Housing is offering a $3,000 discount for the 2021-2022 academic year for students living on-campus. To be eligible, students must apply for their housing and meal contract by June 1.

There is no limit to how many students can apply for the “Live Here, Wildcat” discount as long as they apply by the deadline. All students, except incoming freshmen, are eligible for the discount.

Trisha Rabel, the executive director of housing and residence life, said the intent of the program is to encourage more students to live on campus.

The ‘Live Here, Wildcats’ incentive program is designed to be a one-time cost discount in recognition of the unprecedented need for a residential experience for students that may not have had an opportunity to experience the robust residential campus that CWU offers,” Rabel said.

During the current academic year, fewer than 2,000 students live on campus. Since fewer students came to campus than previous years, many CWU students missed out on the full campus experience they were paying for. This coming year CWU plans to fully open up the campus and allow more students to apply for housing. 

The $3,000 discount will be split for each quarter with $1,000 being deducted from each quarter’s room and board costs. The “Live Here, Wildcat” discount will not apply to students living in on-campus apartments.

Students can apply on MyCWU through the MyHousing page, found in the “student” tab under “university housing.”

Only students who are both seeking a degree and have already spent three quarters living on campus will be accommodated by June 1.
