Freeport: Your Home Away From Home

With its vibrant culture and modern, small-town atmosphere, Freeport offers students the opportunity to live and study in a place that is exotic, yet familiar.

There is a wide range of housing options within walking distance of both the Western Atlantic University School of Medicine (WAUSM) campus and shopping districts, and our Housing Department will work with you to find one that meets your needs and budget.

Upon acceptance, you will gain access to our exclusive Housing Database, which lists only housing options that have been vetted by WAUSM and meet our student residence criteria.

All of the listed options are fully furnished and move-in ready. You can choose from a variety of styles – apartment, condo, or single-family homes – many with waterfront views!
