Spring New Student Application Process

Spring Housing Information

Welcome to William Jessup Residence Life and Housing.  We are excited to welcome you to the Jessup community in January!

The housing placement process for spring new students living on campus will work like this:

October 15 
***Housing Portal Opens.  Apply for William Jessup on campus housing or commuter status if you are not living on campus.  Here is the university residency requirement/commuter policy.  
You must be “Jessup Bound” and confirmed (paid $250 confirmation deposit) before you will fully be able to use the housing portalPlease speak with your Admissions Counselor about any questions regarding the confirmation deposit. New Students do not pay a housing deposit.

November 15
***Submit housing contract & request/link w/ ideal roommate(s).  Once the portal has opened you’ll complete an application for the 2018-2019 academic year. The portal is also where you’ll answer lifestyle questions that will help you match with potential roommate(s). You can use the messaging system to contact other new students and select a person to link with by November 15.  The deadline to link with roommates is November 15 by 11:59PM.  

On a “rolling” basis, housing staff will assign student(s), and their preferred roommate (if applicable) as applications are submitted after the November 15th deadline.  Housing staff will do their best to accommodate as many requests as possible, but nothing is guaranteed.  As the move in date approaches, space becomes limited and fewer requests will be accommodated.

December 5 
***Spring Placement Notifications.  Placements are confirmed via the student’s William Jessup email.  The student will receive an email with the placement as well as the roommate’s name(s) by December 5.

Accommodation Request Deadline – December 1 (New Students) 
***Accommodation Request Deadline.  WJU Disability Support Services (DSS) office provides reasonable accommodations to assist college students with disabilities in having equal access to regular college programs and activities. Accommodations are determined individually for each student through an interactive process and are based on functional limitations resulting from a documented disability.  For more information, please contact DSS@jessup.edu.***
