HOW TO SIGN UP FOR CAMPUS APARTMENTS
Who can live in the apartments? Any current resident. Since the apartments are considered on-campus housing, you can reserve a unit even if you are less that 20 years old.
How to apply. Apartment units are reserved by group application, available in OUS. Each unit type (two-person, four-person, etc.) has its own application period (see Sign-up Schedule PDF for details on when and where applications are available).
Required paperwork. Students receive a Room and Meal Plan Contract and Residential Student Guidebook when they pick up their group application. The Contract and Guidebook together form a legal and binding agreement, so read both documents thoroughly to understand the terms of your residency at SPU. Each student must submit a contract with the group application for it to be accepted. If you cancel your contract after reserving a unit, you will forfeit your $300 housing deposit (which you paid when you first applied for housing).
Prioritizing applications. Group applications are ordered by total seniority points (see Seniority Points). The applications with the highest points will qualify to reserve a unit. If a tie occurs, applications will be prioritized by the date and time received.
Choosing a unit. Because of the small number of one-, three-, five-, and six-person units, students will list their unit preferences directly on their application; qualifying groups will receive email notification of the apartment they have been assigned. Groups qualifying for two- and four-person units will attend a separate sign-up event to choose a specific apartment; group representatives will receive an email with details on the process.
The fine print. The application process is designed so that you will know whether you have qualified for one type of unit before the application period for the next type begins. Your name may not appear on more than one application in each category. Once you qualify for a unit, you may not apply for another unit.
