    Living

    Considering living on or off campus?


    You can apply to live in one of the many university residence halls managed by Housing and Residence Life (HRL) by visiting their website. The site also contains off-campus housing listings.

    Transfer students may apply for housing online and are placed in housing based on the number of credits they have when they are join the Seattle University community. Students are encouraged to confirm the number of credits that Seattle University has approved as it is instrumental in determining their eligibility for placement.

    Transfer students will have the option to preference a building, room, and/or roommate. Freshmen transfer students who are under the age of 21 will be placed in one of our traditional residence halls. These are Campion, Bellarmine, and Xavier Halls. Sophomore transfer students under the age of 21 will be placed in either our aforementioned Residence Halls or in our Sophomore Engagement Learning Communities located in Chardin Hall and the Murphy Apartments. Freshman, sophomore and under 21 transfers are required to live on campus and are guaranteed space.

    Transfer junior, senior, and students over 21 years of age are not required to live on campus. Applications for these students will be placed on a space available basis. We recommend that junior, senior, and students over 21 years of age explore all of their options in housing since we are not able to guarantee housing for these students. Placement will be based on availability, need, and date the application is received. Priority for housing assignments will be given to transfer students who are transferring from out of state and for students not living in a commutable distance. Space will be extremely limited for fall 2012 so it is likely that few juniors, seniors and over 21 students will be placed.

    Applications are accepted as soon May 1st, on an on-going basis throughout the academic year. If an application is received prior to May 1st, the student will have a May 1st priority (as opposed to the date they turned in the application, i.e. an April application would get May 1st priority).
