Room & Roommate Assignments

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 Roberson and Petteway and then other halls if capacity is exceeded. All official room and roommate assignment information will be sent out in the 3rd week of July.

Students are encouraged to get in touch with their roommate immediately after receiving their assignment in order to begin getting to know one another and discussing plans for their room! We have created the Room4Growth Guide to help you get started!

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 Pash, Collins, Boddie, Jin, Bradley or Taylor. 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.

Off-Campus Housing Requirements:

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 married (copy of wedding certificate required)
  • You are considered an independent student by the Office of Financial Aid

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.
