The following message was sent to all students on February 2, 2018, from the Assignments team in the Office of Residence Life and Housing:
Wake Forest University has a six semester on-campus requirement before a student is eligible to live off campus. If you are in need of living off-campus, prior to completing your six semesters of on-campus housing, you will need to complete the Residence Life and Housing Petition to be Released form. The Petition to be Released form can be found through WIN>Virtual Campus>Residence Life and Housing>Housing Application beginning February 5, 2018.
All petitions must be submitted by February 16, 2018. Cancellation requests of your petition must be sent to email@example.com by February 22, 2018. Decision letters will be emailed to you by the end of the day on February 23, 2018. Do not sign a lease off campus until you have received a decision regarding your petition in writing from the Office of Residence Life and Housing.
Rising seniors, who will have completed their six semesters of on-campus housing at the end of Spring 2018 do not need to submit a petition. The Petition to be Released form is only for those students who are not eligible to live off-campus for Fall 2018.
