Transfer Students

Once you have been accepted to Case Western Reserve University you will gain access to the University Roadmap.  The University Roadmap will provide access to the Housing Application for Spring 2023.  We will begin accepting spring applications starting on Monday, November 7.  You can list building and roommate preferences on your application, however, we will make placements based on what is open and available at that time.  Room placements will be completed by December 30, 2022.

Case Western Reserve University has a two-year residency requirement. All first- and second-year unmarried undergraduate students who do not live at a parent's permanent residence within 40 miles of campus must live on-campus and participate in the University board plan. If you are eligible to commute, you can indicate this on the housing checklist of the roadmap.  

Medical Accommodations

If you have an approved medical accommodation, please contact our office to discuss your assignment.

Housing accommodations may include but are not limited to air conditioning in a residence hall room, a wheelchair accessible room, a visual fire alarm, or assignment to a single room.

If you feel you need a specific medical accommodation, please review the information from the Office of Disability Resources about obtaining approval for medical accommodation.

Gender Inclusive Housing

Gender Inclusive Housing allows transgender students, students exploring gender identity, non-binary, gender non-conforming students, and their allies to live together in the residence halls.
