Room Assignments

Room assignments for fall semester are emailed in early June to your Western Michigan University email. The email will have a link to look up your assignment and summer information to know. We will continue to process new applications every two weeks during the summer.

Roommate information will be sent out via your WMU email account in late July.

Housing assignments are made in the order in which students sign up. If you do not receive one of your top choices, it most likely means those halls were full. Information will be in your room assignment email on how you may be able to make a change to your assignment over the summer.

If you did not receive your requested roommate, there could be a few reasons. The roommate request may not have been mutual, or both people may not have had a completed housing application. Roommates must request each other and both must sign up by May 15.

If you are not satisfied with your housing assignment or roommate, there will be a summer process to make changes if space is available. Those directions will be in your room assignment email. Students can also move during the school year. After the second week of the semester, you may contact any hall that you are interested in living in to see if they have available space.

Assignments for spring semester

Room assignments and roommate information for the spring semester will be emailed to your WMU student email account in mid-December.

Assignments for summer housing

Room assignments for summer I and II are sent out approximately one week before the beginning of each session to your WMU student email account.
