Apply for Housing

Applying for housing at Walsh University is easy! Follow the steps listed below to complete your housing intake materials. If you should have any questions regarding the application process, please contact the Assistant Director of Residence Life 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.

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 and a representative from Residence Life to discuss eligibility and placement options.

Please keep in mind that qualifying for disability related housing accommodation does not guarantee a student a room assignment or the room assignment of his/her choice. The student is responsible for submitting his/her housing deposit, application, and contract before deadlines set forth by Residence Life. Students are strongly encourage to submit all requests prior to July 1st.

For more information regarding this process, please visit the Office of Accessibility Services or contact Meredith Soduk, Director of Accessibility Services, at (330) 490-7529 or msoduk@walsh.edu.
