Returner Sign-Up for the Residence Halls

To sign up, use the direct housing portal link or go to WMU Login and under the My Self Service section on the left choose the link "Residence Life Housing." As you move through the screens, you’ll pick your hall and then your room from a floor diagram.

Follow the schedule for when to choose your room.

  • Same room: Sign-up is 10 a.m. Jan. 21 to 23, 2020
  • Any room/hall: Sign-up starts at 10 a.m. Jan. 24, 2020 ongoing
  • Summer housing: Sign-up begins March 16, 2020

Single rooms

Single rooms are available in all halls except Western Heights and Shilling Hall. Valley single rooms are scattered throughout each hall, but second Ackley, third Britton, first Garneau and sixth Harvey are returner-only floors with all single rooms. Students interested in a single can choose their specific room during the returner sign up process. Zimmerman Hall is all single rooms.

  • Sign-up is 10 a.m. Jan. 21 to 23, 2020 for your current single
  • Sign up starting 10 a.m. Jan. 24, 2020 for a single in any hall

Canceling your contract

Completing a housing contract for fall 2020 means entering into a legally binding agreement with WMU. If you change your mind and cancel, a cancellation fee will apply.

Cancel through May 1 $300
Cancel May 2 through July 31 $400
Cancel Aug. 1 through 5 p.m. of last business day before the halls open $500

You will not be able to hold a space in the online sign up system without completing a housing contract. If you’re not sure about your housing plans, we recommend waiting to sign up.

Roommates

Doubles

Create a Roommate Group to claim a room for both of you. Your friend will get an email to their WMU account to accept or decline the invite.

Triples and Quads

The best way to claim a triple is for all three students to sign up at the same time choosing beds A, B and C in the same room. Be aware you will not be able to see who is already in the room in case two groups are signing up for the same triple simultaneously.

If four people want a quad in the Burnhams:

  • Log on individually and pick the four beds that make up a quad, or
  • create two Roommate Groups so each group can claim a room.

Like with triples, you will not be able to see who is already in the room in case two groups are signing up for the same room simultaneously.
