Graduate Housing (Postgraduate Housing)

Whitworth is offering postgraduate students the opportunity to live in a campus-owned house located close to campus. All applicants must submit an individual application (below); there is no group application. However, within this application, a student may name desired housemate(s) should they already have someone in mind. Housing will be offered as space is available, first come first served. Applicants will be notified via their Whitworth email regarding their specific placement or if they've been moved to a waitlist. Spaced are offered on a first-come, first-served basis

Note: Whitworth does not provide housing for partners nor families. Pets are not allowed in campus housing.

About the Houses: All Whitworth houses are furnished with bedroom furniture including a bed, desk and chair for each resident, a sofa, loveseat, coffee and end tables, and a dining room table and chairs. Your house has shared bathroom(s), kitchen and other shared areas. The housing price includes all utilities (including wireless internet). Cable TV is not provided nor may it be contracted out. You (the student) are required to provide your own cleaning supplies. The university does not supply brooms nor vacuums. While we aim to make the best roommate matches possible, it is ultimately up to you to make your housing arrangement work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Break closures

Postgraduate housing does not close when the rest of campus closes (e.g., Christmas, Spring and Summer break). Postgraduate housing is open and available 24/7 provided the leaseholder is in good standing with the university.

Checking in/out

Both checking in to and out of a house will always be done Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Weekend check-ins/outs are not permitted unless the 1st or 16th of the month falls on a weekend.

Cleaning supplies

The university does not offer cleaning supplies. Keeping a house clean is the responsibility of the postgraduate student.


Whitworth University offers bedroom (bed frame, twin extra-long mattress, desk, desk chair, dresser and wardrobe – if no closet available –) and dining room (table and chairs) furniture. Students are welcome to bring their own furniture; however, removal of non-university owned furniture is ultimately the postgraduate student's responsibility. Furniture may not be disposed of on campus.

Guest policy

The housing office has established a policy and guidelines regarding overnight guests of Whitworth students living on campus. All student hosts of overnight guests must register their guest within 12 hours of their arrival. To register a guest, use the form found here. The right of a student to live in reasonable privacy takes precedence over the privilege of his or her roommate to entertain a guest. Additionally, the university provides and maintains its residences for the use of legitimate rent-paying students. For more information visit
