WWC Seasonal Storage Expectations

  • Only things needed throughout the semester permitted. If needed less than twice a year, use long term storage in Prentis loft.
  • Everything must be clearly labeled with resident name.
  • All items should be in closed containers - no plastic bags, grocery bags, etc.
  • No furniture or empty boxes permitted. Those must go to long term storage. There is no storage of college-issued furniture at any time in any storage room.
  • We ask that each resident keep no more than 6 items in this room at any time.
  • All belongings must be removed from storage (& every other community spaces) at the time of your departure from the college.
  • Seasonal storage is unlocked at all times so that any resident can access their belongings as needed - please do not store precious items in this space.

  • The room should be kept tidy and orderly at all times.
  • Use of any storage space is at the resident's own risk. The College is not responsible for any loss or damage.

WWC Kitchen Expectations

  • Cabinet, drawer, shelving space is divided between all assignable rooms on the floor and labeled accordingly. The College-issued room number labels must remain in place at all times – they should never be removed or altered.
  • If a particular room is unoccupied, the floor members can decide how that space will be used but if someone moves into the room, that space must be cleared immediately.
  • It is at each floor members’ discretion how they use their allocated space or if they want to share or gift any of their unused allocated cabinet space to another floor member.
  • In Prentis: The shelving unit with plastic bins is College-issued. Each shelf & bin is labeled by room and meant for use as cabinet overflow. One shelf is assigned to an entire room with no bin present to offset the limited cabinet shelving.
  • Unoccupied room bins can be divvied up in the same manner as described above but must be emptied immediately upon arrival of a new community member.
  • The bins are College property and must remain in the space. Missing or damaged bins will be treated the same as other college property and are the responsibility of the assigned resident.
  • Fridges should be assigned during first floor meetings of the semester with the same premise as above. Each resident is assigned equal space regardless of how they use it.
  • All personal belongings must be kept in assigned cabinets and fridge/freezer space.
  • No personal belongings should be accumulated/stored on the countertops. Counter space is for the use of all residents in food prep/serving; accumulation of pantry items on the counter prevents usage by other floor members.
  • Residents should be aware of their allotted space when shopping and not buy more than they can reasonably store. Overflow from the allotted cabinet/bin space must be kept in the resident’s room. It is up to the resident to determine how they prefer to use their allotted cabinet space (i.e. for food, cookware, serveware, etc.).
  • Each resident is permitted to keep one small appliance (within Blue Book/ResLife policies) on the counter at all times. The appliance must be kept in clean, working order, and must be kept in its most contained state against the back wall of the counter (so as to maintain as much useable counter space as possible). All other appliances must be kept in the resident’s allotted cabinet/shelf space or in the resident’s room. If this becomes too cluttered for a floor, all residents will be asked to remove all personal appliances from the countertops.
  • No additional furniture can be brought into the space – this includes storage drawers, storage cabinets, shelving, kids tables, etc. The accumulation of these items poses fire and egress issues as well as equitable usage dilemmas for community members. If you want these items, they must be kept in your room.
  • Each resident must put away their belongings at minimum each night before retiring. This includes countertops, stove/microwave, sink, floor, & laundry areas. This permits housekeeping to clean properly.
  • Windows should be kept closed when the A/C or heat is running.

  • No food or drink permitted at any time.
  • The College-issued equipment and furniture is meant for the use of WWC students. Academic work takes precedence over personal work.

  • The community shares responsibility for the College-provided equipment & spaces. Misuse of the room may result in community fines and/or loss of the space.
