Veterinary students at the Pullman site have a wide variety of housing options. There are several graduate student housing locations on campus. Most veterinary students, however, choose to live off campus. Some students rent apartments either alone or with roommates. Others choose to rent houses or townhouses with multiple roommates. Average rent in Pullman tends to be approximately $475 per person with a wide range depending on preferences. Another option that many veterinary students take advantage of is to purchase a house or mobile home and re-sell it after their time in Pullman.
Every year the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine Office of Admissions collects housing ads (also known as “the book”) from current veterinary students to circulate to the incoming class. The book can give incoming students a good idea of what types of housing might be available and what their options are. Many veterinary students prefer to live with other veterinary students as they often understand each other’s study habits and schedules.
Some students choose to live very close to the veterinary school, whereas others live further away in the neighboring towns of Colfax, Albion, or (depending on their residency status) across the Idaho border in Moscow. Depending on where they live, students can walk, bike, take the excellent Pullman City Transit system, or drive to their classes each day. Parking permits are required to park on campus.
