Residence life at MUWCI


Our Approach to Living Together

Education doesn’t end at the classroom doors — at MUWCI, our students are always learning from one another, even outside of formal learning spaces.

The campus was designed to create an environment where students can informally interact with one another and with faculty. Our community is diverse, and these informal interactions help our students strengthen relationships and learn about cultures and perspectives different from their own.

In addition to the larger MUWCI community, we have micro-communities that give students multiple avenues to participate in campus and community life. These micro-communities serve as forums where every student has a voice and participates in shaping the community they live in.

Student Housing

The wadas are your home away from home. All students and faculty live on campus in one of five wadas. Every wada has approximately six student houses, each with two rooms, two bathrooms, and a house courtyard. Typically, four students — two first-years and two-second years — share a house.

There are approximately four to five faculty houses per wada. The faculty residents act as 'house parents' to the students living in their wada. Your house parents will periodically visit you and your housemates to ensure you're well settled, getting along with your roommates and doing your laundry frequently enough! One of the resident faculty members also acts as a wada parent, responsible for the safety and security of our students and promoting an open, positive atmosphere in the wada.

Finally, students are assigned to advisors who almost always live in the same wada, so they're close at hand for guidance about all things academic, social, and personal. The role of faculty as house parents, advisors, and wada parents is an excellent way for our students to learn from their mentors outside the context of academia.

Our students often organise events, movie nights, or dinners for their wada. You will live in the same wada for both years at MUWCI, building strong bonds with fellow wada residents during your time here.

Social and Common Spaces

The MUWCI campus creates an inclusive and engaging living-learning environment that fosters personal and academic development. Our informal and formal spaces provide plenty of opportunities to spend time with other students across campus.

Each house in a wada has a small courtyard shared by its eight residents. Step outside your house courtyard, and you will find the central court of your wada and a common room with a kitchen where you can hang out, cook, do homework, and attend wada meetings in a relaxed, comfortable environment.

The campus also has a Social Center (a recreation room), swimming pool, gymnasium, and a coffee shop. You can get to know students living in other wadas over a game of badminton or a cup of coffee. We also have multiple sit-outs, such as our pagoda, which overlooks the verdant hills that are home to our campus. It's the perfect place to catch your breath as you meditate or watch the sunset at the end of a busy day.

In addition to our social settings, our formal spaces offer students a way to engage in stimulating discussions and take ownership of their education. They can use the multi-purpose hall to hold discussions, meetings, guest lectures, and other campus-wide activities. The bi-monthly student-run college meetings held here are your place to discuss concepts that impact, engage, and inspire the entire MUWCI community.

Celebrating Difference

Throughout the year, we celebrate our cultural diversity and learn about the nuances of different cultures that can get lost in translation.

Being part of a diverse community help students learn about other cultures and traditions.
