New and International Students
Placements for new and international students will be based on acceptance to KWU, deposit cleared, and THEN the order, time received, and applicant status academically of the housing application. If the housing application is received before acceptance and confirmation of a cleared deposit, the housing application will be relegated to the time frame after acceptance to KWU and deposit is confirmed. This process could take several days.
The cut-off date for applications to be fully considered in the hall of the resident’s choice is June 1 for new and international students. At this time the applications will be reviewed by the housing committee and placements will be based on several factors filled out by the applicants for roommate matches. Housing and roommate assignments will be announced via email and MyKWU portal no later than July 15 prior to the academic year.
Placements for returning students will be based on the order and time received, academic status and disciplinary record (among other things) through the housing committee. These criteria are in no specific order of importance. No preference will be given to those already in Pfeiffer Hall. If a close-call with time frames and space available in Pfeiffer Hall should occur, precedence will go as follows for the tie-breaker:
- Upperclassman (senior or junior). Senior gets highest priority.
- Disciplinary record at KWU in the residence halls.
Students with Special Needs and/or Medical Issues
Students seeking an accommodation (ESA, medical, etc.) must notify the Director of Career Services Claudette Humphrey ([email protected]) in writing along with the residence hall application. Proof of special needs and/or medical conditions must be in written form and may require a doctor’s verification.
1. Upperclassman (senior or junior). Senior gets highest priority. 2. Disciplinary record at KWU. 3. GPA
Exceptions to the above requirements would be excess space available and high-priority/eligible residents decline the offer of a private room.”
