Housing and Residential Life

Payments and Billing


NO INVOICES OR STATEMENTS WILL BE MAILED. Payments are due as scheduled without further demand or notice. Account balances, transactions and due dates can be viewed in myWSU.

Residents (either Residence Hall or Apartment) who have a past due account will receive an electronic "Notice of Overdue Account." This will be found in myWSU. Overdue accounts are subject to a late fee.

Special Note to WSU Parents

As a parent of a first time student, you may have previously been given access to your student’s records without needing Third Party Access (TPA) from your student.  Under FERPA guidelines starting August 23th, the first day of classes, TPA will be required before  Housing & Dining Financial Services is able to share any detailed information regarding your student’s account. TPA is granted by students accessing their account and going to >Main Menu> Self Service> Third Party Access.


This video provides step by step video instructions for granting TPA.


Although many students simply share their access with parents, please note that without TPA detailed financial information cannot be shared or discussed without the student present.
