Are freshmen guaranteed housing? Are you able to live on campus all four years?

    1. I don't know.
    2. Yeah you can, but I heard most people live outside of the school in the last 2-3 years.

    ^returning students get priority over freshmen. Most people live outside after first yr or two, but UW has specific upperclassmen dorms too.
    They don't guarantee housing, but they try to fit everyone in so expect some triples in doubles rooms. The earlier you send in housing app the better result you'll get.

    ^Agree. If you are priority 1 (like honors, emerging leaders and etc) you are definitely guaranteed. An adviser informed me that. Also for people applying early, they are considered priority 2 so their chances are higher so don't know whether its guaranteed. You can get more info here. UW Housing and Food Services
