YOU HAVE APPLIED FOR HOUSING – NOW WHAT?

 

 

SPRING 2017

Spring Email

May marks the continuation of the “conversation” that we started in the fall with our in-coming students who have completed the housing application process.

This is the first of three correspondences that you will receive from University Housing, and requires the completion of the online Fall Housing Confirmation to hold your housing reservation.

Look for this important Spring Email with information to access online, to be delivered to your WOU email by late May.

JULY 2017

                          GENERALLY ROUTED IN LATE JULY
– CHECK YOUR WOU EMAIL! –

Routed in late July, this is THE information that students eagerly await. This correspondence explains where students can access online information regarding hall placement, and check on their assigned roommate(s) to see if any changes have been made. It also serves as a good reminder to check your student WOU email address. (University Housing will communicate throughout the summer and INTO THE ACADEMIC YEAR with you via your student WOU email address and the WOU Portal. Get in the habit NOW of checking both for important information that will impact your housing.)

In addition a checklist of items to bring to campus will be posted to help as preparations begin in earnest to arrive on campus in the fall.

FINALLY, THE CURRENT HOUSING CONTRACT, to be read and electronically submitted by the student by the CONTRACT DEADLINE, Set this year at: 5:00 p.m. Friday, August 4th are all included with this mailing.
NOTE:  This is a “soft” deadline. If you are unable to meet this deadline, you have until 5 pm August 11 to read and electronically submit your contract. Contracts NOT received by the August 11 deadline may be subject to cancellation of housing reservation.

 – IMPORTANT NOTES –

  • Housing Contracts released in July must be signed, dated and submitted by 5:00 p.m. Friday, August 11th (currently a tentative date) to hold your housing reservation.

AUGUST 2017
