Apply for Housing

Applying for housing at Walsh University is easy! Follow the 3 steps listed below to complete your housing intake materials. If you should have any questions regarding the application process, please contact Ben Daleiden, Coordinator of University Housing Placements, at (330) 490-7107.

Step 1 - Housing Deposit

The $200.00 Housing Deposit serves as a contractual guarantee and as a damage deposit. A full refund of the deposit is made to students who enter the residence halls, fulfill the academic year contract, and elect not to return to Walsh for the next academic year (provided no balance remains on their bill). A full refund of the deposit is also made to students who cancel their room reservation by contacting the Office of Residence Life, in writing, prior to July 1st (preceding the fall semester), or prior to December 1st (preceding the spring semester) for those leaving the institution. Please read the Housing Contract for all the details concerning the Housing Deposit Refund Policy.

Step 2 - Housing Application

The Housing Application allows you to select residence hall, meal plan and roommate preferences. Walsh University Residence Life makes every reasonable effort to accommodate your requests, however we cannot guarantee housing assignment or roommate requests. If you do not have a specific roommate in mind, we will use the information you provide in the Housing Preferences section of the application to match you with a roommate with similar preferences.

Discrimination based on race, color, creed, religion, disability, or national origin is contrary to the philosophy and polices of Walsh University and violates civil rights laws. Information of this nature is not taken into account when making roommate assignments.

Step 3 - Housing Contract and Medical History Form

The Housing Contract may be the first legal agreement a student has ever signed. It is vital that students and parents carefully read the contract before signing it. The University Housing Contract must be signed and submitted before arrival to the hall. The contract is for room and board and is binding for the entire academic year.

The Medical History Form is required to be completed by each student living in a residence hall. This form will provide the essential information necessary for Walsh University to ensure student safety. It important, therefore, that you complete this questionnaire fully and accurately.

Special Note: Housing Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

Walsh University is committed to fostering an institutional climate in which qualified students with disabilities have full access to the academic environment, including residence halls.

To make a formal request for housing accommodations:

  • Please complete and submit a Request for Accommodations Form 
  • Submit current documentation of a disability completed by a qualified professional. Documentation must substantiate a diagnosed impairment that is a current substantial limitation to a major life activity as it relates to housing needs.
  • Schedule an intake meeting with the Director of Accessibility Services
