Housing Application Process
Once you have been admitted to Winona State University, you will receive a packet of information on how to secure on-campus housing. This packet of information will arrive approximately 2 weeks after you've received your WSU admittance letter.
Agreement for Housing and Dining
The Agreement for Housing and Dining binds you to certain legal requirements. Be sure to review this agreement and contact our office if you have any questions.
Bed Lofting Information
Lofting your bed is one way to maximize the space in your residence hall room. Please refer to our Loft Information page for more information or to request a loft extension kit. The loft rental fee for the academic year is $100 and will be applied to your student account within the first few weeks of the semester.
We strongly encourage you to speak with your roommate about the option of lofting your beds. Loft requests for Fall 2014 must be received by August 1st in order to guarantee in room delivery for August 19th.
If you request a loft and decide to return it before September 8, 2014, there will be a $10 restocking fee applied to your student account. If you return your loft after September 8, 2014, you will be charged the $50 semester rental fee.
All of our lofts are owned by WSU and stored right in your residence hall. There will be lofts available for you to request on move-in day, August 19th.
Room Change Request
Room assignments are based on the date our office received your completed housing application, housing agreement, and $250 pre-payment. If you were not placed in one of the residence halls you listed as preferred on your housing application, that means those halls were to capacity by the time your application date was placed; therefore automatically assigning you to another residence hall that still had space available.
We will be accepting room change requests throughout the summer. If there is space available, we will do our best to accommodate your request. We will not accept room change requests after August 1st to give our office staff time to have everyone placed and prepare for your arrival. A room change request option will be available again starting Monday, September 8th here.
Please remember, this is a request only and we are only able to honor your request if space is available.
Canceling your Housing Agreement
Housing agreements for first-year students may be canceled and $200 of the $250 pre-payment will be refunded if the cancellation is received by July 1, 2014 for the 2014-2015 school year. Cancellations must be received in writing, from the admitted student, to notify our office of their cancellation.
March 1st – Complete application and $250 pre-payment ($50.00 is a non-refundable processing fee) is due in the Housing Office to guarantee your space in the residence halls. We begin receiving applications in October, so please apply early!
June 15th - Room Assignments and Roommate Information will be available for students to view online. The meal plan option is open to select a meal plan.
