WHAT’S IT LIKE TO LIVE ON CAMPUS?

Sure, you can live anywhere in Laramie while you’re attending WyoTech—but why miss out on the camaraderie and convenience of living right on campus?

Benefits of our affordable, apartment-style housing include:

  • Walking distance to all your classes and shops
  • Leases that match the length of your enrollment at WyoTech
  • Cable, internet, and all utilities (heat, water, sewer, garbage, and general maintenance) included with rent
  • Designated, onsite student resident assistant (RA) who can relay maintenance requests, provide educational assistance, direct residents to proper assistance resources, and organize activities and events

Our apartments are organized as multi-resident suites, which means that both private and double-occupancy bedrooms share a common kitchen, living room, and bathroom.

(Note: There are no units in campus-managed housing where students will have their own apartment. While single-occupancy bedrooms do offer more privacy within an apartment, there will still be multiple students per apartment unit.)

WHAT DO PEOPLE DO FOR FUN IN LARAMIE?

Believe it or not, our small town offers more opportunities for adventure than you’d expect. For example, right in town or less than a 30-minute drive away, there’s:

  • 4-wheeling
  • Camping
  • Downtown farmers market
  • Fishing
  • Game days at the University of Wyoming (basketball, football, volleyball, wrestling, rodeo, etc.)
  • Hiking
  • Motorcycle riding
  • Mountain biking
  • Movie theaters
  • Rock climbing
  • Shopping
  • Skiing
  • Snowmobiling
  • Snowshoeing
  • Snowboarding

Snowy Range MountainsPlus, you’re not too far from Medicine Bow National Forest, Vedauwoo Recreation Area, or Snowy Range ski area.


FAQ ABOUT LIVING ON CAMPUS

I want to live on campus! What do I need to do?

Once you’re enrolled at WyoTech, your Admissions Representative will email you a DocuSign form titled “WyoTech Housing Application.” Fill out the form, and follow the prompts to pay your required $350 damage deposit. Once you’ve submitted both the form and your damage deposit, you’ll have a room saved for you in our housing.

What’s the difference between single- and double-occupancy bedrooms?

All apartments in our campus housing are designed as multi-resident suites. A single-occupancy bedroom means you share the apartment with 3 other roommates but have a private bedroom; a double-occupancy bedroom means you share the apartment with 3 other roommates, as well as share your bedroom with 1 more roommate.

Am I guaranteed my request for a private bedroom?

All requests for preferred roommates and unit types are filled on a first-come first-serve basis… so the sooner you have your housing application and deposit turned in, the better!

Can I have an apartment all to myself?

Sorry, but no; we don’t currently offer private apartments.

When can I move into my apartment?

Typically, move-in day is the same day as registration. Since we have classes starting and graduating every quarter, we use the few days in between to clean the rooms and make any repairs prior to new students moving in.

Can I hang things on the walls?

Yes, it’s okay to hang appropriate (not obscene) items within your apartment and bedrooms. Please use command strips or poster putty; if you use nails, tacks or screws, you’ll be charged for repairs and paint when you move out.

Is there a way to plug my vehicle in during the winter?

Sorry, but no. Electrical outlets aren’t available for use outside of campus housing, and it’s against the fire safety code to run an extension cord across walking paths, out of windows or doors, etc.

Can I have more than one vehicle at WyoTech?

Sorry, but no. Only one vehicle may be registered per student, and it must have current license tags, be operable and street legal, and display a WyoTech parking permit. If you have an additional vehicle (project car, motorcycle, snowmobile, etc.), you’ll need to make arrangements on your own to store it in a different location.

I’m over 21; can I have alcohol in my room?

No; alcohol and alcohol containers are NOT permitted on or around campus or housing property, regardless of age.

What’s the policy on guests?

One (1) guest of the same gender can stay with you for up to 3 days with roommate and Housing Manager approval. (Ask your Resident Assistant about the approval process.) Any guests of the opposite gender must leave the WyoTech housing premises by 11 p.m., and no guests of the opposite gender under the age of 18 are allowed on WyoTech housing property at all.

What’s included in my rent?

All utilities, including gas, electric, water, and garbage, along with cable TV and internet. You’re welcome to upgrade your TV package and/or internet at your own cost; please see your Resident Assistant for details.

What if I have a question or need assistance outside of business hours?

Each area has at least one live-in Resident Assistant on call outside of normal business hours. We’ll provide you with their contact information on move-in day!

Is there on-site laundry?

Yes! We have a laundry room in every building, on every floor. You can pay with a credit card or use the app, through which your family can load money to your account from home.

I don’t have a car; how do I get to school?

Campus housing is located directly across the parking lot from the campus, so you won’t need a vehicle to get to/from school. Off campus, however, Laramie has very limited public transportation, so you’ll likely need to rely on ride sharing to get where you need to go.

What’s my address?

You’ll get your exact mailing address and mailbox number on registration day. Each student will have their own mailbox number for letters and packages, so your address will look like this:

John or Jane Doe
2075 Venture Dr. #123
Laramie, WY 82070

Am I allowed to bring my rifle/pistol with me?

Weapons are not permitted on or around campus and housing property. Violating this policy could lead to eviction and/or suspension from school.

What happens if I’m caught with drugs?

WyoTech has a zero-tolerance drug policy. If you’re found in possession or under the influence of illegal substance, you’ll be subject to immediate eviction from housing and possible suspension from school, as well as any applicable penalties from local law enforcement.

Can housing staff enter my apartment?

WyoTech respects your privacy, so unless there is reasonable cause for an unscheduled inspection, housing staff will only enter your apartment during announced, scheduled room inspections. We do these weekly to check for any maintenance items, as well as ensure compliance with housing regulations and local, state and federal laws.

What if I want to change apartments within housing?

It’s allowed, as long as it’s not during the first week or the last week of a quarter. You’ll need to go through the housing office to make all the necessary arrangements.
