Get started

To use the online campus housing system, you must be admitted to Evergreen and have an evergreen.edu email address.

How to reserve a room

  • Log in to the campus housing application.

  • Fill out our form providing basic information about yourself, and select your meal plan for the year.

    • Meal plan requirements vary, based upon where you live.  Students living in the residence halls without kitchens must select a large plan that at least covers most of their meals.  Students living in the Apartments without kitchens may also select smaller meal plans as low as $250/quarter in declining balance.

  •  Select your own space in the apartments from a map, or tell us your preferences and join the list to be assigned a space in the residence halls.

  • Follow the instructions to make the required payment within 48 hours and lock in your room.

    • A non-refundable booking fee and non-refundable rent down payment will be assessed to your student account.

      • $250 rent down payment is applied to your first term's rent

      • $50 booking fee pays for system processing.

    • If you do not pay the non-refundable booking fee and non-refundable rent down payment in full, these charges will be backed out of your student account and you will not have a room.

    • You may fill out a Deferred Payment Agreement (PDF) to defer the rent down payment and booking fee until September.  See more information about this form at the bottom of this page, or contact us for more information about the deferred payment agreement. 

Check your Evergreen email

After you apply for housing, we’ll send important messages to your evergreen.edu email address.

You can forward your evergreen.edu email to another address.

Offices across the college send information to your evergreen.edu address that is essential to your success at Evergreen. Housing information sent via email includes:

  • Housing application confirmation.
  • Information about rent and meal plan billing.
  • Roommate contact information available in early September.
  • How to check-in.
  • Other information about living on campus.

Canceling your application

If you’ve already booked a room but change your mind and are not planning on living with us, cancel your application and avoid being billed for rent.

What if I can’t pay the booking fee and rent down payment within 48 hours?

Download the Deferred Payment Agreement (PDF)fill it out, and bring a signed copy (or email a photo of a signed copy) to the housing office. The non-refundable booking fee and non-refundable rent down payment will still be assessed to your student account, but they won’t be due until you receive your financial aid and rent is due. As we are holding a room for you that we are not able to offer to other students, the charges are non-refundable even if you decide to cancel your room.
