The housing application for newly admitted students will be available by May 1. All housing applications are reviewed after the priority submission deadline of June 1.
Your Housing Application allows you to indicate certain lifestyle characteristics you may want Residence Life to consider when making your housing placement. Housing placements are made based on a variety of factors, including your indicated preferences. To make the best possible match for you based on your preferences, please fill out your Housing Application by June 5, available through myPugetSound by May 1. Your Housing Application link will appear on your account once your $500 tuition deposit has been processed. All applications submitted before June 5 will be given equal consideration.
Housing assignments will be based on your responses, available space, and your best match for roommates. Special considerations are made for medical or health related needs, placement in academic residential programs, placement in various themed housing programs, lifestyle preferences, roommate requests, and availability. All information provided in the Housing Application are preferences, and specific housing arrangements cannot be guaranteed.
Residence Life believes sharing a living space with another student is an important part of the college experience, and essential to the Puget Sound experience. All incoming students should expect to be placed in a double, triple, or quad room. Single rooms are not available to incoming students without approval from Student Accessibility and Accommodations for medical or psychological need. There are very limited number of single rooms available for those approved for a housing adjustment. Documentation is required. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website.
As an incoming new student, if you have met another incoming new student that you would like to request as a roommate, you may indicate this preference on your housing application. You will need the Puget Sound identification number for the person you are requesting to be matched with. Your Puget Sound ID can be found on your welcome page of your myPugetSound portal:

Puget Sound has several academic themed residential programs, some of which start your first year. When selecting your first-year seminar course, you may notice “RS” at the end of the course title.

Some seminars will only be residential and others will have one section that is residential.
In addition to Residential Seminars, the Business Leadership Program (BLP) and Honors program house students together in one community with roommates from the BLP or Honors program. If you are interested in living on the BLP or the Honors floor in Regester Hall, please indicate your interest on the housing application.
Please indicate on your housing application if you have a specific medical accommodation request or concern, such as a mobility need, psychological condition that impacts your housing assignment, or request for accommodation of a medical support animal. Residence Life will follow up individually with students regarding the specifics of their needs.
If you need a housing adjustment because of a medical, physical or psychological disability, you must make your request through Student Accessibility and Accommodation. Please email email@example.com to register with SAA and make a formal request for an accommodation.
