Academic Year - The academic year contract provides housing August 2018 to May 2019 (Fall and Spring terms). Students with an Academic Year contract are eligible to live in Valley Terraces, Half Dome, and Heritage apartments. 

Year-Round - New for 2018, the Year-Round contract provides housing June 2018 to May 2019 (Summer, Fall and Spring terms).

Housing Contract, Rates & Other Resources

Please take a moment to review the Housing & Residence Life Contract. If offered a housing assignment for 2018-2019 you will be required to sign this contract to receive your housing assignment. 

In preparation for the housing application renewal period, explore your housing options and get familiar with the process.  Decide where you want to live next year, and with whom do you want to live with?  Do you favor a particular building, room, or Heritage apartments; or would you rather move off campus and sign a lease with some friends in the Bellevue neighborhood?  Take some time to map out a plan, and involve a parent or family member in your decision making. 

Housing Application Process

Step 1 - Submit Application

The first step is to complete your housing application on the Housing Portal. The application will open at 9:00 am on Thursday, March 1st. 

Access Housing Portal

During the intial application, you will do the following:

  1. Verify personal information
  2. List room preferences
  3. List roommate matching preferences
  4. Select special housing options or learning communities

Step 2 - Housing Offer & Contract

Your application will be reviewed. If space is available, you will receive a housing offer and instructions on next steps. If we are not able to offer a space, you will be placed on a waitlist. 

Once you receive your housing offer, you will need to sign the housing contract and pay/defer the reservation fee. This will secure your place in housing for the coming term. You may select a room prior to signing your contract but if you do not select a room prior to the May 31st deadline you could forfit your room selection. You will not receive your official assignment until your contract is signed. 

Contract Signing Steps (View Instructions)

  1. Review and sign the contract
  2. Review and sign the pestiside agreement
  3. Pay the $300 reservation fee or request a deferment to August
  4. Sign up for or opt-out of renter's insurance

Step 3 - Roommate Groups

Once you receive a housing offer, you may return to the Housing Portal and create or join a Roommate Group. Roommate Groups are students who agree to live together. These groups will be used in the room selection process and for making assignments of anyone who does not select a room. 

Using this tool, you can either find compatable roomates and form a new group or you may search and request to join an existing group. Groups can also request to add you to their groups. 

Step 4 - Room Selection

Room Selection will take place between May 1 and May 31. During this time, you will be able to select a room/suite/apartment for you and those in your roommate group. 

To help manage system overload, each person will be assigned a room selection timeslot and sent their timeslot prior to May 1. You will not be able to access room selection until your timeslot time. Additional rooms will be made available for each timeslot block. 

At your room selection time, visit the Housing Portal and select from available rooms. When you select a room, you will be able to place other members of your roommate group into spaces in the room/suite/apartment. Only one person in a roommate group needs to complete this process. 

You may make changes to your room selection, as space permits, until May 31st.

Housing Cancellation

If you no longer wish to to live on campus for the selected terms, you must submit a Housing Cancellation form on the Housing Portal

If you have signed your contract, a housing cancellation fee will apply as follows:

June 1st - August 17th $200
August 18th forward or failure to move in $300

If housing and meal charges were added to your account, they will be removed in 1-2 business days.
