Research consistently shows that students who live on campus get better grades, persist to graduation, and have an overall better college experience than those who do not.

The Housing Director Student Self-Service () is the main portal for WCU residential students to check the status of your application and assignment, submit work orders, view your billing, search for a roommate, see waiting list information, and more!  The online process for applying for housing and submitting a housing deposit is referred to as MyHousing. The following services are available within in this website:

  1. Returning students can re-apply for housing, select roommates, and participate in real-time online room selection processes.
  2. New/Transfer students can file a Housing Application and pay the housing prepayments online.
  3. Resident profiles can be submitted by answering personal/living preference questions that will later be used for room assignments.
  4. Electronically sign your housing agreement.
  5. Residents and Commuter students can register for or change meal plan(s).
  6. Submit maintenance requests for your living unit.

Our goal is to assist you in the transition from life at home to life on campus. Be sure to read through our website for more information regarding Res Life and Housing Policies and Procedures, Housing Standards, and other helpful tidbits
