Discover Your Place Undergraduate Housing

Thank you for your interest in living in the UW residence halls.

Welcome to UW Housing!

We will begin accepting new undergraduate student applications for 2014–15 at 2 pm on May 7.

Living in the residence halls is a great way to stay connected with campus. Not only are the residence halls close to classes, labs, libraries and other academic resources, they are also just a few minutes away from performance halls, art and natural history museums, award-winning restaurants, numerous and varied shopping options, public transportation, Husky sports venues, the Burke-Gilman Trail...the list goes on. And you'll be able to take advantage of the many opportunities within your residence hall community, with plenty of activities to support, entertain and enlighten you.

Plan Ahead

Before you can apply to live in the UW residence halls, you will need to set up your UW NetID, which will allow you access to the online housing application. It may take several days for your UW NetID information to be transferred to our database. You should have received information about how to set up your UW NetID with your UW Offer of Admission. Please contact the UW Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 206-543-9686 if you need more information about setting up your UW NetID.

After you create your UW NetID, you may complete the first step in the application process by submitting a HFS Student Profile on the Application and Assignment Home Page. This will create a Housing account for you and will speed things up when it's time for you to submit your application.
