The halls are open for Thanksgiving to those who register to stay.

If you want to stay on campus during the Thanksgiving Break (Wednesday, Nov. 22 - Sunday, Nov. 26), you must complete an application to stay.  Applications are located at the Info Desks in your building, and are due to your RD no later than noon on November 20th. 


No place like WCSU for the holidays?

happy holidays logoNeed to stay on campus for the Intersession?  If you lived on campus for the Fall semester AND are living on campus in the spring, you may opt to stay on campus for the winter intersession.  The cost is $315/week, and meals are not provided (the meal plan is not in effect during intersession, although limited food service is available at the Daily Grind, Monday - Friday).  The only halls that are open are Pinney and Centennial.  If you do not live there currently,  you are responsible for finding a suite or apartment where the residents agree to allow you to stay over the break, and they must sign your application form granting permission.  We may be able to assist you if you don't know anyone, but you should work on that now if you think  you'll need to stay.

You must complete an application to stay, which is due to the Housing & Residence Life office by noon on December 13th.  Payment is due at that time as well, and must be paid at the Cashier's Office in Old Main or online.  The application form is HERE.


 

Room Selection logoDo you want to change rooms for the Spring Semester?


If you want to stay in your same building and room - you don't need to do anything! 

However, if you wish to move to a new assignment, please read the following carefully.

Assignment Change Request Forms have been printed and are currently available at your building's Info Desk.  Stop by ASAP to pick one up and fill it out.  Once you've done that, you must turn it in to the Housing & Residence Life Offices in Newbury Hall.  Forms are due by 4 pm on Thursday, November 9th.

On the Assignment Change Request Form, there are several options from which to choose. Here are their descriptions:
1.  I would like to move into Honors Housing.
+  To select this option, you MUST be eligible to live in honors housing.

2.  I would like to change rooms within my hall.
+  Check this box if you want to stay in the building you are currently living in, but want a new room.
+  On Tuesday, November 14th, between 10 am and Noon, or between 1 pm and 3 pm, you will visit your RD's +  office, where you will be able to select from any open spaces in your building.
+  If you can't make either of these times, you must complete a Proxy Form giving someone else the ability to select a space for you.  Choose a friend to do this, or give it to your RD, and s/he will select for you.
+  It is not acceptable to skip classes or appointments in order to participate in this selection procedure.

3.  I would like to move to a different building.
+  You must be eligible to move into the building you want to move to (21 years old or 57 credits for Pinney, 20 years old or 24 credits for Grasso, and 19 years old or 9 credits for Centennial).
+  On Thursday, November 16th, between the hours of 10 am and Noon, or between 1 pm and 3 pm, you must come to the Housing & Residence Life Offices in Newbury Hall, where you will be able to select from any open spaces in the building you wish to move to.
+  If you can't make either of these times, you must complete a Proxy Form giving someone else the ability to select a space for you.  Choose a friend to do this, or give the form to your RD or the Housing Office staff, and someone will select for you.
+  It is not acceptable to skip classes or appointments in order to participate in this selection procedure.

4. I will be: Graduating Fall 2017, becoming a part-time student for Spring 2018, or withdrawing from the University.
+  If you choose one of these options, you must follow through with that choice.  The Housing Contract you signed is an Academic Year-long contract.  The option you select here will be verified.  If you then remain enrolled as a full-time student, charges will be placed on your account for Spring 2018 Housing.  There is, however, no guarantee that you will be placed back into your Fall 2017 assignment.

There are several Meal Plan Options on this form.  Please select from one of these options (remember - if you are remaining in the same building, your choices will be limited to the meal plans available for the building  you will be living in):
1. I want to keep my current meal plan. 
+  Check this box if you want to keep your current meal plan.

2.  I want to change my current meal plan to...
+  Check this box and circle your choice of meal plan.   Please remember that Newbury, Litchfield, Fairfield, and Centennial may only select from the Ultimate, Platinum, or Platinum Plus plans.  Grasso and Pinney Halls can select from any of the meal plans.

 

Cable TV information:

 
For a new list of the updated cable channels, please click on this link.

Your digital television must have a QAM tuner (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) to work with the school’s cable service. The QAM tuner allows your TV to receive high definition cable programming without a cable set top box. Unfortunately, some less expensive TVs come with a low quality QAM tuner that may not be able to pick up all the digital channels. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.

A NTSC (National Television System Committee) tuner is not compatible. This TV will require a digital-to-analog converter box to view television signals. (See information below to purchase a converter).

An ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner can receive digital signals but is not compatible with the school’s cable system.

Here is a link to an informal compatibility reference for newer devices. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.
