contract options

Goldsworth Valley and Stadium Drive

  • Summer (sessions I and II) – 4 month contract
  • Academic year (fall and spring) – 8 month contract
  • Spring only contract based on availability

Students with an academic year lease who do not return spring semester due to graduation, student teaching, studying abroad or leaving the university are not financially responsible for spring semester.  

Western View

  • 12-month contract beginning in late August

Residents sign an individual per-bedroom contract, which means that each roommate is financially responsible for his/her own portion of the rent. If a roommate transfers or moves out, it will not affect your apartment contract. Each resident is responsible for their portion of the utilities. See the 2017-18 contract.

Assignments

Goldsworth Valley and Stadium Drive

Assignments for new residents will be made approximately one month before the start of the semester for which you applied.  If an apartment is available, you will receive notification and payment details via your WMU email account.

Every effort is made to assign you to your first choice. However, the vacancy status at the time of assignment may necessitate assigning you to your second or third choice.

There is no application fee or penalty for not accepting an assignment.

Submitting an application does not guarantee an assignment.

Western View

When you sign up for Western View, you will be able to see all available spaces to choose your own bedroom and apartment.  Click on the building you want and your preferred floor, and then see where there is an open bed.  Apartments will be designated as male, female or coed.  Once you choose a bedroom and apartment and e-sign your contract, you will not be able to change your assignment. 

Roommates

Residence Life does not facilitate roommate matching for apartments. Students seeking roommates are encouraged to use various Web and social media sites to find a WMU student roommate.

Goldsworth Valley and Stadium Drive complexes

Students are able to request a roommate or co-ed apartment on the application.

Western View

At Western View, students can choose their own roommates.

  • One student chooses an apartment and then “pulls” in the additional roommate(s).  You will need each roommate’s name, WIN and personal pin they set in the housing portal.
  • Requested roommates will get an email to enter the housing portal to sign the Western View contract.  They will have a week to complete their contract or the space is released to a new student.
