Early Arrival/Late Stay

Early Arrival

Willamette University has many demands on its housing accommodations during the summer months including major residential renovations, repairs and general maintenance, scheduled events, summer conferences and hosting area visitors for the ECLIPSE. Preparing the residence halls, apartments and sororities for occupancy requires many hands and extra hours. Our facilities staff works hard to prepare the campus for your arrival and will have your room/apartment ready for occupancy by the start date of your housing agreement.

In order to facilitate Jump Start programs, Opening Days and residence hall check-in, as well as to get ready for regional athletic competitions, a limited number of students are pre-approved to arrive on campus when their training/pre-orientation program begins. Students participating in an early program will be registered by and receive check-in day/time instructions from their coach/program coordinator. Students who arrive early without permission from an early program coach/program coordinator are responsible for their own accommodations.

New students are welcomed to Willamette University for our Opening Days program on Wednesday, August 23, 2017. Events during Opening Days are designed to help students enter into college life at Willamette and are exclusive to those students. Returning student check-in begins on Saturday, August 26th.

Students requesting early check-in before their assigned arrival date must apply for a housing agreement extension.  If approved, the cost is $100 per night. 

Late Stay

The check-out deadline for Spring semester, 2017 is noon, Wednesday, May 10, 2017.  Students who have a need to be on campus after 12 noon on May 10th, must meet with their Area Coordinator by Friday, May 5th to request an extension.  Extensions are not guaranteed.  If granted, the cost is $100 per night.  Exceptions are Commencement participants. Students participating in a late stay program (spring athlete competing, commencement band, volunteer) will be registered with Housing by their coach/program coordinator.
