Congratulations on your acceptance to Seattle University. Housing and Residence Life is pleased that you are considering joining the Seattle University community for your college education. Seattle University is a premier university located in a diverse, world- class city and area rich in Jesuit tradition and heritage.
We believe that living on campus is an integral part of the educational experience. Therefore, we require that all first- and second- year undergraduate students live on campus and purchase a meal plan unless they are commuting from the home of their parent or legal guardian, are age 21 and older, married or have children. Students who live on campus often become more involved in activities and programs, achieve greater academic success and have greater satisfaction with their overall university experience. Living on campus will give you convenient access to campus resources, the city of Seattle and the beautiful landscape of the Puget Sound. Many alumni state that some of their fondest college memories are about the friends they made and the activities they were involved in while living in the residence halls.
We realize that you may have questions about life in the residence halls. The Guide to Residence Hall Living will explain the housing application process, describe our learning communities, each residence hall and food service. Living in the residence halls and being part of a community of students learning together is a great experience. The residence hall environment is a vital piece of Seattle University's campus life. While engaging your academic pursuits, living on campus enables you to become more involved in student life and provides excellent opportunities for you to learn and grow outside of the classroom.
We hope this information will help you prepare for on- campus living at Seattle University. We look forward to assisting you in the housing assignment process as well as your transition to campus. You should expect to be notified of your housing assignment in early August. If you have any additional questions, or need clarification on anything, contact us at:
