Campus Life Residence Hall Environment
CWU residence halls are like our classrooms—small and personable—allowing you to meet and know most of the people living in them.
If you are single and a first-year student enrolled in seven college credits or more, under the age of 20, and not planning to live locally with your parents or certain relatives, you must live in a CWU residence hall for one academic year regardless of the number of college credits you have earned (WAC 106-156-010 and WAC 106-156-011).
The dynamics of each residence hall are unique, and the people who live in them help make CWU a diverse and vibrant community. Programs offered within each residence hall are fun and entertaining. In the past, group activities have included floating the Yakima River, ice-skating, bowling, inner tubing, horseback riding, intramural sports, game nights, Karaoke, and attending stage productions and professional sporting events. Residence halls also organize cooperative events, giving students the opportunity to meet new people and have new experiences. CWU considers residence hall living one of the most valuable learning experiences of a student’s educational career. Programming also addresses student development and academic enhancement. Effective programming can positively impact a student’s university experience. For this to happen, our efforts are intentional and reflect variety, balance, and flexibility.
Running Start students, regardless of class standing, are also required to live on campus for one year. Students requesting an exception to the policies must apply for an exception through University Housing and New Student Programs, located in Button Hall in advance of the quarter.
Questions? For more information about on-campus housing, call 509-963-1831 or toll free 888-CWU-HOME (888-298-4663), e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to cwu.edu/housing.
CWU’s residence halls offer a variety of attractive and complete housing and dining packages including traditional, renovated, and new residence halls. The residence halls house between 35 and 476 occupants and include furniture, microfridges, expanded FM/TV cable services including Showtime®, Internet hook-up, basic telephone services, utilities, and coin-operated laundry facilities. In addition, many halls have their own pool table, piano, pingpong table, and TV lounges. All residence halls and university buildings are smoke-free.
Residence Hall Staff Our well-trained, supportive, and understanding residence hall staff is part of the team working to create a comfortable living and learning environment. Many professional and paraprofessional staff members combine their efforts to meet this commitment. Our staff includes residence hall coordinators who are full-time professional staff. In addition, our paraprofessional full-time student staff includes residence hall managers, resident assistants, and community programmers. Hall staff members facilitate the development of the community in the residence halls and serve as a resource for residents. All professional and undergraduate staff participate in an extensive two-week fall training and ongoing training throughout the year.
Residence Hall Contract Information Residence Hall Assignment The room and board contract is contingent upon the applicantâ€™s academic admission to Central Washington University and maintenance of enrolled status with a minimum of seven quarter hours. Current students are given priority for room and board choices. At the beginning of spring quarter, new students will have the opportunity to choose their residence hall rooms for fall quarter. Prior to choosing your room, it is required that the signed contract and deposit be received at CWU. Students that have submitted the contract and deposit prior to spring quarter will be notified of the opportunity first. As contracts and deposits are received during spring quarter, students will be notified of this opportunity. Notification of your opportunity will be sent on your CWU email account. It is important that you activate your Safari account and that you check your CWU email account regularly and frequently. If you do not choose your room or your contract and deposit are received after June 1, assignments will be made by the computer, with priority given to roommate request, then to room type, and finally to area. Housing is guaranteed for new students who return their paperwork and pay the deposit before June 1. After June 1, students submitting their room and board contract and fees will be assigned a room on a space-available basis. If you must terminate your contract prior to the beginning of the term, refer to section 15D of the terms and conditions of the room and board contract for nonrefundable cancellation fees. Approximately one to two months before fall quarter begins, students will receive their residence hall assignment letters with the payment schedule for the upcoming quarter. For winter and spring quarters, this information is sent a couple of weeks prior to the beginning of the quarter. The $200 housing deposit will be kept on the studentâ€™s account until the student no longer lives on campus.
Procedure for Requesting a Roommate Sharing a room provides the opportunity for developing new friendships. Students occupying a double or triple occupancy room and paying the corresponding rate may choose a roommate or be assigned roommates. If you wish to room with a friend(s), all roommates should send their deposits and room and board contract forms in the same package. List each other as roommates and write each otherâ€™s student identification numbers in the spaces provided on the application. You may request a roommate when choosing your room electronically; however, the roommate must have a deposit and contract at CWU in order for the roommate to agree to the request. Be sure all roommates are in agreement with the program and hall preferences so that if you do not choose your room on line, we are still able to assign you together. Students requesting roommates must have their requests submitted by June 1. If you do not have a roommate preference, CWU will assign a roommate(s) based on application information, program registration, and deposit. Many of our students come from diverse international communities and provide an excellent opportunity for an especially rewarding roommate experience. If this possibility is desirable to you, be sure to indicate the international roommate option on the room and board contract under roommate preference. CWU attempts to honor all requests as space permits in the hall and program of your choice. However, we are unable to guarantee a particular type of roommate or residence hall.
Contract The academic-year contract offers room and board for the entire academic year and your commitment is for the full term of the contract. Exceptions include participation in an approved off-campus academic program such as student teaching or an internship. If you terminate an academic contract during the academic year, you are subject to liquidating charges and fees in accordance with section #15B of the room and board contract. First-year students, including Running Start students, are required to live on campus for one academic year and to have a meal plan.
Living Learning Communities

First-year and returning students enjoy living in an LLC because they live with students with similar interests and common academic pursuits. It provides them with opportunities to live, learn, and grow together in an environment where faculty and residence hall staff collaborates to create an environment supportive of students’ academic pursuits.
Each Living Learning Community will hold monthly advisory stakeholder meetings made up of faculty, staff, and students living in the community. These stakeholders create future curriculum, market the events of the program, and assess educational outcomes and goals of the program.
Why do students get involved?
LLC Advisory Stakeholder Meetings
Students with common academic interests live together in the same residence hall and develop personal and academic relationships with other students and faculty from a field of study. Students participate in out of classroom enrichment activities that support their academic pursuits. As noted below, some LLCs are connected to specific courses that students take together. Active participation is required to live in an LLC.
National research has shown that students living in CWU’s LLCs: • Engage more in class and have better academic performance • Have a greater sense of collegiality • Are more engaged with their education and personal development • Have increased intercultural experiences • Have greater exposure to positive social environments • Are more connected to the University and resources
Here at Central Washington University being part of a community is about making connections with others who have common interests. Community is about getting involved and contributing to something larger than yourself. Living Learning Communities (LLCs) at Central Washington University bridge students’ academic interests and goals with their residence hall living experience.
Do students receive additional benefits from living in a LLC?

LLC programs maximize co-curricular resources.

CWU campus housing options include 19 unique residence halls and 12 living learning and theme communities. Theme Communities
Theme communities are not connected to a specific academic discipline, but allow students the opportunity to live and learn with students who share common interests. As with Living Learning Communities, Theme Communities allow students to build relationships with other students and faculty and staff who share their interests. Theme Communities differ from Living Learning Communities in that the Theme Communities are primarily focused on shared interest rather than a specific area of academic study.
Residence Hall Association (RHA) The Residence Hall Association is a student-elected body that serves as a liaison between students living in residence halls and the university administration. This student organization is an on-campus advocacy group that supports resident issues and concerns, promotes positive change, and offers a variety of educational, community service, and social activities.

1 — Athletic (XL) 2 — Large 3 — Medium 4 — Small 5 — Liberty Plan (for Kennedy residents only)
Your payment on a meal plan goes toward two things: daily meals and Dining Services’ operational costs. Once you’ve paid for a plan, 65 percent of that payment goes toward operational costs, which include student and staff salaries, utilities, supplies, repairs, debt service, and capital expenses. The remaining 35 percent goes on your Connection Card each quarter for food purchases. Students do not pay Washington State’s 8 percent sales tax at the register. The Liberty Plan (Plan 5), has an initial minimum amount of $275. This plan is available only for Kennedy Hall residents, does not pre-pay into the 65 percent overhead, and therefore, Liberty Plan holders pay regular retail prices at all dining locations and convenience stores, minus the 8 percent Washington State sales tax.

Expulsion or Salary Deduction: Failure to satisfy any financial obligations incurred in accordance with the terms and conditions of this contract may (together with all attorneyâ€™s fees and other costs and charges necessary for the collection of any amount not paid when due) result in action by the University to withhold admission to or registration with the University, the conferring of degrees and issuance of transcripts or grade reports, pursuant to WAC 106-124-010 and WAC 106-124-011, and in the case
of employees of the University, the deduction of such financial obligation from wages pursuant to the salary deduction policy of the institution. 19.

The CWU Board of Trustees approves housing rates spring quarter for the following academic year. The payment schedule detailing housing and dining charges will be sent with the room assignments. Send all payments to: CWU Cashiers Office, 400 East University Way, Ellensburg, WA 98926-7490. On each check or with each payment, indicate the student’s name and student’s identification number.
Failure to bring an account up-to-date within 10 working days after the second late-fee assessment may result in cancellation of meal privileges and eviction. If eviction proceedings are necessary due to non-payment of fees, an eviction administrative fee of $50 will also be assessed. A late charge of 1 percent will be assessed 30 days after due date.
21. Deferments for Scholarships, Loans and/or Grants: When payment of the residence hall room and board charges or fees is to be made from monies the applicant receives from grants, loans or scholarships, such sums are due upon receipt by the Student of such grants, loans and/or scholarships. 22. Consolidation Rooms: When space is available, University Housing may offer the Students an option for reduced occupancy in the room or suite. There is an additional charge for Students who live in rooms which are not occupied to capacity but wish to retain the reduced occupancy to give the remaining resident(s) additional space. The reduced occupancy option may include: super-single rooms, triple occupancy room used as a double or single occupancy room, three-person suite used as a double occupancy suite, and a two- or three-person suite used as a singleoccupancy suite. If a vacancy exists in your room/suite and the consolidation option is offered, you may choose one of the following options: Option 1. Stay in your current room without a roommate and pay the appropriate reduced-occupancy rates. Option 2. Find a person in a similar situation and become roommates upon approval from University Housing and New Student Programs. University Housing can also help you find a roommate. Option 3. If you are unable to find a roommate and you don’t want Option 1, you may request that you maintain the multiple occupancy rate and welcome a new roommate if
the University assigns one. This option needs to be approved by the University; contact University Housing. University Housing reserves the right to consolidate individuals in multiple-occupancy rooms. Options 2 and 3 must be completed by the 15th day of the quarter or within 15 days of your roommate’s departure in order to avoid automatic implementation of Option 1, retroactive to the date your roommate departed or to the beginning of the term—whichever is appropriate. 23. 12-month and Quarterly Contract Rates: 12-month contract rate is the actual cost for normal, applicable summer and academic contract provisions, plus $300 for residence hall occupancy for the time between the end of spring and summer contracts and fall contract initiation. Three hundred dollars is to be paid as part of the summer contract fee. All the terms and conditions specific for summer and academic year occupancy remain in effect. Students interested in quarterly contracts must contact University Housing and New Student Programs. 24. Changing Rooms: Room Transfer Day occurs on the third Thursday of the quarter. There are no room transfers permitted prior to Transfer Day without written approval from University Housing. On Transfer Day, requests for all transfers are made at University Housing on a first-come, first-serve basis. If your request cannot be accommodated, your name will be placed on a waiting list. If you wish to transfer after Transfer Day, obtain a Transfer Request Form and approval from your residence hall coordinator of the current residence hall. After proper signatures are obtained, your request is sent to University Housing. We will try to accommodate your request, however, we can make no guarantee. At your request, you will be placed on a waiting list. Students are required to move within 48 hours from the time of approval. Failure to move will result in charges for both rooms. Students who change rooms without proper authorization from University Housing will be charged a $100 penalty and may be required to move back to original assignment. 25. Meal Plans: All students living in the residence halls are required to have a meal plan. The meal plans are pre-paid dining debit accounts that residents use to purchase their meals, food, and sundry needs at all campus dining locations and convenience stores. The cost of each meal plan includes pre-paid dining debit dollars, which are added to the account at the beginning of each quarter. The four dining debit plans are:
Plan Plan 1 – Athletic (XL) Plan 2 – Large Plan 3 – Medium Plan 4 – Small Plan 5 – Liberty Plan (for Kennedy Hall residents)
For further information regarding the meal plans, please visit our website, cwu.edu/dining.

A meal plan must be purchased every quarter. Money that remains in a student’s pre-paid dining debit account at the end of either fall or winter quarter will be rolled over and added to the meal plan pre-paid dining debit balance selected for the next quarter. At the end of the academic year (spring quarter), money that remains in the account is not refunded and is forfeited. Dining Services is closed on holidays. Exemptions to the meal plan requirement may only be for verifiable medical reasons.
