Hall Waitlists

For those students who opted into a hall waitlist, we will reassign as space becomes available that meets your request. If we are able to meet that request and reassign, we will remove you from other similar hall waitlists so we can meet the requests of other students.

We work on waitlists all summer long, so please be patient with the assignment process.  Anyone reassigned from a waitlist will receive an email with the new assignment. 

Waitlists are currently closed due to their length.


Need to Cancel Your Housing?

Please include:

  1. Your full name
  2. WKU ID Number
