WCJC provides dormitory accommodations only at the main campus in Wharton. Dorm rooms are only available during the fall and spring semesters. Frankie Hall (men's dorm) and Mullins Hall (women's dorm) are both located on campus. Brooking Hall (women's dorm) is located two blocks from the main campus. To be eligible to live in the dorm, a student must enroll in and maintain a minimum of 12 semester hours at WCJC.
All dorms are traditional-style, two-person rooms designed for students only. WCJC does not provide accommodations for married couples or children. All students living in the dorms must be on the campus cafeteria meal plan. The cafeteria provides three meals per day Monday thru Friday, two meals on Saturday, and one meal on Sunday. The cafeteria offers one meal plan only; credit is not given for missed meals because of dormitory absence, school events, etc.
Each dormitory provides a live-in dorm supervisor and security is maintained 24 hours a day. Each dorm student is provided a twin bed, chest-of-drawers, closet, desk and chair. Self-service laundry facilities are provided within all dorm buildings; washers and dryers are free of charge, but students must provide their own cleaning products. Each room will also have access to cable television and wireless internet.
Frankie Hall is a two-story building on campus that provides housing accommodations for 76 men. Women are not allowed in Frankie Hall except in the main entrance lobby. The downstairs lobby and an upstairs lounge both provide a VCR and satellite television service. All rooms are suite-style, where two rooms share a middle bathroom.
Mullins Hall is a two-story building on campus that provides housing accommodations for 52 women. Men are not allowed in Mullins Hall except in the main entrance lobby, which provides a VCR and satellite television service. Restroom facilities are located at the end of each hallway.
Brooking Hall is a two-story building located two blocks from campus that provides housing accommodations for 30 women. Men are not allowed in Brooking Hall except in the main entrance lobby. The downstairs lobby and an upstairs lounge provide a VCR and satellite television service. Suite-style rooms are located only on the second floor; there are no dorm rooms on the lower level. Each room offers a small balcony.
To reserve a room, the student must fill out an application and submit it to the Housing Office, along with a $200.00 deposit. The student must also include a Release of Background Information form along with the $15 fee. Students may request a refund of their room deposits if they decide not to attend WCJC. To cancel a residence hall reservation and contract, and be eligible for a refund of the deposit, a student must submit a request in writing to the Housing Office fifteen days prior to the start of classes. Failure to cancel a reservation as outlined above will result in the forfeiture of the entire room deposit. In the event the student's admission or enrollment is canceled for failure to meet the college's requirements for admission or re-admission, the full deposit and pre-paid room rent will be refunded or transferred to another semester at the direction of the student.

Students who reside in the dormitories must also pay the Board Plan. Room charges and the first payment for board must be made before entering the dormitory as a resident. Students who want to get on an installment plan for board must go to the business office at the Wharton campus and sign an installment contract.
Dormitory and cafeteria charges are subject to change without notice by action of the Board of Trustees.
The residence halls and the cafeteria will be closed during official college holidays as specified in the College Calendar. During these holidays, students must arrange for other housing and meals.
Students who vacate or are dismissed from the residence hall for any reason during the semester will not receive a refund on any room or board payment.
The $200.00 room deposit will serve as a combination reservation/damage/room clearance deposit. The deposit is not applied to housing rent. The deposit is not covered by any WCJC institutional scholarship. For non-returning residents, the deposit is refundable at the end of the semester upon written request of the student, when all monies owed and all provisions of the housing contract have been satisfied. Any assessments left unpaid at the time the student leaves WCJC will be deducted from the $200.00 deposit.
Students should consult the Residence Hall Handbook and the Student Handbook regarding dormitory regulations.
