How to apply
For the 2020-21 academic year, in order to manage housing occupancy and work to mitigate COVID-19 concerns, Self-Selection closed on June 4. The Office of Housing & Residential Life will utilize your preferences submitted in the housing application to make a room assignment for you. You will be notified via your Wayne State email account when you have been assigned.
There may be an opportunity for a limited open room change period later in the summer. We will share more information to your WSU email as it becomes available.
The official communication method with students and staff is your Wayne State University email account. In order to be updated about the important university and housing information, ensure that you set up and check this email account daily.
When you apply for housing, you are signing a legally binding contract with Wayne State University. It is important that you review all the information, dates, deadlines, and policies outlined in the license agreement you sign.
- Occupancy Options: Please review the 2 different occupancy options within the Housing License Agreement; 1. Spring/Summer Term (2020) & Standard Academic Year OR 2. Standard Academic Year. First-year students will not have occupancy options as all assignments are for the Standard Academic Year. You will also need to select the correct housing application that corresponds with your requested occupancy option.
- Under 18 Students: If a student signs the housing license agreement terms in the housing application while still under the age of 18, the student's listed parent/guardian will also need to review, agree to, and sign the license agreement. A housing application is not complete until the student's parent/guardian completes their portion.
There are a variety of different types of housing that a student can choose from depending upon their class standing, age, and housing needs.
