Important Information

Updated July 27, 2020

CWU’s Board of Trustees recently announced their decision to reduce the residential spaces available in order to provide a safer housing experience for students living on campus.  While we wish we could accommodate students in our normal occupancy amounts, we understand and support the Board of Trustees and CWU’s leadership in this difficult choice.


CWU Housing and Residence Life will be working to reallocate room spaces to fit this proscribed housing arrangement.  This may take some time and we expect to have an update to students by Monday, August 10.  We appreciate your patience during this waiting time.


We know that the current circumstances of Covid-19 have changed many student’s plans and hopes for attending CWU in person this Fall.  Please note if you would like to change your housing contract you are able to:

  1. First Year Live On Requirement: As of Monday, July 27, 2020, CWU has waived the First Year Live on Requirement for first year students enrolling Fall Quarter 2020.  No exemption forms are required for this exemption and you will not be required to fulfill the live on requirement later in your academic career at CWU. 
  2. Cancellation Fees: From July 27, 2020 through Monday, August 3, 2020 at noon, CWU Housing and Residence Life will waive all residence hall and apartment cancellation fees for those wishing to cancel their housing contract.  Students may log in to their MyHousing and revisit the application to cancel their housing application  if they wish do so.
  3. Contract Revision: If you are a residence hall student who has not completed their revised 2020-2021 contract (originally due July 15, 2020), please do so by Monday, August 3 by noon or unfortunately we will need to cancel your contract, refund your housing deposit, and release your room reservation.

We know you may have other questions about this announcement and what Housing and Residence Life is doing for students who are concerned about their on campus housing.  Please visit the list of FAQ's at the bottom of this letter.  We appreciate students and families reviewing the FAQs before reaching out to Housing to allow staff to work through the reallocation of assignments. We will also make this information, and any future changes, easily available through our housing website. 


We appreciate your patience during these unprecedented circumstances. We understand this information is difficult for many of you to hear as we know many of you are excited to make CWU your home away from home, but we hope you understand that these measures are in the interest of prioritizing the health and safety of our campus community. We wish you and yours the very best and look forward to your return to CWU.
