when moving in.

    You can find more information about move-in at https://movein.wsu.edu/  Information will also be shared and live tweeted on move-in day, please follow us @reslifewsu and use #WSUWOW

    Specific Instructions for McEachern Hall

    Drive to your assigned hall and look for the parking staff and temporary parking signage directing you to an active unloading zone.

    Proceed to the front desk and check in with your Cougar Card or photo ID. Sign up for a cart if you need one or look for move-in volunteers.

    As parking is at a premium, once your car is unloaded, it must be relocated to a parking lot. Parking staff will be on site to assist you with directions on best parking lot options.

    Extra recycling containers are brought in specifically for move-in. Please pay attention to where you are disposing of garbage versus recycling.

    For hanging items on your walls in McEachren Hall, please use push pins. Do not use 3M mounting products, double-sided mounting products, permanent mounting products, blue mounting putty, masking tape, or duct tape. McEachern has several walls with wall carpeting; please use tacks and pins on these walls, never use 3M Command strips.

    Words of Wisdom from past students and parents

    Rooms are smaller than you think. Spend some time looking at the photos and room dimensions and be realistic with what will fit. Review what you can’t bring – the list is specific for each hall.
