Hello {NameFirst} {NameLast} ({ID1}):

You are receiving this email as an on-campus resident.

Spring Quarter Housing Options

We currently have three spring quarter options:

  1. Continue living on campus during spring quarter which officially begins on Monday, April 6 with the first day of online classes.

The delayed beginning for spring quarter means some changes - we will send you information about billing soon.

  1. Pack up all belongings, use self-checkout envelope to hand in keys and checkout before midnight on Sunday, April 12 to avoid any additional charges.
  2. If you are not staying on campus spring quarter and need assistance moving out of your residence hall after April 12, housing staff will follow up with you individually.

Survey Response: please respond to our survey by 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 25 to help us plan ahead for you.

Under the guidance of University leadership, along with state and local health departments, we will remain open as an essential function of the University.

Housing Offices and Front Desks Closed

Beginning Friday, March 20, Housing staff will work remotely until Monday, April 6 as we adhere to state, county and WWU recommendations for safe work spaces.

To move out of your residence hall, please follow the checkout instructions located at your community front desk. (Ridge residents: please view your community page for front desk information)
