A diagram of a typical relationships developed by a Wikipedian in Residence

Els Viquipedistes en Residència són viquimedistes que dediquen temps a a treballar dins una organització. Normalment els Viquipedistes en Residència són compensats econòmicament per la institució o per un capítol de Wikimedia, però també poden ser voluntaris. Un Viquipedista en Residència no és simplement un editor de la casa: el seu rol és sobretot fer possible que la organització i els seus membres mantinguin una relació productiva amb l'enciclopèdia i la seva comunitat un cop la Residència s'hagi acabat. El model de Viquipedista en Residència va ser inicialment experimentat per la iniciativa GLAM, però després ha estat adoptat a altres tipus d'organització.
