The Residence Hall is remaining open to serve current residents for Spring and Summer quarters. We are not opening up new applications for summer, but students with need can contact the Residence Life Office and we will assess requests on a case-by-case basis.
WVC is anticipating resuming normal residence hall operations for the 2020-21 school year, but we also recognize the situation with COVID-19 is still uncertain. This creates some important considerations:
We are eliminating room sharing which has reduced available spaces from 72 to just 36. Spaces are filled first come, first served so submit the application and deposit early to guarantee a space. We will open up spaces as social distance considerations allow which means that residents may get roommates as the year progresses.
If changing circumstances prevent you from moving in WVC will refund both the $200 admin fee and $200 cleaning deposit as long as you cancel before checking in.
Incoming residents will be required to sign a COVID-19 attestation. Students who have been potentially exposed or have symptoms may be required to self-quarantine prior to being able to move-in. Out-of-Area students traveling from hot spots states should be especially aware of this prior to travel.
Please note that in person application drop-off or payments will not be available until campus re-opens, which will probably not happen before Fall quarter starts. This is subject to the phased reopening plan for WA state so the situation is being continually monitored.
Previous residents who moved out during Spring 2020 due to campus closures and want to return must still complete a new application and make a new $200 refundable deposit. You do NOT need to pay the $50 application fee or $200 Admin fee again, however.
Current Residents still living in the hall for Spring 2020 must submit a new application if planning to continue for the 2020-21 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 as you may lose your spot if not.
