Housing and Residential Life
Last Updated: Wednesday, July 29, 2020 9:25 AM
The University has substantially decreased the number of students who can live in our residence halls. We will do our best to provide housing for those students who meet one or more of the criteria; however, eligibility under the criteria does not guarantee on-campus housing, and changing circumstances may require additional restrictions. Read more here.
Apply for Housing
You can apply for a Residence Hall room, a Single Student Apartment (shared 2, 3, & 4 bedroom apartments) or for Family and Graduate Apartments by choosing the correct application at the right.
Our online applications are more than an application! At anytime you can login and manage your current contract, view your current room/apartment assignment, view your application status, find roommates and more!
Unsure of the type of housing you want?
When you are ready to apply, update or view an offer; select your application choice from the list at the right.
Reapplying to Live in the Residence Halls?
If you are a current resident planning to live in the residence halls next year, be sure to check your WSU email for important information about the priority process. A quick overview of the room reapplication process is provided here, but please be sure to be in communication with the RED of the hall you’re interested in calling home next year prior to the end of Spring semester.
Most new students do not have a roommate chosen, so assignments are provided in the Residence Halls. The Housing and Dining Application asks students to answer questions that will help with assignment of both hall and roommates. To have priority to room together, students must request each other as roommates prior to May 1st.
When requesting a roommate, your Residence Hall Housing Application should be completed requesting the same priorities in hall choices; if students select different halls, or answer the application questions on smoking and drinking differently, roommate requests may be blocked by our assignment program.
Students looking for a roommate for our Single Student Apartments can find a roommate through the Roommate Finder as well!
Whether you are living in a Residence Hall or an Apartment, our Roommate Finder application can help you find a roommate who shares your living preferences. Click the button to give it a try!
Although we try to honor all mutual roommate requests, space does not permit us to fill all of them. Assignments are made in application date order, so we encourage students who wish to be roommates to apply at the same time.
