For Parents of Incoming Resident Students for Fall 2017
- Students who have been admitted as resident students have the opportunity to choose
traditional residence halls, managed by the Office of Residence Life and Housing at
West Chester University, or the affiliated suite-style halls, managed by University
Student Housing, a subsidiary of the West Chester University Foundation. Students
who have paid their $200 admissions deposit will be sent an e-mail with links (starting
in mid-February) to the on-line housing application materials. An additional $200
deposit/fee will be required. Housing assignments will be made based on availability.
Availability in the Traditional Halls is limited for the 2017-2018 academic year,
and may be filled prior to May 1, 2017.
- Both traditional and affiliated housing have roommate matching programs, and more
information will be provided to the student as part of or shortly after their application
materials are complete. Students are discouraged from using any roommate matching
service on the internet that requires a fee.
- If students will be seeing their family physician, they should discuss with him or
her the meningococcal vaccination. As of August 2002, Pennsylvania enacted legislation
requiring all college students living in campus housing in Pennsylvania to have a
meningococcal vaccination. More information is available at: http://www.cdc.gov/meningitis/index.html
For All Parents
Just a Reminder…
Encourage your student to register for the Campus E2 Emergency Alert system. Once they have created their E2 account, they can add a second phone number, such
as a parent’s mobile phone.
