YOUR PREFERENCES TO PARTICIPATE
IN THE PROCESS & FIND OUT
WHEN YOUR SELECTION TIME SLOT
WILL BEGIN!

Watch the How To Video
  • Starting at 10 am, Log onto the WOU Portal, look for
    Housing Home. You will be able to access and read the
    Terms and Conditions of Service. Understand that by
    participating in the Housing Selection Process (this
    includes being pulled in as a roommate) you agree to
    these Terms and Conditions for the process.
  • You can and should update your preferences (Roommates,
    Meal Plan and Contact Info).
  • If you don’t have any edits to make to this information, just
    click on the blue “next” button to submit your preferences as
    they stand. Completing this part of the process will generate
    your Selection Start Date and Time.
  • You don’t have to “hurry” to do this part of the process, but
    you DO NEED TO 
    COMPLETE YOUR PREFERENCES
    PRIOR TO THE SELECTION PHASE AND . . .
    TO SEE WHEN YOUR 
    SELECTION TIME SLOT WILL BEGIN.
    The sooner you do 
    this, the sooner you will know when you
    can go into the 
    system to make your selections and can make
    plans to make sure that you are available at that time!
  • THIS is when you add your roommate choices and
    they add YOU as THEIR roommate choice to confirm
    each other. Doing this will allow you to pull roommates into
    a space you select, or to be pulled in by someone else. 
  • REMEMBER, ONLY CONFIRMED ROOMMATES WILL 
    SHOW UP IN THE SELECTION PROCESS TO PULL IN
    OTHERS OR BE PULLED IN BY
    OTHERS.
