Please Note:

The application for a WKU on-campus apartment is a separate application from applying for a residence hall room. If you are a current on-campus resident and are planning on living 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.

  • Applications will be given priority based on the date received.

  • Offers for apartments are made by email. Correspondence will be sent to the student's WKU email address. Applicants are to respond through their WKU email.

  • To accept an offer, the applicant must respond to wkuapartments@wku.edu by date stated in offer and without delay. The appropriate leasing personnel must receive the required documents and monetary consideration as stated in the offer, or the offer will be considered void.

  • A one-time $75 application fee is required upon acceptance of an offered apartment to any resident new to WKU Housing. If you currently live on campus, your previously paid application fee is already on file. 


** Students with a past due account at WKU at the time of leasing will not be offered an apartment. Bills must be paid in full before an apartment can be offered. Contact the Office of Student Billing & Account Services at (270)745-6381 if you have questions about your bill. 


 Students will sign an individual lease upon receiving notification via email that their application has been received, an apartment is being offered to them, and the $75 application fee has been received to hold the apartment. 


After the apartments are full, the remaining applicants will be placed on a waiting list that is active for the semester.

The waiting list does not roll over each semester; students must apply each term to be eligible to live in the apartments. 


Changing Accommodation Preferences

After submitting an initial application, some applicants may consider changing their accommodation preferences. If you would like to request a change, please send an email to wkuapartments@wku.edu.


Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

Many properties are accessible for students with disabilities. If you have special needs because of a disability, you must note this on your application. The Student Accessibility Resource Center can help you with more information and resources.
