Apply for On-Campus Housing

Welcome to the Spring 2023 LightHouse Commons Housing Application

  • This Housing Application is for very limited Spring 2023 housing possibilities ONLY.

    • Applying for Spring 2023 Housing and Paying the $50 application fee does not provide any guarantees an offer of housing will occur.
  • If offered housing and a student secures through deposit process, a student is only contracted for the Spring 2023 Semester ONLY.

    • Should a student be assigned and cancel their housing contract cancellation fees will be assessed to a student’s account for terminating their annual housing contract early.

Spring 2023 Housing Dates

Understanding FSW’s Housing Contract and Spring 2023 Semester Housing Costs:

  • Students who are offered Spring 2023 Semester housing and secure it by submitting their $200 non-refundable housing deposit, if and when requested, are contracted for Spring 2023 Semester ONLY.
  • It is important that a student understands the financial obligation of living on campus before accepting housing and signing their housing contract.

    • For example, a student who lives in a quad will be billed $3,290 for the Spring 2023 Semester.

      • As a reminder Tuition and Fees are always paid first with Financial Aid, Cash Payments, Scholarships, etc. and any other remaining funds will go to help pay any housing costs and housing fees (i.e. activity and cleaning fee).

Important Application/Processing Information

  • Students must be FULLY Admitted/Accepted to FSW with access to their student portal to apply for on-campus housing.
  • A student’s Spring 2023 Semester housing application will not be reviewed without payment of the non-refundable $50 application fee. This payment can be made online after the completion of the application.

    • Please see the bullet below if you have already paid the application fee for Fall 2022 Semester previously but were not assigned housing.

      • Those students that applied and paid their $50 application fee for the Fall 2022 Semester and were not able to secure housing will not be required to pay the application fee again.

        • Once you submit your application please exit from the payment window that requires payment of the application fee. Your application will still come through our system.

          • REMINDER: The above bullet is ONLY for those that submitted their application and application fee for housing for the Fall 2022 Semester and were unable to secure a space. All other applicants, NEW and those who did not pay the fee in the Fall, must pay the application fee to be considered.
    • If an applying student fails to pay the application fee, as required, the Office of Housing & Residence Life will not review their application until the application fee is paid.
  • Once the application has been submitted and the non-refundable $50 application fee is paid, students will receive an email confirmation via their FSW Buc’s email.
  • Applications are considered in the order in which the above steps are completed.

    • Please understand that failing to complete a step will lessen the probability of receiving housing for the Spring 2023 Semester.
  • If offered housing for the Spring 2023 Semester students will be notified via their FSW Buc’s email as well as contacted via the telephone number provided on the submitted application.

    • These offers will begin after the Thanksgiving Holiday and will go through the first week of Spring 2023 Semester classes as availability allows.

      • It is of important note that when the College is closed for Winter Break a student will only be offered housing, if availability allows, via their FSW Buc’s email.
      • If a student does not hear about being assigned housing from the Office of Housing & Residence Life this does not mean a student will not be offered housing as missed deposit periods and later cancellations could provide opportunities through initial assignment offers up until (and after) Spring move-in day.
  • To secure an offered housing assignment a student will be required to submit a non-refundable $200 housing deposit by the deadline provided via their FSW Buc’s email. Failure to pay this deposit within the required timeframe will result in the forfeiture of the offered space

    • Under no circumstances will extensions be permitted to pay the room deposit as the demand to live on campus is extremely high.
