The Residence Hall is remaining open to serve current residents; however we are no longer accepting applications for new residents for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.
We encourage current residents who can stay home to do so. Any current resident who does opt to end their housing contract early and move out for Spring Quarter can do so without penalty.
We also recognize that not all residents have that option and will need to stay. We are working to increase sanitization of shared spaces and encourage social distancing within the hall. To help support this, we are working to eliminate shared bedrooms and residents who do stay may be required to move to a new room in order to facilitate this.
PLEASE CONTACT JEREMY SNYDER WITH ANY QUESTIONS: JSNYDER@WVC.EDU / 509-682-6706

Frequently Asked 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.
All floors are co-ed but pods are by gender. You have access to wireless and high-speed Internet connections and cable television. Phone jacks for landlines are in each room. You are responsible for bringing your own phone, if you choose, and arranging phone service with a provider.
You will be assigned a twin bed, desk, chair, wardrobe and a chest with three drawers. You need to bring your own sheets, towels, pillows, toiletries and any other personal items. A refrigerator and microwave are located in each common area, but you may choose to have your own mini-fridge and a microwave in your room. Hotplates are not allowed.
One room on each floor is ADA accessible. There is elevator service to all floors from the ground level. If you need special accommodations, contact the residential life coordinator at 509.682.6706.
