VILLAGE HOUSING WAIT LIST
INTRODUCTION "Village Housing Wait List" Process
The Village Housing Wait List is a list generated three times each year, of current WWU students interested in living in university-owned housing/apartments for the following quarter. The list application is accessed through your myWWU account. If you are not a current student, but you plan on transferring, or if you are currently attending school abroad (ACA) or serving as a Student Missionary, you must fill out a Housing Wait List Application Form (PDF) and send that in as soon as possible to be considered for housing for the subsequent quarter.
SIGN UP DATES
The Village Housing Wait List Sign-Up dates for the 2010-2011 school year are listed below. Please be aware that you can only access this sign-up through your myWWU account during these dates, and the sign up will not be made available until 12am (midnight) of the first day:
- Winter Quarter 2011...November 18-24
- Spring Quarter 2011...February 16-22
- Summer/Fall Quarter 2010...May 16-22*
*In order to sign up for the Summer and/or Fall Quarter 2010 Wait List, you must attend one of four required workshops presented on May 11 & 12. For a schedule of when and where these workshops will be given, please contact the WWU Housing Office.
VILLAGE WAIT LIST...A "HOW-TO" GUIDE
- Log onto your myWWU Account the day prior to the sign-up to make sure your account is working properly.
- At 12am of the first day of the sign ups (ex: For Winter Quarter, Sign Ups will begin on 12am, November 18th, which is technically the night of the 17th), log into your myWWU Account.
- Answer the questions from the eligibility calculator*.
- Once your information is collected, the computer will check your credits, age, and/or marital status to determine if you are eligible to fill out the rest of the application (please be aware that even though you are able to sign up for the Housing Wait List, you must still obtain approval through Student Administration and have a minimum of 10 weeks good citizenship).
- As you fill out the application, remember to provide your most accurate contact information (especially for summer) so that we can get a hold of you when we reach your name, and be sure to mark every type of residence you would be willing to consider (otherwise, if you don't check Hallmark Apartments as a place you'd consider, but Hallmark is all we have when we get to your name, you will not be called).
- Once you submit the application, you will receive a stamp that you have completed the application. Your name is then submitted to the Wait List via the time/date stamp. Since the application is first come/first serve (aside from our priority lists of married and/or with kids and/or 25 & older), it's best to sign up early.
- Phone calls for reservations are typically started the week after the wait list sign up is complete, with the exception of Fall Quarter. Summer and Fall Quarter Sign Ups happen at the same time. Summer reservations happen between May 31 and June 18. Fall reservations will begin the week of June 28 and could last through August. Once a reservation has been made, you must complete the following steps:
- Send in your Housing/Administration Fee within one week of making the reservation
- Obtain Clearance from the Office of Student Life by filling out the Off-Campus Housing Eligibility Form (you must meet eligibility requirements prior to moving in)
- Obtain Clearance from the Office of Financial Services by completing your financial applications, which must include the amount of rent that will be charged to your account on a monthly basis
