Move-in Week/Office Coverage

Please be patient with us.  You may often find that it's easier  to email us at housing@wcsu.educreate new email.  We are currently without a secretary and our student staff will be in and out for class meaning it's more difficult to find us by phone.

We want to answer all your questions as quickly as possible - please give email a try if you haven't been able to reach us.

Our HRL offices are located in  Pinney Hall, where we’ll be found in apartments C21 and C24.

If you have housing questions, you may call 203-837-8533 (Monday – Friday, 8 am – 4:30 pm) or email us at housing@wcsu.educreate new email.

If you need to see us, please call 203-837-8533 or email housing@wcsu.educreate new email to schedule a virtual or in-person appointment. In-person appointments are welcome, but you’ll need an appointment to be able to be met at the entry to the building.  Questions and business may still be conducted through phone and email.

Television on campus – Important 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.

An 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.

Insurance Information
