Residence Hall Sign-Up

We recommend students complete the online sign-up process versus mailing in a printed contract. Please review the 2014-15 contract for information. You will be notified by email (to your Western Michigan University student email account) of your room assignment and roommate information. You may view your contract and assignment status at any time. You will automatically receive an email notification when assignment information is released or changed.
