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.
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. Set up your NETID.
