Current students will find a three-phase application process to apply for WCU housing for the 2023-2024 academic year. All phases must be completed by the deadlines indicated and students are advised to check email frequently for important updates.
- The Office of Residence Life and Housing will begin accepting housing applications for the 2023-2024 Academic Year (fall and spring) on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.

Students who complete the WCU Housing Application will be notified of their status to participate in the room selection process on Friday, December 9. The room selection process will begin Wednesday, February 1, 2023.
Once a student selects a room placement, they will be required to sign the WCU 2023-2024 Occupancy Agreement and secure their selection with a $200 deposit within two weeks. Failure to complete this phase of the process will result in the loss of the room placement and removal from the WCU housing process.
All announcements, deadlines and reminders will be communicated to all students’ WCU email addresses. Be sure to check email frequently for important updates.
