Fall 2018 Petitions to be Released

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 housing@wfu.edu 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.

If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact us at housing@wfu.edu or call 336-758-5185.
