YOU HAVE APPLIED FOR HOUSING – NOW WHAT?

 

 

SPRING 2020

January

After you receive your confirmation email, we will start our “conversation” with you by getting you information and links for My College Roomie – our optional program to search for and connect with your perfect roommate(s)!

(University Housing will communicate throughout the summer and INTO THE ACADEMIC YEAR with you via your student WOU email address and  your Housing Overview. Get in the habit NOW of checking both for important information that will impact your housing.)

March / April

Get Ready to CHOOSE YOUR ROOM! (And pull in your chosen roommate(s)!) Follow directions in this important email to make your selection process a seamless one!

Spring eMail

May marks the continuation of the “conversation” that we started with all of our students who have completed the housing application process.

Look for this important Spring Email with information to access online, to be delivered to your WOU email by late May.

May through July

Our new incoming students will continue their selection process during this time period. DEADLINES OF NOTE during this time period:

  • July 27: 5:00 pm DEADLINE to apply and still have the opportunity to choose your room. (Students who apply after this time will be placed by housing staff).
  • July 31: 5:00 pm DEADLINE. ALL online selections and changes to assignments/roommates ends.

Late July

    HOUSING CONTRACTS & EMERGENCY INFORMATION AUTHORIZATION FORMS (EIAF) ARE RELEASED
tentatively DUE 5:00 PM, AUGUST 14, 2020 –

You will need to electronically submit
BOTH your contract & EIAF the by the deadline to hold your
housing reservation for the coming term.

NOTE: 

University Housing will also be checking for registration for the coming term. Students who are not registered for classes (minimum 8 credit hours for undergrads and 6 credit hours for graduate students) must either register or be subject to cancellation of housing reservation and loss of placement. 

by late August

Look for this email to explain where all students can access online information regarding hall placement, and check on their assigned roommate(s) and/or where to look to see if any changes have been made to your housing assignment or to who your roommate(s) will be. It also serves as a good reminder to check your student WOU email address.

In addition a checklist of items to bring to campus will be posted to help as preparations begin in earnest to arrive on campus in the fall.

OF NOTE:  Room, Board and Meal Plan charges will be posted to your student accounts in late August – BUT ARE NOT DUE – until after the term begins – See the Academic Calendar for details.

 – IMPORTANT NOTES –

  • Housing Contracts & Emergency Information Authorization Forms released in late July must be read, signed, dated and electronically submitted by 5:00 p.m. Friday, August 9th (currently a tentative date) to hold your housing reservation.
