Witten'Burbs (Houses & Apartments)

Students at Wittenberg know that where they live can greatly enrich how they learn, which makes our University District (The Witten'Burbs) extremely popular with juniors and seniors.

Traditional Houses and Apartments

University houses and apartments are equipped with full kitchens and bathrooms and include all utilities (gas, electric, water, sewer, trash). Students are responsible for setting up their own telephone, cable, and internet accounts (access points are available in all properties). Most properties are not furnished and require students to bring their own furniture. None of the traditional houses or apartments have university provided laundry machines although some may have hook-ups available. All properties have heat service but most do not have central air. All units have kitchens equipped with fridge/freezer, stove/oven, and sink; some have dishwashers as well although it is not common. If residents want to bring in other appliances not already present in their unit (a/c units, laundry machines, etc.), they must request permission in advance and get approval from Residence Life and Physical Plant prior to bringing the appliance. Students should keep in mind overall electrical draw of the appliances they wish to bring.

Sprecher and Keller Apartments

Keller (4-bedroom) and Sprecher (3-bedroom) apartments are fully equipped with sofa, chairs, coffee table, and dining table/counter and seating. Each resident has a private, lockable bedroom furnished with one bed, dresser, desk, desk chair, and closet. The fully equipped kitchens have fridge/freezer, stove/oven, range hood/microwave combo, and dishwasher. Apartments feature central air/heating, carpeting throughout living room and bedrooms, private patio, exterior entrances, miniblinds throughout, and all-inclusive utilities (electric, gas, water/sewage, trash). Apartment amenities include cable, campus internet/wireless, resident-only parking, security lighting, and common laundry room. The laundry rooms are kept locked and are intended for resident use only (each apartment has its own laundry room key). Laundry machines are coin-operated. It is the responsibility of all residents to keep the laundry room and stairwells clean and to remove their own trash from the area. Individual unit furniture should never be removed from the unit or used outside.
