Is there a housing requirement for JWU Charlotte students? Yes. All new students are required to live on campus during their first two years of enrollment at the Charlotte Campus. Exemption categories include transfer students, international students, students who are married/single parents, students 21 and over, and students who live with an adult relative within 50 miles of the campus.
Are there residence halls that are reserved for first year students only? First-year students comprise the majority of our traditional residence hall space (Cedar Hall North & South). Returning students comprise the majority of our on-campus apartment complex, City View Towers.
When are room assignments released to new incoming students? Housing applications and room selections are completed online. In early August, the university sends out official housing packets, which include students’ assignment and roommate information.
What does my student need to bring with him/her to live in the hall? For itemized lists of what (and what not) to bring, see Residential Life.
Are the residence halls equipped with internet connections? Cable? Yes, the rooms are equipped with the jacks for internet, as well as a cable connection; however, all materials needed to use these services will need to be provided by the student.
How will my student reserve his/her room and roommates as a returning student? Returning students who desire to live on campus have an opportunity to apply for a room and specify a roommate choice during the winter term. Information regarding this process will be posted on campus and emailed to their student email account. A deposit is required to reserve a space for the upcoming year.
