ROOM CHARGES ON THE PORTLAND CAMPUS

Rooms in Hansen Hall are usually available for single occupancy only and the rent is $1,685 per quarter. Should double occupancy be approved, rent would be charged at the same rate as Foreman Hall for each occupant.

ROOM DEPOSIT ON THE PORTLAND CAMPUS

A $175 deposit is required to reserve a room in Hansen Hall. Upon their departure, a refund of up to $115 may be applied to the student's account. 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. Printed pages are charged at a rate of 10 cents per monochrome and 25 cents per color page. Each student will be given $10 credit each quarter to compensate for technical challenges when printing in these locations. Printing charges are tallied at the end of each quarter and added to each student's account less the $10 credit.

University-Owned, Off-Campus (Village) Housing

Walla Walla University owns a limited number of apartments and houses for students to rent. Rent is charged to the student account in 3 month increments and prorated based on check-in and checkout dates. 

Students must apply for housing during open application periods. Priority is granted to applicants who are married and/or have children and/or are 25 years of age or older. Housing offers are made to other applicants on a first-come, first served basis. Financial arrangements must be approved by Student Financial Services before a student may move into a residence. 

Students not registered for the following quarter are required to vacate the day after the last day of finals, or if graduating in June, the day following the graduation commencement. A 30-day "move out" notice is required. Students not giving a 30-day notice may forfeit up to 30 days of rent. Upon vacating, students are responsible for restoring the residence to its initial clean condition. If there are charges for an incomplete move-out, cleaning, damage, moving out late, or failure to return keys, these charges will be added to the student's account.

Housing Administration Fees

A non-refundable Housing Administration Fee is required before occupying a residence. This fee covers administrative costs and may be paid by check or cash at the Village Housing Office or by credit/debit card or e-check online. Credit card payments do charge a convenience fee.

  • $175 if in a 1 bedroom or shared 2+ bedroom residence.
  • $350 if married/family, or living alone in a 2+ bedroom residence.

Village Housing Eligibility

To be eligible for Village Housing, one must:

  • be 22 years or older and/or have completed 135 credits and /or live with a sibling who is at least 22 years old and has no other roommates.
  • be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours as an undergraduate student, or 8 credit hours as a graduate student.

Pet Policy

Animals of any kind, except harmless fish in an aquarium (not to exceed 10-gallon capacity per residence) are prohibited.  Service and assistance animals are restricted to students who have received prior accommodations for such through Disability Support Services.  The presence of animals within university-owned housing poses serious health, safety, and maintenance concerns.  In addition to direct damage incurred by animals, many students have allergic reactions to various animals.
