The Process to Obtain Housing for the Upcoming Academic Year:

Apply for Housing

To live on-campus housing, ALL students, regardless of where they plan to live or what housing process they go through, MUST register online via eRezLife by completing the "RETURNING STUDENTS - Fall 2024 Housing Application."

  • The housing application is available beginning February 1,  2024.
  • The housing application MUST be completed by April 8, 2024, to participate in the housing lottery.  Students enrolled at W&L who do not complete their application on time and are required to live on campus will receive the last time slot within their class year.
  • Students participating in the Greek and Theme Housing processes MUST have their housing application submitted when they submit their Theme House Application or Chapter House Roster. Students who do not complete their application on time will not be placed in Theme or Greek Housing and will be entered into the lottery per the above instructions.

The housing application in eRezLife is located under Recommended Actions when you log in, OR you can click on "Housing Overview" on the left-hand menu and then select the green "Apply Now" button next to the term you intend on applying for.

Students participating in fall study abroad are NOT eligible to participate in housing processes for the Fall. Fall study abroad students who return to campus for winter term 2025 will have a separate application process during the fall term. Students who plan to be on campus for fall 2024 but abroad for winter 2025 must participate in the upcoming lottery/selection. For more information, visit the Study Abroad FAQs website.
