WKU Apartment Application

WKU Kentucky Street Apartment Application Process

Application for an on-campus apartment is a separate application from applying for a residence hall room. If you are a current on-campus residence hall resident and are planning on staying on campus during the upcoming academic year, regardless of WKU apartment application status, please ensure that you also re-apply for on-campus housing in February/March during housing renewal.

Apartment Application

Applications are accepted in the fall for two weeks beginning the first Monday in October, and in the spring for two weeks beginning the first Monday in February on Topnet.

How to Apply:

  1. Log into Topnet
  2. Under the "Student Services" menu, select "My Apartment Portal"
  3. Select "Apartment Wait List"
  4. Select "add me to the wait list,"
  5. Complete an apartment application when directed
  6. Update the application each semester to maintain the validity of your application for the current upcoming semester

Applicants should review the WKU Apartments Lease. Students will sign an individual lease upon receiving notification via email that their application has been received and an apartment is being offered to them and a monetary deposit has been received to hold the apartment.

** Students with a past due account at WKU will not be able to apply unless they pay their student bill in full. Contact WKU Billings Office at (270)745-6381 if you have questions about your bill. 

Application Validity

Initial application valid until:

  1. When an apartment accommodation offer is made, or
  2. Until the latest acceptable move-in date noted on the application, or
  3. 6 months from the earliest move-in date noted on the application.
  4. Applicant terminates application.

An applicant, who wants to remain on the wait list beyond the time noted above, may renew the application before it expires by filling out an application renewal form. See below.

Assignment Priorities

Applications will be given priority based on the date received.
