IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR NEW, UNDERAGE (under 18)  STUDENTS:

Due to new email protocols, some of the emails going to parents of new (under 18-year old) students from our Housing Portal software have been flagged as “dangerous” mail by your providers.  This has kept you from being able to respond to and sign the applications/contracts for your underage new student.  We have temporarily resolved the matter, and shortly, parents will receive an email from mulvihille@wcsu.edu,  which will contain a link to our Housing Portal.  There is also a verification code.  The email will look like this:


From: housing@wcsu.edu [mailto:housing@wcsu.edu]
Sent: Thursday, June 24, 2021 10:28 AM
To: Edward Mulvihill <mulvihille@wcsu.edu>
Subject: Parental Verification for Student Housing Application

FIRSTNAME LASTNAME  has submitted the housing application - New to Housing Application - Fall 2021_U. Since the student is underage, your signature is required to complete the application.

Please click on this link (illustration only – YOUR link will be specific to YOUR student.)

...and sign your name after entering this code:    0K0000L00M0N                


Please follow the link in the email, and copy and paste the verification code, sign the form, and submit it.  Once this is completed, your students will be eligible to select a room as long as their meningitis vaccine information is on file.

If you still have questions, please call the office at 203-837-8533, or email housing@wcsu.edu.

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.

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.
