Housing Information 2017-2018

Incoming Freshmen

The housing process for incoming first-year students will begin on February 13, 2017. Incoming Freshmen admitted as on-campus residents and who have paid their $200.00 admissions deposit will be sent an e-mail to their WCU e-mail account with instructions for choosing their housing.  These e-mails will be sent on a rolling basis starting on February 15, and will be sent in deposit date order, starting with deposits paid in September, October, and November.  Students who paid their deposits in December and January will be sent their instructions e-mail during the week of February 20.  All other students will receive their e-mails on a rolling basis after that, and there is often a week-long delay between deposit payment and the housing instructions e-mail.

Incoming Freshmen who are interested in North Campus Traditional Housing should follow the appropriate instructions in their e-mail.  The Traditional housing application will not be available to the student until the instructions e-mail has been sent.  

Incoming Transfers

Housing for transfer students is provided by University Student Housing, our affiliated partner. Transfer students will be contacted via e-mail starting in March with more information.
