Housing for 2018-2019

Current students wishing to remain in on-campus housing for the next academic year have a variety of options available. In early November, students living in University Student Housing (USH) communities are given the opportunity to renew a space within those communities. Also starting in November, 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 wll 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 traditional housing. It is imperative that students follow all instructions carefully, as housing will be limited for returning students in 2018-2019.

New first-year and transfer students will receive housing information in their admission packets. Students should read this information carefully. New Student programs will send students their WCU e-mail address on a rolling basis. Starting in February, 2018, housing information will be sent via e-mail.
