Reserve Your Room

Reserve your room using the online campus housing reservation system or apply to live in one of our themed apartments.

To start the process for fall quarter, you may log in and fill out the housing application. Begin by confirming or adding your information. You can also request ADA accommodations if necessary.

When to Reserve Your Room

Fall quarter

  • Returning residents: Fall 2019 reservations open on March 1, 2019 (tentative date subject to change).  
  • New students: Fall 2018 reservations open on March 15, 2019 (tentative date subject to change).  
  • The freshman fall housing priority deadline is May 1, 2019. After May 1, rooms are available on a first come first served basis until we are full.
  • The ADA fall housing priority deadline is May 1, 2019.  After May 1, we will continue to accept requests for ADA housing, however we may not be able to meet all requests by fall quarter.

Other quarters

Winter and Spring: room selection begins at 5pm on the Friday of the previous quarter's evaluation week and ends at noon on the Wednesday before the quarter starts. See the Academic Calendar at a glance for specific dates.

Summer housing is handled through a special process. See the Summer Housing page for more info.

Get Started

To use the online campus housing reservation system, you must be admitted to Evergreen and have an email address.

Many rooms on campus are reserved using our self assign system. 

After self assignable rooms fill up, students may pay the rent down payment and booking fee to join the housing list, where they will receive their room assignment via email in spring or summer.

If you’d like to live in themed housing you need to complete a separate theme housing application process.

Review the rental contract to make sure you are aware of all important dates, dining plan requirements for all residents with fewer than 40 credits, and other terms of the contract.

How to Select a Room

Choose your roommates

You can hold spaces for friends if you know their Evergreen email addresses. They will receive an email and have 24 hours to log in and reserve a room in your unit.

  • Log in to the campus housing reservation system to view a map of housing and reserve your room.

  • Select your room from a map of available rooms (like purchasing concert or airline tickets).

    • After publicly available rooms are gone, you can join the housing list  and our assignment manager will find you a room. 

  • At the time you click to hold a room, or request to join the housing list, you have 48 hours to pay and lock in your room.

    • A non-refundable booking fee and non-refundable rent down payment will be assessed to your student account.

      • $250 rent down payment is applied to your first term's rent

      • $50 booking fee pays for system processing.

    • If you do not pay the non-refundable booking fee and non-refundable rent down payment in full, these charges will be backed out of your student account and the held room will become available to other students.

    • If your financial aid expected family contribution is under $5080, you may be eligible to defer the rent down payment and booking fee.  Contact us for more information about the deferred payment agreement. 

Check your Evergreen email

After you reserve your room, we'll send important messages to your email address.

You can forward your email to another address.

Offices across the college send information to your address that is essential to your success at Evergreen. Housing information sent via email includes:

  • Room reservation confirmation
  • Meal plan information—Freshman (40 credits or fewer) living in on-campus housing are required to have a dining plan
  • Roommate contact information sent in early September
  • How to check-in
  • Other information about living on campus

Canceling Your Application

If you’ve already booked a room but change your mind and are not planning on living with us, cancel your application and avoid being billed for rent.

What if I can't pay the booking fee and rent down payment within 48 hours?

If you are eligible for financial aid, download the Deferred Payment Agreement (PDF), fill it out, and bring a signed copy (or email a photo of a signed copy) to the housing office.  The non-refundable booking fee and non-refundable rent down payment will still be assessed to your student account, but they won't be due until you receive your financial aid and rent is due.  As we are holding a room for you that is not available to other students, the charges are non-refundable even if you decide to cancel your room.
