Learn. Laugh. LIVE ON CAMPUS!

The Housing Renewal process is set up for our current residents to easily select the room and or apartment AND the roommate of their choice to live on-campus during the next academic year.
There are no applications to fill out, no fees involved*. Starting in the spring of the year, you will be invited to use the online Housing Renewal process to make your selections online for the coming academic year – before any other incoming students are invited to choose their space for next fall.


Living on-campus. It is close. It is convenient. It is SAFE. It is conducive to your success as a student and in building a network of friends and peers that will last a lifetime! See below for some details and dates regarding the process for this year.

Keep an eye on your WOU email in February. We will send you information, invitations and updates regarding the process. For basic information see: Housing Renewal
A link will be emailed to you by late-February to access our roommate matching program. Use it! Find and match up with your perfect roommate.
