Early Move-In/Housing

Viking Launch Housing

Viking Launch students arrive to campus a week prior to the start of fall 2024 quarter. Early housing move-in provides students with added time to become acquainted with the university campus life. Students can opt into housing affinities on the Housing application.

All incoming fall students who want to live on campus (including Viking Launch participants) must apply for housing through the MyHousingPortal, pay the deposit, and complete roommate search and room selection by the deadlines listed on the Housing Timeline.

After you apply for on-campus housing you are eligible to use Roommate Search. In your Search bio you should mention you are registered for the Viking Launch program. Please check the status on your MyHousingPortal dashboard often for updates. If you are participating in both Viking Launch and Honors, please contact University Residences for guidance on your residence hall selection.

If you have specific Housing questions about residence hall attributes, special housing requests (i.e. gender neutral rooms, accessibility, substance-free, etc.), or room/roommate selection, please contact University Residences directly: (360) 650-6565 (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.) or Housing@wwu.edu.
