Q: Do I have to stay on campus to attend WC?
A: On campus housing is not mandatory at Weatherford College. Spots are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Once we hit capacity (approx. 280), we will start a waiting list for anyone else wishing to reside in Coyote Village.

A: Office staff or RAs (Resident Assistants) are available to give a tour of the premises and the model room during office hours.

Friday / 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

A: The $250 deposit is required to guarantee a spot and is kept on file through the length of the contract. It will not be applied to the amount due for room/board charges. Deposits will be refunded in full if resident cancels the contract, in writing, before the first official move in day. All other deposits will be retained for administrative purposes.
Q: What is a Guarantor and do I have to have one?
A: A guarantor is like a co-signer; someone who will guarantee payment if you don’t pay. Guarantor information is required for every application regardless of your age. The Guaranty Agreement is defined in the Housing Contract/Lease Agreement.

Q: Is Wi-Fi available?
A: Wi-Fi is available in the community center and other buildings on campus. Wi-Fi access does not extend to the apartments, so they are hard-wired, which means the student is responsible for bringing an Ethernet cord for internet access. You may also bring a router to create your own Wi-Fi.
Q: How are roommates selected?
A: The application has a place to request specific roommates, if you have friends that are also attending WC. Please be aware that requested roommates must be mutual for placement. Other key factors in placement are included on the Resident Profile page of the application. Roommate assignments are completed right before school starts, in order to have maximum amount of time to ensure a quality matching process.
Q: When will I find out who my roommates are?
A: Due to cancelations and privacy, you will find out who your roommate is only when you move in. We do not give out the assignment of building, floor, room, or roommate names until you move in.
Q: Do I have to have a meal plan to stay at Coyote Village?
A: Yes, a meal plan is required. There are two meal plan options: 10 meals or 19 meals, and that’s meals per week. They do not roll over to the next week, so “use it or lose it.” Meal plans are not available in the summer.
Q: How long are the terms of the housing contract I’m signing?
A: A Fall-Spring contract, signed in the fall, is binding for the entire academic year (August – May). If we have openings for spring, the Fall/Spring contract is binding for the entire spring semester. Summer contract is binding for each session selected, not necessarily the entire summer.
Q: How is housing paid?
A: Students must be paid in full or on a payment plan, prior to moving in. We bill each semester separately, therefore, payment arrangements must be made for each semester. Of course housing can be paid in full with the Business Office, or even online. Other methods of payment include financial aid (grants/loans/scholarships) and an online payment plan. Either of those methods will need to be established each semester.
Q: Can financial aid cover my housing costs?
A: Financial aid can cover room/board charges, however, it must cover tuition, fees, and bookstore charges first.
Q: Are there specific policies regarding Coyote Village?
A: Yes, they can be found in the Community Living Guide.
Q: I have a criminal record. Can I stay at Coyote Village?
A: Anyone with a felony or assault charge is not allowed to live on campus. All misdemeanors are considered on a case by case basis. Please be forth coming on your application, as a background check is required before we can guarantee a room, so we will find out. After a preliminary check is run, if you feel the results are not accurate, the check will be run again and you may submit fingerprints for verification.
