Updated March 30, 2020

Residential Life Update

As of Monday, March 30, 2020, the residences halls, including Gateway Village, are open only to those who have applied and been approved to remain for extenuating circumstances.  Those who have not been approved may not re-enter until further notice.  Residents who were unable to move out all of their belongings before the 30th should hold their keys and notify the Residence Life office. Belongings will remain locked in student rooms until follow up move out dates are determined. 

Residence Life Offices in the Campus Center remain open Monday through Friday, 8:30am - 4:30pm with staff to assist people in-person and remotely. The main phone number and email address for most efficient routing of calls and messages are 413-782-1317 and Residencelife@wne.edu.  Calls and messages will be forwarded and returned as quickly as possible. A staff directory can also be found on the Residence Life website. Public Safety, is available 24/7 at 413-782-1411 (for emergencies) and 413-782-1207 (for non-emergencies).

Returning Student Room Selection for Fall 2020 is scheduled to begin Wednesday, April 8 with rising seniors. Information about the process including dates and times for rising juniors and sophomores can be found on the room selection website.  Due to hardships caused by COVID-19, exceptions will be made to waive housing deposits so all students who are interested or required to live in University housing can fully participate in the process. Watch University Posts, Kodiak classrooms and email for more information, or call or email Residence Life if you have questions.

Wherever you are, Residence Life hopes you feel at home, healthy and safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
