New Student Housing Application Information

Online Housing Selection Process

Accepted students will receive an email from Student Development/Residence Life approximately a month after being accepted.  Learn about your housing options here.  Students will be able to rank their housing preferences and select a roommate on the housing application which can be accessed through the myWheaton portal using a student's login information.

Housing assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis, based on the date and time which you submit your housing preference information online.  Accepted students are encouraged to complete the online housing application even if the student has not yet confirmed his or her enrollment at Wheaton. The housing application is used only as a guide in placing students, however, and does not guarantee a student his/her choices.

Housing Assignments

Residence Hall and roommate assignments are emailed in July (mid-December for spring semester applicants) to students at their myWheaton accounts, allowing maximum flexibility in arranging housing for our students.

Roommates are assigned according to the choices a student selects on their online housing preference form. Roommate requests must be mutually submitted online before June 1.

Room Furniture Setup

All of our room furniture is stackable and designed to allow students to be creative with how they would like to set up their space.  It is very common for students to rearrange their rooms multiple times throughout the year as they see other room setups and get settled in.  Specific building and room layouts will dictate how many options are possible.  Click the link below to see how the furniture works.
