Please join University Residences introducing the Western community to Black Affinity Housing from 10-11 a.m. on Friday, April 9.
Located in brand new Alma Clark Glass Hall, affinity-based housing facilitates members of the Black identified community in supporting each other, adding psychological comfort and safety for those who choose to live there. University Residences collaborated with campus partners, creating a Black Affinity Housing advisory group, to create safer spaces, collaborate with campus resources, and benefit the entire community.
Alma Clark Glass Hall is designed with accessibility, sustainability and inclusion in mind, replacing Highland Hall and extending the ridge complex north toward College Hall and main campus. The construction of the new hall and Black Affinity Housing was affirmed by President Randhawa and the Board of Trustees as Western works creating a more inclusive campus and providing additional support and resources toward students of diverse populations, with a specific floor centering on the Black student experience. The building design and its program support a commitment from University Residences and Western, building a more inclusive university.
Please join us on April 9 to learn more about Glass Hall and the Black Affinity Housing program, and see https://housing.wwu.edu/black-affinity-housing for more information.
