Room Selection 2022-2023

University Housing Plans for 2022-2023

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, and is hopefully winding down, CWRU is planning to continue with normal occupancy for University Housing for the 2022-2023 academic year. All suites and apartments will be utilized for their designed occupancy. 

With the uncertainty of the pandemic, housing plans could change at any point between now and the start of the fall semester. Information will be communicated to students via email as soon as decisions are made.

Housing applications must be completed online, making it easier for groups of students to sign up together, and for students currently residing off-campus to participate. Our room selection flowchart, under the "Rising Second-Year" and "Rising Upper-Class Student" sections, will help guide you through the process and determine what option is right for you.

If you have any questions, contact University Housing at 216.368.3780, by email at or visit our Office in 24 Thwing Center. We will keep this site up to date with the latest information as it becomes available.

Housing Application

2022-2023 Housing Application is now available!

Rising Second Year Students are required to live on campus, per the university's two year residency requirement. 

For Rising Upper-class students and Current Upper-class students, by submitting an individual housing application, you indicate that you wish to live on campus for the 2022-2023 academic year, and wish to participate in the housing selection process. 

In the event you are unable to obtain a space through room selection, you can sign up to be placed on an upper-class housing waitlist. The waitlist will indicate you still want to live on campus.  We will fill any available on-campus housing first before looking at off-campus housing locations. 

You may also submit a housing release request after room selection is over.  Please note that if you do select or are placed in a room, release requests will not automatically be granted, and will be reviewed on a case by case basis.  

Medical Accommodation 

Students with disabilities may be eligible for housing accommodations that meet their unique needs outside the classroom. Medical accommodations are approved by the Office of Disability Resources.

Documentation is required to explain the diagnosis, history, treatment protocol, and need for a specific accommodation based on the disability. Housing accommodations are determined individually based on the documentation provided. If you have a current accommodation and wish to discuss your housing options for next year, please contact the Office of Disability Resources prior to spring break.

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.

Sustainability House

Sustainability House is an intentional living community focused on creating a sustainable lifestyle in a not-inherently-green house (Wade Manor, at the corner of Wade Park Ave. and E. 115th Ave). Between 5 and 10 students will be selected based on a short application to live in this 6 bedroom, 3.5 bath home. Singles or doubles are available depending on interest and availability. An interest in sustainability is required, although broad experience is not!  Please contact the Sustainability Office at for any questions regarding this option.
