Our Campus

Facilities & Equipment

The learning model of the Wright Graduate University is a distributed, tutorial model, with one-on-one independent studies combined with weekend seminars and programs. Because Wright’s graduate learners and faculty are widely dispersed geographically, the majority of faculty-learner interaction is by phone and electronic mail. All WGU faculty are equipped with cell phones, remote computer access, and appropriate software, and strive to make themselves accessible through these media.

The community of WGU learners, faculty, and staff gather monthly for a weekend residential session on its campus at the Prairie Springs Woods Conference and Retreat Center near Elkhorn, Wisconsin.

The campus features two beautiful dome-shaped buildings, built with wooden beams arced into hyperbolic parabolas. The main floor of the second dome is the retreat center’s primary instructional and community gathering space, accommodating up to 115 individuals in lecture-style seating or 80 individuals seated at tables. The second dome’s lower level features a 300 square foot office and reception area. Including the three smaller buildings present at the center, there are a total of seven meeting spaces and dormitory-style sleeping quarters for up to 75 students and faculty.

The campus is equipped with a fully stocked mechanical shed, wireless Internet access, plentiful parking areas, and a private drive. The campus facility is also used as a training facility by Wright on a schedule that is compatible with its use by Wright Graduate University.

Student Housing

WGU provides on-campus housing for participants during the Residential Session weekends only. The cost of the accommodations is included with the course tuition fee. Because space is reserved, no refunds are offered to students who choose accommodations elsewhere. Students are responsible for transportation to and from the campus as well as their meals for the weekend. Rules and regulations that govern the residential weekends are distributed to students upon enrollment. Students that violate the rules and regulations will be required to leave the campus and will not receive academic credit for attending.

“One of the things that brought me to Wright was wanting to find work that gave me a sense of purpose. Thanks to WGU and the Wright foundation I have found meaning in my career. I want people to understand that you can keep learning and developing for as long as you intend it.” read Karen's story here
