Graduate Student Housing

What our residents are saying

UW graduate housing is—

Convenient: Pay for everything in just one bill per month—separate from your roommate, flexible billing accommodates your financial aid schedule, and no first-last month’s rent to move in

Independent: We’re there if you need us

Close: Minutes from classes, labs and libraries

Apartment amenities

All students living in campus apartments have access to the following amenities:

  • Area 01, a makerspace in Maple Hall
  • Fitness Center West, a gym with cardio and free weight equipment in Elm Hall
  • Alder Commons in Alder Hall has four meeting rooms, a 222-seat auditorium and a foyer (The Commons). These rooms are suitable for meetings, lectures and events. UW residents can reserve meeting rooms or The Commons.
  • Leadership and Programming Office, a resource for planning community programs, learning more about leadership training opportunities and much more, in Madrona Hall

Apartment dining plans

You need to study, and we love to cook! Students living in UW campus apartments have the option to select a dining plan that can be used to cover most or all of your eating expenses or just act as a supplement to your dining budget. Learn more about the apartment dining plans in the Residential Dining Guide. The guide covers how and where the dining plan works and the cost of the different plans.
