If a student is assigned a shared bedroom and their roommate either moves out early or does not move, in then the student will be charged the private bedroom rate of $3375. The shared bedroom rate is only available to students actively sharing the bedroom.

Roommate Matching Information

Be sure to provide as much information as possible in order to help us match you with compatible roommates.

While we attempt to match roommates with similar housing characteristics roommate matching is not an exact science. We make attempts to place you with roommates we believe will provide you with a positive experience. Should you have issues with any of your roommates, you are encouraged to speak to your roommates and make agreements to address the issues. If after speaking to your roommates the concerns persist, you are encouraged to speak to an RA or one of the Housing staff.

Comet Bucks Declining Balance Food Service Account

Every semester a student chooses to live in Campus Housing they will be charged an amount to be applied to a declining balance supplemental spending plan for WITCC Food Service. This is not intended to be a comprehensive meal plan and it will likely not cover all of the student's food needs. These funds can be used at any of the ... this needs updated.

Note About Staggered Classes (Month Long Classes)

If a student's schedule includes staggered classes, please note the student must maintain a continued class load to remain in housing. For example, if a student has a class meeting the month of February and another class meeting the month of April, the student is not eligible to live in campus housing during March and must move out. However, if the student has a class meeting in February and a class meeting in April, but also has a class continuously throughout the entire semester, the student is able to remain in housing. If you are seeking short-term housing due to staggered classes, please contact the Campus Housing office as you may qualify for a housing rate lower than the semester rate.
