Resident Advisors (RA’s)

RA’s are student who have been carefully selected and trained to help their peers navigate the variety of resources on campus and in the Rocky Mount community while also providing a sense of order and upholding safety/security procedures in the residence halls. There is an RA assigned to every floor in each of the traditional halls and 1 per building in the smaller halls. Each hall has a RA staff member responsible for duty coverage as a student resource every night of the week. Applications are typically made available in the Office of Student Affairs and by email to all students in early February.

Desk Workers

Desk workers monitor visitation at the front entrance of each residence hall during evening hours. Students with Federal Work Study that are able to effectively enforce policies amongst their peers are encouraged to apply by contacting a professional staff member. Most hiring is done at the beginning of each academic year.

Room & Roommate Assignments

Continuing Students

Students who are returning have the opportunity to select their rooms and roommates by participating in the Room Selection Process in early April. While there is no guarantee that requests can be granted, they will be honored whenever possible. Returning students may sign up for Nash, Collins, Boddie, Jin, Bradley, Taylor, or the Wesleyan Inn. Requests for particular roommates should be indicated on the housing application and both students should attend the Room Selection Process meeting together. Single rooms are offered based on academic seniority and cumulative GPA.

 

New Students

New Students are assigned rooms based on the date the enrollment deposit and housing application are received.  New students may request a roommate on their housing applications.  Both students must have mutually indicated this request.  New students who do not request roommates are assigned based on the personal information and lifestyle preferences indicated on the housing application.  New students will be first assigned to Edgecombe and Petteway and then other halls if capacity is exceeded.  New international students are generally assigned to Nash Hall.  All official room and roommate assignment information will be sent out in the 3rd week of July.

Our Residence Halls have both professional and paraprofessional live-in staff available to residents.  Staff members are  responsible for the educational, social, behavioral and administrative aspects of the residence halls and the students living there.  Both paraprofessional staff and professional staff are trained in conflict resolution, program/activity development, crisis management, confrontation, and most importantly, to be an accessible resource for students.

In order to have the full educational experience while attending Wesleyan, all full-time students must live in the residence halls and maintain a residential meal plan. If you want to live off campus, you must make an official request and meet one of the following criteria:

  • You reside with a parent or guardian within 50 miles of the main campus
  • You have at least 60 credit hours and a minimum 2.75 GPA
  • You are 22 years of age or older (or will be by Aug. 31st of the relevant academic year)
  • You are an international student who has lived on NCWC’s campus for two semesters
  • You are married (copy of wedding certificate required)
  • You are considered an independent student by the Office of Financial Aid

To make an official request:

New Students

Complete the Housing Application available on the “Housing Application & Roommate Info” section above. After downloading that form, you will find it includes a section for you to request permission to live off campus.

Continuing Resident Students

Students who wish to live off-campus for the next academic year must submit the Continuing Student Application for Permission to Live Off Campus to the Office of Student Affairs during the announced period. This process is typically offered for 1-2 weeks in early March. Specific dates are announced annually through all student email accounts, flyers, etc. Late requests made after the end of the announced period are unlikely to be considered. Select button below to complete application.

Individuals that do not meet any of the above criteria can submit an appeal to the Office of Student Affairs to have their individual circumstances considered. These appeals should also be submitted during the announced period when applications are being accepted.

All applications must be turned in to the Office of Student Affairs by the deadline announced during the annual application process. Requests made after the beginning of the fall semester will not be considered (except for new students arriving in the spring semester). Also note that requests to move off campus in the middle of the academic year will not be considered as the NCWC housing contract is for the entire academic year.

Once a student has received permission to live off campus, this permission is granted for duration of their continuous enrollment at the College. If a student leaves NC Wesleyan and is later re-admitted, they must apply again for permission to live off campus.
