Spring Opening 2017

Any student who plans to be new to housing for the Spring 2017 semester must fill out a Spring Housing Request form. This includes students who have been re-activated or re-admitted, students who were studying abroad for the Fall, students who were commuting for the Fall and wish to live on campus for the Spring, and any students that are new to the University for the Spring. Completed forms can be submitted via email to Sean.Burke@wne.edu or via fax to 413-796-2008. Students who submit requests for Spring housing will be contacted with a Spring housing assignment via email by January 9th, so please make sure you check the email address you list on the application form.
