We welcome you to stay with us at Wright State University. Our guest housing program is designed to provide a clean, safe, and friendly campus stay for guests of the university and the companies within the metropolitan area. The guest housing program rents out rooms on a one per person-per bed structure. Many of our guests will only be in the Dayton area for the summer and want to avoid the difficulty of finding a furnished apartment. We have 2 bedroom or 4 bedroom furnished apartments available. As your host, we are always available to assist you. Please contact us if you have any questions at (937) 775-2645.
