Housing Selection for the coming year gets underway in July! 

  • Your first step in choosing a space for the coming year will be to find and match with the roommate of your choice. (If you want a roommate.) We expect that My College Roomie will send out invites on Monday, June 13 via your WOU email to access their system, create a profile and then find and match with your perfect roommate!
  • Next, students will access their Housing Overview page to see Housing Selection start days and times by 5 pm, on Friday, July 22. 
  • From there, starting Monday, July 25 we will open the Housing Selection process for you to choose your space!
  • Use the link below to access our detailed Selection Timeline

Our priority is and will be the safety of our residents. Please check back often as updates will be made as we assess the situation as it applies to our preparations for Fall term and the coming academic year.

Start dates and times will be released 5 pm, July 22 on your Housing Overview page. PLAN AHEAD so that you or the person in your group with the earliest start date/time can access the system asap after their start time rolls around. The sooner you login and choose, the less competition you will have for the space that you want!

Keep in mind for the coming year, we are tentatively planning on setting up most spaces for one person in one room. But this year, we also plan to offer additional limited double spaces in designated rooms available in specific halls. Barnum Hall* is currently set to only house two students in each of the suites there. Any student seeking a double room must confirm roommate choices on their Housing Reservation form or via My College Roomie to select these spaces. 

*Barnum Hall will be opened as occupancy demands. 

First-Year Students. See the information below for details regarding the First-Year Live-In Requirement here at WOU. 
Let’s start off by clarifying how we identify our First-Year residents. 

University Housing considers any student who attends Western Oregon University within one year of high school graduation to be a First-Year student. We are committed to a First-Year Live-In Requirement for this group of students, and for the most part these students will be living in Ackerman, Heritage, and  Landers Hall.

Housing Selection Questions

Chances are that if you are unsure of something, someone else is as well. With so many changes we have had to make this year in response to COVID-19, to our process, our room configurations and our timelines, questions are going to arise! Take a look at our FAQ page(s) and see if you can find the answers to your questions. If not, please feel free to contact University Housing – we are here to help in any way that we can!
