Residence Hall

New Hours beginning August 2

The campus will be open to students/
public during the following days/hours:
Monday - Thursday
8am to 3pm

  • 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 2021, which means all rooms will once again become shared rooms. 

  • COVID-19 vaccines are encouraged for summer residents.  

  • Complete COVID-19 vaccines will be REQUIRED for all residents beginning Fall 2021.

  • 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 have been vaccinated, or will be before arriving, on the initial application. Residents must 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 vaccination 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 non-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; we are unable to provide 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 your 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.

Watch your student email for notifications regarding changing processes and procedures.

Maintain guidelines established by the CDC for personal safety:

  • Vaccination is recommended
  • Nose and mouth coverings are required in all common areas
  • Keep a 3 ft distance between you and others (this was recently updated from 6ft)

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.

Any residents staying in the hall must maintain guidelines established by the CDC for personal safety:
