Ware College House

Welcome To

Ware College House

In Necessariis Unitas

Ware College House is the largest of the three First-Year Communities located within the historic Quadrangle. Featuring traditional dormitory-style living, students live in either singles, doubles, or triples with shared baths. At the center of the Quad, Ware is home to McClelland dining café with grab-and-go options and retail items available for breakfast, lunch, and late night. Program communities are open to all residents, and help shape the House’s identity and are a great way to connect and learn from fellow housemates. Surrounded by historical architecture, residents spend their time playing ping pong, air hockey, and board games, as well as venturing to explore the City together.

The Ware College House Family

Ware College House is the place where you will meet your first friends on campus, the place where you'll have some of the most fun you’ve ever had, the place where you’ll learn how to live on your own, and where you’ll learn about yourself. If you walk out of Ware the same person you were when you walked in, well...one of us is doing something wrong.
