Housing for 2015-2016

At this time, all housing for Fall 2015 is completely full.  Housing applications for Spring 2016 will be available on-line in October. 

Housing for 2016-2017

Students wishing to remain in on-campus housing for the next academic year have a variety of options available.  Mid-way through the fall semester, 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 2016-2017.

Important Upcoming Dates

Fall Break: Monday and Tuesday, October 5 and 6, 2015 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 7, 2015.
