Kirkland Hall & Haake Hall

Kirkland Hall and Haake Hall are located on the southwestern corner of Main Campus next to Facilities Services and across the street from Kryzsko Commons. 

Kirkland-Haake features suite-style units that include a private bathroom, shower, and common area.

These residence halls mirror each other—meaning the 2 buildings have the same design, only flipped. 

Kirkland-Haake is a great option for anyone who wants privacy and a suite-style experience during their time at WSU. 

Haake Hall primarily houses first-year and transfer students, whereas Kirkland Hall houses a combination of first-year, upper-class, and transfer students.

Both buildings are co-ed, but individual units are single-gendered per our housing policies. 

Gender-inclusive housing is available for upper-level students in Kirkland.

Front Desks & Mail Area

The first thing you’ll see when you walk into either Kirkland or Haake halls is the front desk. 

At the front desk, you can use your Warrior ID to check-out kitchen equipment, board games, DVDs, basic tools, jumper cables, and more.

This is the area where you’ll check in yourself or guests who plan to stay in your room overnight, too. Please stay up to date on housing policies to ensure you aren’t in violation.

The entryway in Kirkland Hall also includes the mail area, where students living in both Kirkland and Haake halls get their mail. 

You can pick up any packages you receive that can’t fit inside your mailbox behind the front desk. You’ll get an email notifying you that you have a package waiting for pickup. 

Another essential near the front desk is a printer that you can use to print your homework assignments, study notes, or lecture slides from class.


Each floor of Kirkland-Haake has both a state-of-the-art kitchen and an eating area for all building residents to use. 

The kitchen facilities are equipped with a refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, sink, and plenty of counter space for you to prepare a meal. 

You can check-out any kitchen equipment you don’t bring during move-in at the front desk of both buildings. 

There’s also a bar-top overhang with stools as well as multiple tables and chairs for you to enjoy a meal either alone or with others. 


Each floor of Kirkland-Haake also has a comfy lounge. 

Work through a lab report or an upcoming presentation with your class partner at the tables. 

Spread out on the couches and chairs for a watch party of professional sports games, movies, and television shows. 

Or you can even challenge your roommate(s) or friends to a game of foosball. 

Head over to the front desk in either building to check-out board games, foosball table balls, and DVDs. 

Resident Assistants (RAs) also tend to host fun floor and building events in these lounges, so keep an eye on when events will be held in these areas. 


On the second and fourth floors of Kirkland-Haake, you’ll find laundry facilities where you can do your laundry for free. 

Each laundry room has 4 high efficiency washers and 4 dryers.

Don’t forget your detergent and dryer sheets! 

Conference Room

On the first floor of Haake Hall is a large conference room.

This conference room is perfect for building events and activities, movie showings, and faculty and staff meetings.

24/7 Security & Controlled Door Access

To maintain your safety on campus, only students who live in Kirkland-Haake can use their Warrior IDs to enter either of the 2 buildings. 

That means students living in other residence halls or off-campus guests must have a Kirkland-Haake resident accompany and escort them to and from the buildings when visiting.

Kirkland-Haake resident hosts must check in their guests at the front desk if they’re visiting after 11pm.
