Residence Hall Frequently Asked Questions
How do I apply for housing?
Once you have been accepted to WVU Tech and receive your MIX username and password, please go to MyHousing.wvu.edu
. You will be required to pay a $200 housing deposit to reserve your room. If you are unable to pay the deposit please contact the Student Life office at 304-929-1232 to ask about a waiver.
The housing application/contract is a legally binding contract committing you to live in on-campus housing for the entire academic year.
When are housing deposits due?
There is no deadline for the $200 housing deposit. However, assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is important to complete the application/contract early. You deposit is credited to your upcoming term's tuition and fees.
Will I get my deposit back if I do not attend WVU Tech?
If you are not planning on attending WVU Tech, we will refund the full $200 housing deposit if we receive written notification by July 1 (December 1 for Spring Only term). After this date, deposits are nonrefundable. Applications/contracts can be cancelled if you are not attending WVU Tech by notifying us via your MIX email account to TechStudentLife@mail.wvu.edu
. A staff member will follow up with an email when the contract cancellation has been processed.
