Mask Update

WCSU has re-instituted its masking requirement.  This means that, in all public areas of the residence halls, students will be required to be masked.  Students may remove their masks within their own assigned room/suite/apartment.

  1. Masks are required in all indoor spaces at this time. We will consider removing masks under the following conditions:
    1. We have a vaccination rate of 80% or higher within the WCSU community, and
    2. The local infection rate remains at a low or moderate rate per CDC tracking measures (https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view).
  2. Visitors must wear masks at all times while in the residence halls, including in student rooms, suites, and apartments.

Our offices

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.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.
