Step 7: Apply for Housing|Study Abroad

It is very important that you apply for housing before you come to Laramie!

Two types of on-campus housing are available for Exchange and Partner Program Students:

There are often waiting lists for on-campus apartments, so if you would like to rent an apartment, you must apply early!

  • For students studying at UW for one semester, the lease term for apartments is:
    • August - December for the fall semester
    • January - June for the spring semester
    • August - July for Bison Run Apartments
  • For students studying at UW for an academic year, the lease term for apartments is:
    • August - June
    • August - July for Bison Run Apartments
  • For students studying at UW for an academic year, the lease term for residence halls is:
    • Fall and Spring semesters (the contract is for the entire academic year)
      • If you are staying at UW for the academic year and choose to live in a residence hall in the fall, you must also stay in the hall during the spring.
    • Students studying at UW for one semester only will be released from their residence hall contract at the end of that semester

To learn more about these, as well as costs and dining plans, visit the Residence Life and Dining Services web page.

To apply for a Residence Hall or Apartment, go to your Destination You-W tab on WyoWeb.  The online application can be found there.

**Housing in the Bison Run Apartments is very limited and is not guaranteed to all applicants.  Please consider this before applying to Bison Run.  Contracts in Bison Run go from August - July; there are no exceptions.  If you are coming for the fall semester only, do not apply to Bison Run.

You will not be permitted to apply for housing until you have been admitted to the University of Wyoming.

Please be aware that UW housing contracts are binding legal documents.  Once you have signed a housing contract, you will not be released from the contract until the rental term is complete.  Please be aware that by accepting a residence hall or apartment offer, you are signing an electronic contract.

If you plan to arrive in Laramie several days before the mandatory international student orientation, will be living in a residence hall, and need temporary housing, please contact Residence Life and Dining Services.  They can make arrangements for you.  Please notify the Study Abroad Office of your travel plans so that we can verify that your accommodations are in order.
