When to Apply for Housing
Western uses the quarter system and new students start each quarter. Check out the timeline dates below for new students with an admission term of fall, winter or spring quarter for the 2024-2025 academic year. New students starting at the university in spring or summer should plan to submit two housing applications: one for spring/summer housing, and one for housing during the academic-year starting in fall quarter.
For more information on this, contact Housing at email@example.com.
3. Pay your housing prepayment online or by mail
Once you’ve received the message in MyHousing that your housing prepayment is due, follow the instructions to pay. Check your housing prepayment status in MyHousing a few business days after submitting or mailing your payment to make sure it goes through. If you have not paid by the deadline, we will cancel your application.

Requirements & Eligibility
New students can apply for fall housing starting Feb. 1. New students who complete the housing application process by the appropriate deadlines are prioritized for housing their first year at Western (or for the rest of the academic year if admitted mid-year).
To live on campus, undergraduate students must be enrolled in a minimum of eight credits per quarter during the academic year, and five credits during summer quarter.
When you apply, you also accept Western’s Housing Agreement. The contract states that you plan to live on campus from your move in date through the end of the academic year. Moving out before the end of the school year will result in a contract breakage fee, except in cases of graduation, school withdrawal, study abroad or internship.
While new Western students receive housing priority, University Residences may grant housing requests to other student applicants as space allows.
University Residences provides an avenue for students who experience contractual difficulties (such as Housing Application on hold due to space availability, disagreement with the assessment of a housing charge against their account, etc).
