How to Apply for Housing
After you have been admitted to West Virginia University, please complete the following steps to apply for housing:
Pay Your Academic Deposit
Payment is due by December 1 if you need housing for the spring semester and by May 1 for students starting in the fall semester.
Review Housing Options
Each residence hall is a great place to live. Check out each hall and determine which hall will be the best for you. Start by reviewing the details of each hall. You can also plan a tour with the Visitors Center.
Complete Your Housing Application
Wait at least 48 hours after you pay the academic deposit and log on to myhousing.wvu.edu to complete the online housing application and submit the $225 housing deposit.
Select Your Roommate
You are able to select your own roommate! Simply complete your online profile at myhousing.wvu.edu . Once you do that, search profiles of other students to find the perfect roommate.
Select Your Room
