Apply for Housing


For prospective and newly admitted students prior to First Year Students Move-In in August, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will serve as students and parents’ primary contact regarding housing applications. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions can be reached at (314) 935–6000.

Following an offer of admission, prospective first year students will receive their housing application from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions which will give students the opportunity to rank their preferred rooming options, describe their living habits and select a meal plan.

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions makes an electronic version of the housing application available through each student’s WUSTL Pathway. The Office of Residential Life strongly encourages students to utilize the online housing application as it will allow students to view their applications and update their preferences even after they have submitted the online form.

In order to make informed decisions during the housing application process, we invite students and parents to learn more about Residential Life here at Washington University by further exploring our Residential Colleges Communities.

For additional questions, the Office of Residential Life can be reached at (314) 935-5050 or click here to submit a question electronically.
