Submit a maintenance request
If you need a repair made in your room, submit a maintenance request to alert Facility Services of the issue.
Your room will be assigned once you complete BOTH of the these steps:
- Pay your $200 enrollment fee.
- Your enrollment fee is an essential step to getting a roommate and reserving your room.You can't be matched to a roommate or assigned until your enrollment fee is paid. The earlier the payment, the earlier the room assignment.
- Complete a residence hall application at: abode.wallawalla.edu
- If you know who you want as a roommate, simply list their name on your application, (Note, your roommate must also complete an application and pay their enrollment fee before your room can be assigned.)
- Even if you don't know who you want as a roommate, please completely fill out the application, we can use this information to find a roommate for you after you pay your enrollment fee.
After you complete BOTH of these steps, we will confirm your roommate match, and send you an e-mail with detailed information about your room, roommate and address.

Worship is an integral part of the residence hall experience at Walla Walla University. Gathering for worship serves as a daily reminder of who we are and why we are here. Together, we develop a sense of Christian community and encourage each other through Christian fellowship. Individually, worship enhances spiritual growth and strengthens the habit of daily devotions.
All residence hall students are expected to attend campus worships. Students obtain worship credit by turning in worship cards after the completion of a worship program.
Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors who live in the residence halls must accrue 16 worship credits per quarter. Students with senior standing (defined as having 135+ credits) or who are over the age of 22 are exempt.
Worship Program Schedule
Worship programs are held Monday through Friday in various locations. See the Campus Ministries page for an interactive schedule of the worship programs available on campus.
Residents leaving their residence hall overnight are required to submit a leave request (available online) before 11:30 p.m. of the day they are leaving. To extend an overnight leave request, or change request information, please call the dean on duty. Check abode.wallawalla.edu for online confirmation of requests. Residents are expected to spend a minimum of four nights per week in residence halls.
Students may move in to the residence halls beginning the Sunday before classes start in any given quarter.*
If you need to move in earlier than this, you must make prior arrangements with a dean and your rent will be prorated accordingly.
When you arrive to move in, the check-in process begins at the front desk of the residence hall.
*The only exception to this is for students participating in the JumpStart program prior to the commencement of fall quarter classes.
Laundry machines are available in each residence hall for resident use. All machines are high efficiency, front loading machines (and free!).
