Student Housing


How do I apply for Student Housing?

You can apply online for housing once you have been admitted to Fort Lewis College. As part of your application, you are able to request different housing types, rooms, and roommates. You can submit your $150 Housing Deposit as part of the online application. We recommend applying as soon as you are able, so you have as many options as possible. Some of our more popular options fill up quickly, however there is no deadline to apply.   

What types of Student Housing are available on campus?

Fort Lewis College offers multiple different types of housing on campus. We offer both suite and traditional-style rooms, singles or doubles, apartment style, Gender Inclusive Housing, and Living-Learning Communities. The choice is yours! Check out our Housing Options menu tab and see what types of housing are available to you.

How do I request a roommate?

You are able to review, email, and request a roommate through your online housing application. Roommate requests are granted when space is available and the mutual request are made within a similar timeframe. If you are not sure about how to request a roommate, or nervous about the process, the College will help pair you with someone. We do our best to place students together who have similar interests and room preferences.

Can I choose my room on campus?

Students who apply prior to May 1st are able to self-select their room space as part of the online housing application. You are able to see which rooms are still available as part of the application process. If you find yourself wanting to change your room during the year, you can coordinate a room change with the Student Housing Office. 

When do I know about my housing placement?

If you self-select a specific room through the online housing application, you will know your placement immediately. The College confirms building assignments through email in early June. A second email is sent out early August which details room assignment, roommate(s) contact information, and detailed move in instructions.
