Residence Hall

2021-22 Updated and COVID-19 INFORMATION

  • The residence hall will remain open for current residents who wish to extend into summer, as well as for the 21-22 school year. We will be returning to 100% capacity starting in Fall of 2022 which means all rooms will become shared rooms. 

  • COVID-19 vaccines are encouraged for any summer residents.  

  • Complete COVID-19 vaccines will be REQUIRED for all residents beginning Fall 2022. Any of the 3 approved vaccines are acceptable; Moderna, Pfizer, or Johnson and Johnson.  For Moderna and Pfizer, “complete” means having received both doses.

  • Residents must confirm that they been vaccinated, or will be before arriving, on the initial application. Residents must then show their vaccination card at move-in to verify but will not keep copies of the vaccination card or other information on file.

  • Athletes who move-in early will be considered Fall students and vaccine will be required even if physically moving in prior to the start of Fall quarter.

  • If a student has a medical or religious exemption for vaccines they may still be able to live in the residence hall, but it is important to understand what living in a student resident hall entails. It is a shared, enclosed space that would pose a high risk for un-vaccinated residents, especially ones with an underlying medical condition that might exclude them from getting the vaccine.  WVC has a single residence hall in what is called "Pod" style so we are unable to offer private living spaces.

Decisions regarding in person classes and the reopening of on campus offices and services for the 2021-22 school year are still in process.  The WVC Campus may not be fully open and many classes may still remain online for Fall quarter.  Things may open up gradually for Winter and Spring quarters, but this depends on a number of changing factors.
It is important for residents to consider all of these details when deciding if living on campus is still the best option.  We are planning to keep the residence hall open for those who need it, but also understand that staying home may be the best option after careful consideration.  In that case, it is important that you contact the Residence Life Manager before moving in date to cancel the contract and still be eligible for the full deposit refund.
  • If changing circumstances prevent you from moving in WVC will refund both the $200 admin fee and $200 deposit as long as you cancel before checking in.

Current Residents still living in the hall for Spring 2021 must submit a continuing resident application if planning to continue for the 2021-22 school year.  You do NOT need to make any additional payments.  Space is still first come, first served so please submit your renewal application ASAP.  You must also submit a separate Summer extension if you plan to stay in the hall for summer ’21.

Non-WVC students: students of other schools (WSU, CWU, etc) who have clinicals or other internships in the Wenatchee area during summer are eligible to stay in the WVC residence hall at our non-student/conference rate. Details and applications about this will be posted below soon.

Please note that in person application drop-off or payments will not be available until campus re-opens.  Instructions for how to submit applications and make payments are on the instructions page of the application packet.

PLEASE CONTACT THE RESIDENCE LIFE MANAGER AT RESLIFE@WVC.EDU / 509-682-6706 WITH ANY QUESTIONS.

The residence hall is a three-story building with four sections or pods around a common area on each floor. Each pod has three bedrooms containing two beds each, a bathroom with a shower and laundry facilities. You will be assigned a roommate or you can request a specific roommate when you apply for a room. Single rooms are not available. The hall has room for 75 students, including rooms for one RA per floor.
