Housing Selection Process

Below is a list of important dates to remember that include when applications will be made available, application deadlines, and lottery information. Please remember that these dates could be subject to change, so we encourage you to check your email for updates.

For students who will be studying abroad in the fall please note the College will not be able to hold spaces in any on campus housing while you are abroad. Those students studying abroad in the fall will be guaranteed housing when they return to WVWC in the spring.

All applications will be made available to students online through the Residence Life website. If you have any questions about housing for the upcoming school year please email housing@wvwc.edu.
