For Parents of Current Resident Students

Residence Hall End-of-Semester Closing

The North Campus traditional residence halls and South Campus Apartment Complex close for the semester on May 9, 2013, at 6:00 pm.  All students must check-out 24 hours after their last final exam, or if their last exam is on Friday, by 6:00 pm.  Graduating seniors should plan to check out by 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 10. 

It is necessary that all residents check out correctly.  Residents failing to return their room key will be charged a fee of $30.00.   Some facilities have extra keys and some fees are higher.  Students should follow their hall’s checkout procedures to avoid complications or billing. 

Residents are expected to read information sent via e-mail and distributed through their Resident Assistant to find out information about the checkout procedure.  Residents are responsible for following this information correctly.  The Resident Director/Graduate Hall Director will do a final inspection of each room after the residence hall closes.  Additional charges may be billed to one or both residents if damages are discovered during this inspection, even if they had not previously been noted by a Resident Assistant.

For more information about check-out procedures, please check our home page; closing information will be posted in the “Announcements” area in mid- to late- April. 

Housing for 2014-2015

At this time, we are only accepting waitlist applications for housing.  This housing application process does not guarantee a student a space for 2014-2015.  We encourage students who wish to complete a waitlist application to also consider housing options off-campus. Waitlist applications are available in 202 Lawrence starting April 14, and are not processed until the summer months. 

Any questions regarding this information should be directed to the Office of Residence Life and Housing Services at housing@wcupa.edu or 610-436-3306. Questions regarding Allegheny Hall, Brandywine Hall, University Hall, the Village Apartments or East Village Apartments, can be directed to the University Student Housing staff at leasing@ushcommunities.org or 610-430-4988.  


For Parents of Incoming Students

All incoming freshmen who were admitted as on-campus residents and who have paid their $400 Admission/Housing deposit AND have completed their online Housing Preference Form, will be sent the appropriate housing application materials on a rolling basis.   Please refer to your student’s individual packet or e-mail for the applicable deadlines.  After the student’s deadline, on-campus housing is forfeited.

Students may request another resident student as a roommate.  Instructions will be sent to residents of traditional halls in May. 

Transfer students who are admitted as an on-campus resident student should complete their online Transfer Housing Intent form as soon as possible.  The Village Apartments, East Village Apartments, and Commonwealth Hall have space available for our incoming transfer students.  Leasing materials will be sent from University Student Housing directly to students.  Questions regarding The Village Apartments, East Village Apartments, and Commonwealth Hall can be directed to the University Student Housing staff at leasing@ushcommunities.org  or 610-430-4988. 

Any questions regarding this information can be directed to the Office of Residence Life and Housing Services at housing@wcupa.edu or 610-436-3306.
