The Full College Experience

Living on campus gives you the chance to be independent, while also becoming part of a special community. You'll have opportunities to socialize, meet new people, get involved with a variety of activities, form relationships and learn about other cultures.

CWC's campus is an intimate, accessible and safe place to live and learn. Attend "Casino Night," play ping pong or pool with students from other residence halls, learn to cook with your roommates, and develop long-lasting friendships with people from across Wyoming and around the world.

Benefits of Living on Campus

Living on campus means that you will be surrounded by fellow students, meaning that you will always have study and support groups available. You will also save on the time and costs of travel as you can easily walk to your classes, the food court, the library, campus activities, and more!

Students who live on campus have also been shown to have higher GPA’s and a higher likelihood of completing their degrees than those who live off-campus. Based off of CWC statistics from fall 2016, students living in housing were 3 times more likely to meet CWC’s standards and either re-enroll or graduate than non-housing students.

EAST and WEST APARTMENTS

The apartment complexes are great for students who want a little more personal space. They are also available for students with families and spouses seeking their own accommodations, while remaining extremely convenient to class.

The Apartments are designed as typical apartment complexes. With one and two bedroom apartments, there are three rates available: private, split-private (2 bedroom only), and roommate living. Every attempt is made to maximize occupancy by assigning roommate living first and private apartments are only assigned after all roommate options are explored.

One-bedroom apartments have a maximum of two single students. Two-bedroom apartments have a maximum of four single students, each responsible for their own rental payments.

Fill out your application request carefully to provide crucial information to assist with roommate assignment. You can always choose your own roommate if you know someone coming to school with you, but if you do not, and you request roommate living, one will be assigned based on your application information. 

If your roommate does not work out, CWC will work with you to provide an alternate assignment. Contact the Housing Manager for any information on roommate or room changes and they will work with you and your roommate to either resolve the issue or make necessary changes. We only ask that you work hard at resolving any conflicts first before using a roommate change request.

Also, while the complexes are co-ed, all room/apartment assignments are done single sex. No co-habitation is allowed unless married. 


 

Central Wyoming College has a variety of policies to address behavior. Read the Student Handbook for detailed policies.

Holiday (Break) Housing

CWC Housing facilities will remain open for Thanksgiving and Spring Break. However, facilities will close for Christmas break at noon on Saturday, December 16th and will remain closed until 8:00 a.m. on Monday, January 8th. Housing doors and keys will be deactivated during this time except for those who apply and who are approved to stay over the break. Break housing is primarily an option for international students, students who live a long distance away (making travel costs prohibitive), or students who find themselves in a position where "home" is not an option.

During most of Christmas break, the Food Court as well as college offices will be closed. Housing staff and Campus Services will be limited in number and availability. Those wishing to apply for break housing must understand that resources will be limited for them during this time. No overnight guests are allowed in break housing without prior approval of the Residential Life Manager, which must be granted before the start of the break. The Housing Office reserves the right to charge higher fines or levy more significant disciplinary action for any damage of property or breaches of policy committed while Housing facilities are closed, due to the limited number of staff available to resolve these issues.

Those applying to stay over the break are subject to a $25/week fee (or $75 for the entire break) which will be applied at the discretion of the Housing Office. The Housing Office reserves the right to deny a student's application to stay if the student is currently under disciplinary trouble or for any other reason deemed necessary by the Residential Life Manager and the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs.

To apply for break housing, please email the following information to housing@cwc.edu

Sex Offenders and Felons Policy

Central Wyoming College does not permit persons who are required to register as sex offenders or major offenders under the laws of any state or nation to reside in any college-owned or leased residence hall, apartment or other housing facility. Any person requesting to live in college housing must disclose any such registration requirement. Failure to disclose will result in involuntary removal from college housing and forfeiture of any deposit or fees paid for housing.  
 
The college reserves the right on a case-by-case basis to deny the request of any person to reside in college housing or to involuntarily remove any person already admitted to college housing due to:

  • the conviction of any felony or misdemeanor offense which, in the judgment of the college, indicates that the person who has been convicted of such an offense has the potential to disrupt the normal functioning of college housing, or otherwise negatively impact the residential community.
  • disciplinary infractions brought against the person by any other educational institution of which the College is made aware when such disciplinary infractions indicate a propensity for the person to engage in disruptive or dangerous activities, alcohol or drug possession, defiance of housing or other staff or any other reason considered, in the opinion of the college to negatively impact the residential community.

The decision of whether or not to deny the request for College housing or remove any person already admitted to College housing and the seriousness of the felony or misdemeanor offense or educational institution disciplinary infraction upon which such decision is based is at the sole discretion of the College and is not subject to appeal.
