Live on Campus

About 9-month housing

Residence halls

Our 9-month housing is for students who want to have a traditional on-campus living experience. This means you will live on campus Autumn, Winter and Spring quarters.

Room types

The range of price points and room types in our residence halls gives flexibility for our students’ diverse budgets and lifestyles. The UW is committed to keeping housing costs as low as possible while providing students with their expectation of a modern living environment.
