About Us & Staff

Parents Information - December 2017/Early January 2018

For Parents of Current Resident Students

 Winter Break Information

The following information is provided to help students and their families prepare for the closing of the North Campus residence halls for the semester break. Students who live in the South Campus and College Arms apartments are permitted to remain in their apartments over the break period if they are continuing as students for the Spring 2017 semester.  

All residence halls will close on Saturday, December 16, 2017 at noon for undergraduate students and on Sunday, December 17, 2017 at 5 p.m. for graduating seniors. Students must sign out within 24 hours after their last examination, unless it occurs on December 16, or if they are graduating. 

Students must complete a list of items to prepare their room for the break. Resident Assistants hold floor meetings to communicate this information with students. Information about the closing schedule for campus dining facilities is also shared with students at this time. In addition, the information is sent to each student’s WCU e-mail account and is on our Website – see link under our announcements area of our home page.

Mail is not forwarded during the holiday vacation. Family and friends are encouraged to send mail to students’ home addresses.  

Students who are not returning to the residence halls for the Spring 2018 semester must schedule and complete a check-out with their Resident Assistant and return their room key before leaving campus. Failure to do so can result in a charge for a lock change. If students are planning to commute or move off-campus while they attend WCU in the Spring, they must request a release from their student occupancy agreements. More information about this process is available under the Housing Information-> Forms and Applications section of our website.

All residence halls reopen for the Spring 2018 semester on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 9 a.m. Meal plans will start with brunch on this date.

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, Commonwealth Hall, University Hall, The Village or East Village can be directed to the University Student Housing staff at info@ushcommunities.com or 610-430-4988.

 

Parents Information

For Parents of Incoming Resident Students for Spring 2018

Students are sent housing information via e-mail when they are admitted as resident students and have paid their deposit.  As of December 7, 2017, North Campus Traditional and South Campus Apartment spaces are still available for the Spring semester.  However, we anticipate that spaces will be filled shortly after that.  Students who applied prior to December 15, 2017 will be sent their Spring 2018 housing assignment information via e-mail (to their WCU account) on or after January 12.          

All residence halls open for the Spring 2018 semester on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 9 a.m.  Meal plans will start with brunch on this date.

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. 

 

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.
