New Student Applications
Apply online now (for first year and transfer students)
New students in interested in applying for a residence hall room at West Liberty University need to complete an application, and submit a damage deposit of $100. In order for an application to be processed and a room reserved, both the application and deposit must be received. There is not a deadline for submission of applications, earlier application increases the probability that you will be assigned to the room or building of your choice, with the roommate of your choice. The Office of Housing & Student Life will make every effort to meet the reasonable requests of students for their rooms. If you choose to cancel your application, the damage deposit will be refund in cases where written cancellation request was received prior to June 30th for fall applications, and prior to December 15th for spring applications.
Room assignments will be made based on the date we receive both application and deposit, and prioritized accordingly. New students will begin receiving their assignments on June 1st each year. Additional mailings will be sent out on July 1st and August 1st to include those students who apply after June 1st. Single rooms requests for first year students are only granted in cases where the student has a special accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Choosing a Roommate
If a student does not have a specific roommate request, we will utilize the interest survey portion of the room application to assign them a roommate who will best match their interests. For this reason, it is very important that the student fill out the room application themselves! Once the student receives their room assignment and roommate information, we strongly encourage them to contact their roommate to begin getting to know one another and making plans for their room. If a student strongly believes that they are not a solid match, or discovers there are problems either before or after they move into the room, the Office of Housing & Student Life will work diligently with the student to find a more comfortable living situation.
