Housing Application Information | Webster University

Housing Application Information

Campus housing applications are generally accepted throughout the year; however, given the popularity of living on campus and the variety of living options, the general rule is, "the earlier the application is submitted, the better."

Freshmen applications for housing need to coincide with the application for admission to the University. Current and returning students can re-apply for housing for an upcoming year during the spring semester of the current academic year.

Application and Contract for On-Campus Housing:

If you are a prospective resident that is not currently a student and has never been enrolled in classes:

  • Upon being accepted into the university, you will receive your Candidate Login. This is given to you from the Information Technology (IT) Office. You will use this Candidate Login to set up your Webster University Connections password via the Microsoft 365 set-up portal under the "Let's get started! Just 4 steps" section. After you have both your Connections username and password, please visit https://housing.webster.edu/PatronWeb. On this website, you will log in with your Connections information and complete the application for the academic year during which you would like to live on campus.
  • If you have not received this account/do not remember it, or are experiencing any issues, please contact the IT Support Desk at 314-246-5995 or via support@webster.edu.

Application and Agreement for On-Campus Housing:

  • See above for the online application link and login information.
  • It is important that you submit the application form as soon as possible, along with a check or money order for $175, made payable to Webster University. This amount ($175) includes a non-refundable application fee ($25) and a damage deposit ($150).
  • Once we have received your application and check, we will acknowledge receipt.
  • Applications received before the priority deadline of April 1 are generally assured a space in campus housing.
  • If we receive your application after April 1, you could be temporarily wait-listed.
  • Your room assignment and roommate information will be sent in mid-July via email. If you are placed in campus housing, cancellation charges will apply if you choose to cancel your housing contract. By signing the housing application, you agree to the terms and conditions of the housing contract.
  • Please be aware that this form constitutes a binding agreement. If you receive a space in housing starting in the fall semester, you are contracted for that space for the entire academic year.  If you receive a space in the spring semester, you are contracted for the entire spring semester.  Should you wish to terminate this contract after you have moved in, you will complete a Request for Termination Form.
  • If you have been accepted academically and are waiting for acceptance to a specific program (i.e. Conservatory or Film Production), it is essential to submit your housing application as soon as you can. Delay could prevent receiving on-campus housing.
