Charges for delayed departure, an uncleaned or damaged room, or failure to return keys are also applied to the student's account. Should a student not enroll, the entire deposit will be refunded.

COMPUTER NETWORK USE ON THE COLLEGE PLACE CAMPUS

All rooms are wired for connections to the campus computer network. Students are responsible for getting a network card needed to connect to the campus computer network. Network cards may be purchased through Information Services and can be used throughout a student's university stay.

PRINTING IN PC LABS

Students will be charged for printing in the library and general purpose PC Labs. Each student will be given $10 credit (100 free pages) each quarter in case of technical problems with printing. After that, each page will cost 10¢. At the end of each quarter, the printing charges will be added to each students account.

University-Owned, Off-Campus Housing

Walla Walla University owns several studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. In addition, houses are available for families. Rental rates are comparable with rates in the community. Rent is charged in three-month increments. The first and last period's rent is prorated based on the check in and check out dates. The University requires a 30-day "move out" notice. Students not giving a 30-day notice may forfeit up to 30 days of rent.  Students not registered for the following quarter are required to vacate the residence the day after the end of the quarter or the day after graduation in June. Off-campus housing is available on a first-come, first-served basis during open application periods. Priority is given to students who have Disability support Services approval, or are married, or are 25 years of age or older, or who have children. For waitlist application dates and instructions, visit wallawalla.edu/village.

Financial arrangements must be approved by Student Financial Services before a student may move into university housing. For more information about housing availability, students may contact the office of WWU Village Housing Office at (509) 527-2109. 

Housing Administration Fees

A Housing Administration Fee is required for all university-owned Village Housing units before the key is given to the tenant. This fee is non-refundable and is required anytime a tenant occupies a residence. The fee is charged separately to each tenant ($330 for a married couple or single occupancy of two bedroom apartment). 

Single Occupant:$175/ea
Married/Family Occupant: $350
Two Bedroom, Single Occupant: $350

 

The Housing Administration Fee covers administrative costs, basic carpet cleaning, and routine touch-up cleaning after moving out. Upon vacating, tenants are responsible for restoring the residence to the condition it was upon move in. If there are charges for additional cleaning or damage, items left, delayed departure, or failure to return keys that exceed the Housing Administration Fee paid, these charges will be added to the student's account after moving out.    

Pet Policy

The only animals allowed in university-owned student housing are fish (total combined tank volume cannot exceed 55 gallons per residence), or approved service animals. Approval for service animals must be pre-authorized through the Disability Support Service Coordinator. Pets are not allowed in any university-owned student housing. This includes pets of visiting family members or friends.

Student Conduct procedure:

  • If a pet is suspected to be living in a student's premises, a 48-hour notice of pet inspection will be given. If evidence of a pet is found, a $100 fine will be assessed immediately and a notice will be given to comply with the pet policy within ten days.
  • If a pet is seen in a student's premises, a $100 fine will be assessed immediately, and a notice will be given to comply with the pet policy within ten days. At the end of the ten days, a pet inspection will take place to verify the removal of the pet.

If a pet, or continued evidence of a pet is found again ten days after the notice to comply was given, a notice of eviction will be delivered.
