We encourage students to confirm your accommodations before you arrive in the U.S. Students should not plan to arrive without having housing accommodations secured, as on-campus housing is not guaranteed and it can take at least a couple of weeks to find suitable off-campus housing.

On-Campus Housing

UW Bothell Residence Life offers furnished, on-campus apartments that include a kitchen, bathroom, washer and dryer! Be part of a growing, vibrant residential community where you live with your peers, and meet new friends. In order to apply for housing, you will need your UW NETID.  If you still need to set up your NETID, please click here.
