Welcome to the Birnam Wood community, WWU’s only apartment living for non-first-year students.
Birnam Wood is located half a mile from the campus core, on the bus line and close to shopping, restaurants and I-5. The BW staff of Community Advisers provides support that does not come with other off-campus apartments; they plan a variety of community programming as well as special events. Residents may join an active Community Council and participate in activities such as movie nights, potlucks and more.
Below you will find information like front desk hours, community updates, floor plans, professional live-in staff, and more.
