Looking for Spring Housing?

Visit the Spring Semester Housing webpage for the information you need.

First Year Student Housing

Please note that incoming first-year student(s) are required to either reside on campus or, if within 50 miles from campus, commute from their permanent home where they reside with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s). Those selecting on-campus living must fill out the 2021-2022 Online Housing and Dining Contract by June 15, 2021 (prior to orientation). Please note that students are contracted for housing and meal plans the full academic year. Wilkes University has a two-year residency requirement for all first-year and sophomore students.

Returning Student Housing Selection

Find all the information you need to choose your on-campus housing arrangements for the 2021-2022 academic year! All current first year students who are not commuting are required to live on campus for their second year at Wilkes, if these students do not participate in selection, they will be place manually after selection as concluded.

Transfer Student Housing

While Transfer Students are not required to live on campus, should you choose to join our residential community, we are more than excited to welcome you! Below are steps for completing your applications. Please note that all residential students are required to select a meal plan. Find out more about Dining Services on campus.

Summer Student Housing

For students taking classes in the pre-session immediately following Commencement, they will move into their summer assignment on a designated move-in day. After that, students will check in with the Residence Life Office, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., before their summer class begins to retrieve their key. 

Housing Exemptions & Early Releases

Students should choose this form if they are seeking to be exempt from Wilkes University's residency requirement. As a reminder all first and second year students are required to live on campus unless they are commuting from the home of their parent or legal guardian who lives within 50 miles of campus. (International and Transfer students are exempt from the Residency Requirement). You can visit the Wilkes University Undergraduate Student Handbook for questions about the Residency Requirement.
