Applying for housing

The Directors of University Residences & Campus Dining work hard with staff and with the Residence Hall Association to provide safe, quality living environments at a reasonable cost to students and their families.


In planning for expenses while living at and attending WOU, the Room & Board Rate sheet will be helpfull in calculating the cost of your specific room & board choices. All rates include telephone access/voice mail, dataline access, cable tv, and $20 social activity fee/term.




Please Note: Housing assignments are made according to the date the completed application is received and the total number of applications received. Not all hall requests can be accommodated. The University reserves the right to make reassignments at any time based on the administrative needs of the residential program.
