The College seeks to create an environment conducive to intellectual discourse both inside and outside the classroom to provide students with an outstanding liberal arts education. Living on a residential campus provides students with many opportunities to get involved in and develop the social and critical thinking skills necessary to become vital members of the College community and contributing citizens following graduation.   In keeping with this mission as a four-year residential college, W&J requires all students to live on campus, with the exceptions being married students and students living with parents or guardians within a commuting distance determined by the College. 

All students are required to pay a non-refundable advance deposit of $300 at the time of pre-registration for the first session of each new College year. This amount is credited to the student's account for the Fall Term.  All students are required to sign a Housing Contract and Lease Agreement following the selection/placement in housing.  *Housing Contracts are in effect for the entire academic year.  *Selecting or occupying a room constitutes a binding residence agreement.  Unless residing at the home of his or her parent(s)/guardian(s), active members of fraternities and sororities are required to live in his or her respective chapter house, so long as there is space available in that house. 

Listed within this section are policies and procedures to assist in creating safe and secure communities.
