During the third week of each semester, students are allowed to participate in an open room change process. More information regarding that process will be sent to student’s emails at the start of the semester. Students should reach out to their Area Coordinator for more information if they feel they are in an emergency situation and need a room change.

Important Housing Policies

We recognize – and research supports – that undergraduate students thrive academically and socially when living on campus in community with their peers. On-campus living engages students in co-curricular activities, cultivates a sense of belonging, helps foster independence, and supports the development of skills essential to academic success.   

For that reason, Widener University requires that traditional, full-time undergraduate students live on campus during their first two years of study, unless they are living at their permanent address with their parents or guardians. 

If you do not register for on-campus housing as a first- or second-year student, we consider you to be a commuter living at your permanent residence with a parent or guardian. Commuters may qualify for less financial aid. In addition, commuters are ineligible for some Widener aid programs, including the Campus Experience Grant.   

Married students, students with dependent children, students with at least two years of military service, and students age 24 or older are exempt from this policy.

Students wishing to commuter from the address of a parent or legal guardian should NOT submit a housing application. No other action needs to be taken with the Office of Residence Life. Students are strongly encouraged to reach out to the Office of Financial Aid to discuss what impact changing from a residential to commuter student may have on their financial aid. Commuter students may qualify for less financial aid. In addition, commuter students are ineligible for some Widener aid programs, including the Campus Experience Grant. 

Undergraduate students who have commuted or lived on-campus for two years are eligible to live off-campus their junior and senior years. Students interested in living off-campus should NOT submit a housing application. First-year and sophomore students who have not met the residency requirement criteria are NOT permitted to live off-campus. First year and sophomore students who may be found living in off-campus housing may be referred for disciplinary action.

Smoking Policy

In July 2010, the university implemented a tobacco-free policy that prohibits the use of tobacco anywhere on campus.

Alcohol Policy

It is our policy that all first-year residence halls are alcohol-free residences. This means that the possession and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages by anyone regardless of age is prohibited. The vast majority of our first-years are under age 21, so we believe that this policy will help to improve students’ living experiences in first-year residences. 

Please see the Student Drug and Alcohol Policy in the Student Handbook for a complete description of Widener's rules and regulations covering alcohol.

With the exception of fish tanks under 10 gallons, all animals—except for service and assistance animals—are not permitted in residence halls, off-campus graduate housing, or other university facilities.

Review the Service and Assistance Animal Policy in the Student Handbook for more details.

  • Pets, unless specified above in the Pet Policy
  • Weapons, firearms, or explosive devices

Electronics & Electrical Appliances

  • George Foreman™ grills, toaster ovens, griddles, or any open exposed heating elements
  • Power cords without a multi-plug power strip with an internal circuit breaker

Decorations & Room/Furniture Modifications

Returning Student Housing Application & Processes

  • February 27th:  The housing application for the 2023-2024 academic year will open on the housing portal. During this time students can form groups to select housing together, indicate interest in specialty housing communities, rank their preference for communities and housing types, and update their information in the housing portal.
  • March 15th: Students with a completed housing application will receive their housing priority number and selection time via email. The information will also be posted in the housing portal the following day on March 16th.
  • March 20th-24th: Housing selection will take place from 9am on March 20th through 5pm on March 24th. Students in a group should have the member with the lowest priority number select housing for the entire group. Only one person in a group needs to select housing for the whole group. This should happen in consultation with members of the other group. Within a week of a student selecting housing, their room assignment for the 2023-2024 academic year is viewable in their housing portal. 
  • Early April: Students will receive an email confirmation of their 2023-2024 housing information as well as information about the cancellation and room change process. 
     

Housing applications are submitted through the Housing Portal. Here, we'll ask you questions about your living preferences with a roommate and other interests; this questionnaire helps to place you with another student with similar interests.

To log into the Housing Portal, use your Widener credentials. 

For returning undergraduate students, if you would like to select your own housing, applications are due by 12pm on March 15th. After this time, housing applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the residence halls reach capacity. The residence life team will manually assign you housing based on your preference and space availability if the application is submitted after March 15th. If you submit your application after this date, we may not be able to honor specific room or roommate requests. Please note that requests for specific accommodations such as single and apartment-style communities may not be met with request submitted after May 15th.

The Housing Portal is powered by StarRez, a world-leading software that provides the most intuitive and easy-to-use system for students to apply for housing and find or select their own roommate.

Of course, you can! Students are welcome to select a preferred roommate. Every effort will be made to accommodate this request, as long as both students indicate a wish to room with one another and their housing applications are submitted by the deadline. 

We have an open room change period in the beginning of the semester. During this period, students can meet with their area coordinator and talk about the room change process. If there are vacant spaces available and the area coordinator approves the room change, the students may change rooms.

Steps to Select a Preferred Roommate

Directions to select an intended roommate are part of the Housing Application. You will be directed to create a group with your intended roommate. Please note that once the group is created, requests need to be accepted by the individual who created the group in order for residence life to honor the request.

Once a student occupies his or her assigned room, the roommate assignment may not be changed unless the Residence Life office gives approval. 

What happens if you don’t select a roommate?

Students who submit an application by March 15th, but do not select a preferred roommate or suitemates will have the opportunity to select their own housing on the last day of housing selection. Please note that limited housing including single rooms and apartment-style communities may be available at this time. 

Students who submit an application after March 15th and do not select a preferred roommate are assigned roommates by the Residence Life office based on responses to the roommate matching questions within the housing application so that we can match compatible students.

What do I do if I want to change rooms?

Beginning in early April, waitlist forms will be available for students to express interest in moving into a single room or apartment-style community. Student requests will be processed throughout the summer if a space becomes available. The requests will be processed in the order in which they are received.

Students requesting a room change after they have selected housing for the upcoming school year may email residencelife@widener.edu and an appointment will be scheduled before the end of the academic year to discuss the possibility and options of the room change. Our office will try our best to work students in these circumstances, but cannot guarantee room changes after a student has selected their own housing.

After July 1st, the Office of Residence Life is unable to accommodate room change requests until the open room change period starts after the University census date the third week of the semester. After the University census date, students will have the opportunity to participate in the open room change process for up to two weeks where they can submit a room change request through the housing portal. The office considers requests in the order in which they are received followed by academic standing. If there in adequate residential space in the halls at this time, students without a roommate in a double room may be provided the opportunity to buyout the other space in their room for the semester or academic year. More information about room buyout will be sent in the email about open room change if space permits. Students are unable to buyout a room before this time.

Outside of the open room change period, students can request a room change through the housing portal. However, students may need to meet with their Area Coordinator or participate in a roommate mediation before a room change may occur. During the last 3 weeks of fall semester, a room change freeze period is in place with only room changes for emergency situations processed until the University census date takes place the third week of the spring semester. For more information regarding room changes, please email residencelife@widener.edu.
 

Getting Along with Your Roommate

Once you move in, you and your roommate will meet with your Resident Assistant (RA) to complete a roommate agreement. This agreement opens up the lines of communication to discuss living preferences and talk about any differences you might have.

The Residence Life office reserves the right to reassign any student to a different room at any time. While every attempt will be made to notify the resident student of a change in room assignment prior to his or her arrival on campus, situations may arise that make this impossible.

The Student Accessibility Services Office is here to help accommodate individual needs that necessitate special housing accommodations.
