Check-in day is months away in September, and you are wondering . . . Shouldn't I hear something?
No need to worry! Generally, once you have applied for housing, unless there is a problem with your application, you will only hear from University Housing about four times as follows in the months leading up to check-in day. Remember to become familiar with and check your WOU Email (available on the WOU Portal) as we get closer to move-in day.
Within a week or two of receiving your housing application, we will send you a letter confirming that we have received it and that we will reserve a space for you to live on campus.
Generally just a letter or post-card, but this mailing packs a LOT of information for you in it!
You will be asked to complete an on-line confirmation card to hold your housing reservation, and you will receive information about accessing information on-line from what to expect to insurance and computer information to leadership and employment opportunities on campus for the coming year.
MAILED in late May.
THE Mailing that you anxiously await!
Mailed in late July, this mailing will direct you on-line to find out what hall you have been placed in, who your roommate(s) are and how to contact them to find out a little more about them. (We can't tell you if they will be your BFF or not, but we CAN tell you how to get in touch with them!)
This mailing will also include your Housing Contract. You will need to read, sign and date the contract and return it to University Housing by the contract deadline to hold your housing reservation.
Sent out in late August, this email is the final "official" correspondence from University Housing before move-in day. On-Campus addresses for the academic year are released, and last minute information regarding check-in is passed along.
Beyond the correspondance that you can expect to receive from Housing leading up to move-in day, there will be timelines, due dates, event schedules and deadlines to manage leading up to your arrival on campus and then during the academic year as well.
