WSU Housing and Residence Life

Housing and Residential Life

Olympia

Olympia Avenue sets a new standard as a vibrant learning community enhanced by technology, meeting rooms. The hall staff is focused on the overall development of its residents and their awareness of sustainable practices.

This invigorating and friendly hall is an exciting place to socialize and study with peers. Olympia Avenue is a LEED Gold certified building and offers innovative green features such as geothermal heating and cooling, and storm water collection and reuse for irrigation.
