Housing Related Forms & Documents for Residential Students
Most of the forms and documents that WCSU residential students will need can be found here.
For other information or additional help, contact us or see your RA/RD.
Many forms are PDF. If you need to download Adobe Reader, you may do so for free here:
In order to live on campus, every potential resident must complete and submit a Housing Application by the appropriate due date (May 1st is the last date to submit an application for guaranteed fall housing). Applications will be accepted after that date, and acted upon as space is available. Please remember that although we do our best honor your requests, living habits, and preferences for buildings and roommates, we may not be able to accommodate them, and they are never guaranteed.
If a space becomes available in a room, suite, or apartment at any time, the Housing & Residence Life office retains the right to assign and refill that space.
In order to be released from the year-long housing contract, students must complete the Housing Contact Cancellation Request form. This must be completed prior to the start of the semester for which the student is requesting to be released from the contract.
**Requesting a release from your contract in order to move off-campus is not generally considered a reason to be granted a release without substantial information and evidence of financial hardship.**
If you believe you need to return to campus earlier than your scheduled move-in time, you may request an early move-in. This spring, there is just one early arrival date: Sunday, January 20th, 2018 from 6 – 9 pm. Please fill out the form (link to the instructions and form in the title), and you will hear back via your WCSU email.
Guests under the age of 18 may be permitted to spend the night with a sibling or friend by providing a completed parental permission form, which must be submitted to the H & RL office no later than 24 hours before the overnight.
If you are providing permission for a child to visit for the weekend, please be sure that you have faxed the form to the Housing & Residence Life Office by noon on Friday. Forms that come in after that time cannot be guaranteed to be delivered, and the guests will be refused at the Information Desks.
Forms can be downloaded and faxed to 203-837-8529.
Students who require housing accommodations must fill out the application and present appropriate documentation.
For complete instructions on special housing accommodations, please see this Guidelines and Instructions form .
