Housing for Spring 2015

Current students can apply for housing starting in October.  Information will be available in the announcements area of our website. 
New transfer and first-year students will be sent information to their WCU e-mail account shortly after their $400 Admission/Housing deposit has been paid.

Housing for 2015-2014

Current students wishing to remain in on-campus housing for the next academic year have a variety of options available.  In November, students living in University Student Housing (USH) communities are given the opportunity to renew a space within those communities.  Also in the fall, the College Arms assignment process begins for priority consideration and continues until all spaces are filled.  All other housing assignment processes occur in the very beginning of the spring semester.  Students will be sent information via e-mail to their WCU e-mail accounts with information and deadlines regarding USH community applications, South Campus Apartment applications, and the Room Selection process for North Campus.  It is imperative that students follow all instructions carefully, as housing will be limited for returning students in 2015-2016.
New first-year and transfer students will receive housing information in their admission packets.  Students should read this information carefully.  Housing information will be sent to students’  WCU e-mail addresses on a rolling basis beginning in February 2015. 

Important Upcoming Dates

Fall Break : Monday and Tuesday, October 6 and 7, 2014 have been designated as the University’s Fall Break for students. There are no classes scheduled for these two days, although University offices are open for business. 

During the Fall Break, all student housing, in both residence halls and apartments, will remain open.  Many students choose to leave campus for the weekend.  As a result, we advise students to look for changes in the dining and shuttle bus schedules.  Dining Services will have their hours for Fall Break posted on this website:
The campus shuttle schedule is posted on this website:

After the Fall Break, classes resume on Wednesday, October 8, 2014.
