Housing & Residence Life has been actively preparing to safely open Court 17 Residence Hall to students for the upcoming Autumn quarter. Multiple communications have been sent to students' email addresses. You can review the communications below.
We wanted to share an update to our processes as we work through our occupancy plans for the upcoming autumn quarter. We will be following similar guidelines to the Seattle campus and will begin to send out offers at the beginning of August.
As we have stated in our previous communication, we will be accommodating changes to our occupancy that will reduce risks of illness and support health and safety measures put forth by the state. With this being the plan, we will be tentatively placing students in spaces that support a private bathroom per resident. This means that our 1 bedroom and studio spaces will house 1 student, and 2 bedroom units will house 2 students (our 2 bedroom units have 2 bathrooms). If you would like to cancel your application as a result of potentially being housed with one other roommate, please email us so that we can process a cancellation.
We understand that this means we will not be able to initially offer housing to all our applicants that applied by the priority deadline and our waitlist may be extensive. We also understand that not all requests within your applications will be able to be accommodated due to these changes.
If you are to receive an offer, you are signing with the knowledge that this plan is only temporary and this situation is very fluid. If health and safety in the community improves, and we are permitted to increase our occupancy, you may receive a roommate(s) in future quarters.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with further questions.
Autumn 2020 Housing Rates
Hello Court 17 applicants,
Thank you for your continued understanding and your patience while we have developed a safe plan to welcome students into Court 17 come autumn quarter. This email is to update all applicants of rates that that will be in effect when we send out housing offers. The quarterly rate will continue to be perperson based. We will be working to assign residents to their preferred space stated on applications, but please know that these preferences are not always a guarantee.
Academic Year Cost
Shared 2 Bed / 2 Bath (2 people per unit)
Private Studio / 1 Bath (1 person per unit)
Private 1 Bed / 1 Bath (1 person per unit)
As a reminder, we will be assigning 1 person to studios and 1 bedrooms, and 2 students to 2 bedroom units (as they have 2 bathrooms). There have been many questions related to roommate assignments for shared 2 bedroom spaces – if we can accommodate preferred roommate groups to these spaces, we will offer the same space to these residents. Please be aware though that not all students applied at the same time and many factors other will be in place when assigning students. This includes returning status to Court 17, distance to campus, etc.
We also have been getting questions related to studios and 1 bedrooms, and residents wanting to live with another student they have requested. For autumn quarter at minimum, we are not accommodating this. Our proposed plan is to house students with a private bathroom, and housing 2 students in studios and 1 bedrooms does not meet this requirement. If health conditions are to improve and state mandated requirements lifted in future quarters, we may begin to offer housing to students on our waitlist and accommodate roommate preferences.
Additionally, our residents will still be required to be registered for a minimum of 6 credits to remain eligible for housing.
These updates may change many of your decisions to accept or decline an offer. If you wish to cancel your application at this time, please email us to let us know. We will be moving forward with offers over the next couple weeks. If you do plan to accept an offer if you are to receive one, please take action immediately after receiving your offer. Next steps will be listed in your offer email.
Please never hesitate to reach out with questions. Although the circumstances surrounding autumn quarter have shifted, we are so excited to welcome students to court 17 and support you all in your academic endeavors.
