The summer application is open from April 1 through May 15. Be ready to choose a meal plan, building preference, intersession housing (if needed), take a roommate survey, request a specific roommate if you have one in mind, and accept the Summer Housing Agreement. No deposit is required; your current housing deposit ($200) will continue on file as your summer housing deposit.
Following the application period, information about picking up your personalized summer instructions will be posted in MyHousing. Logistics for your particular contract and the transition process from your current location to your summer location involve firm deadlines and can be complicated, so you will need to come in person to go over your information.
In late May you will be prompted (via your MyHousing status) to stop by Edens Hall to receive your instructions and room assignment. Failure to follow your instructions may involve extra housing charges.

Birnam Wood summer residents who have confirmed on-campus housing for 2017-18 are eligible to remain in Birnam Wood for the month between the end of summer session and the start of fall quarter. To request this option, select the all-summer contract when you apply for housing. Please note: If your summer assignment differs from your fall assignment, you must move to your fall assignment on the required move date. Plan ahead so that you are not out of town during your required move date range:
Spring quarter ends at 4 p.m. Friday, June 9, and summer housing begins 10 a.m. Sunday, June 18. Most students prefer to move out and go home for the week in between (known as intersession), but housing is available for those who need to stay.
Cancellations received after June 1 will result in forfeiture of your $200 housing deposit. Cancellations must be submitted in writing in person or by email to Housing@wwu.edu; please include your name, student ID, and a statement cancelling your housing reservation.
