Residence Hall Early Arrival

If you need to arrive on campus before your assigned check-in date, you may apply for early arrival housing. You will be approved for early arrival only if you meet one of the following qualifications:

  • Academic program requirement

  • Late Advising & Orientation session (autumn quarter only)

  • Participating in international student orientation

  • FIUTS participation
  • ROTC (autumn quarter only)
  • Approved ADA accommodation
  • Need to self-isolate after arriving in Washington

Situations related to jobs, expired leases and travel arrangements do not qualify you for early arrival housing. You will need to make other arrangements for such circumstances.

We are not able to offer early arrival for summer session 2021.

Early Fall Start 2021

September 1, 2021

Early Arrival Periods

Period 1: September 12–20, 2021

Period 2: September 19–20, 2021

Approval for each of these periods will be based on when your program requires you to be on campus (for example, if ROTC requires you to be on campus on September 20, you will be approved for Period 2, not Period 1).

If you are approved to move in during Period 1, you may be housed in a temporary room, in which case you must move to your autumn quarter room on the morning of September 19.

Costs

Early arrival housing is charged at a flat rate based on the number of days in each early arrival housing period.

There is a $25 nonrefundable application charge.

If you apply after the priority deadline (September 1), you will be assessed a $50 expedite charge.
