HOW TO SIGN UP
New students and students currently living off campus.
- Fall 2019: Sign up begins at 10 a.m. EST Jan. 30, 2019.
- Contract priority is date, not time, stamped. Students who sign up at 10 a.m. have the same priority as students who sign up at 11 p.m. the same day.
Students returning to the residence halls for another year sign up starting in January. When you sign up depends on what type of room and where you want to live.
Please be aware that you are entering into a legally binding contract with the University. Upon signing this contract, you (and your parent(s) or guardian if you are under the legal age of 18) become responsible for all the terms and financial obligations of your contract until the end of the spring semester. Please contact the Residence Life office at (269) 387-4735 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Students who do not return spring semester due to graduation, student teaching, studying abroad or leaving the university are not financially responsible for spring semester.
In late May, students self-select their residence hall, room and meal plan for fall semester. Completing the housing application reserves a space and assigns you to a Room Selection Group. On May 10, we will email your WMU address with your assigned date to login and choose your room. Room Selection Groups are assigned based on the date your housing contract is completed.
