All housing information regarding rooms, roommates, and move-in will be listed here.

If you know who your roommate will be, you can submit a roommate group with your selected roommate. Both roommates should confirm this roommate group in order to reserve a room.

If you have not listed a specific roommate, you will be entered into the roommate self-selection process. Further instructions on this process will be sent to your WWU email.

Once you have a completed a roommate group, you and your roommate will be able to self-select a room. If you do not meet the self-selection deadline for a roommate/room, a room will be assigned to you based on your preferences listed in the housing application.

Self-Selection Deadline: The deadline to self-select a room and roommate is June 28, 2021. If you do not meet the deadline, the housing dean will assign you a room and roommate based on your preferences listed in your housing application.

If you don’t have a room or roommate assignment, but know what day you plan on arriving, you can still sign up for a move-in appointment! Please visit abode.wallawalla.edu to make an appointment.
