  • Click the myHousing icon, located in the top right corner.

Returning Students || Fall 2017-Spring 2018
Returning students must complete the reapplication process by May 1 or risk losing hall/room assignment, lose priority room selection as a returning student, and may have to pay an additional deposit and reapply for housing.

  • March 22-26: Reapply for the SAME room (or lose it) - visit myHousing in the myBuff portal
  • March 27-29: Those displaced by construction projects (students will receive an email if they are affected),
     reapply for a NEW room or hall - visit myHousing in the myBuff portal
  • March 30-April 5: Reapply for a NEW room or hall - visit myHousing in the myBuff portal
  • March 22-April 20*:  Moving off campus, graduating or leaving WTAMU - visit the Office of Residential Living

*Keep in mind that if you fall under the University housing requirement, you may not qualify to move-off campus unless you are graduating or withdrawing.  There are housing exemptions available for students who qualify; exemptions are considered but rarely granted.  It is recommended that you sign-up for an on-campus room even though you apply for an exemption; if you are not approved for the exemption, you will at least have an on-campus room you WANT to be in.  For more information regarding the housing requirement and exemptions, visit the Requirements page.
