For the health and safety of our students and community, Early Fall Start 2021 will be offered exclusively through remote learning.

For more information, see Why Attend Early Fall Start Online.


students in dorm roomAlthough Early Fall Start classes will be offered remotely, residence hall housing is still available for students who want or need a place to live on campus. 

As an Early Fall Start student, you are eligible to live in UW campus housing while taking your course, whether or not you plan to live on campus during the school year. Living in campus housing is not required.

If you plan to live in a fraternity or sorority during autumn quarter, you may still live on campus during Early Fall Start.

Early Fall Start housing and dining costs are separate from the course fee. The housing application deadlines are different—and earlier—than the course registration deadlines. Housing dates do not exactly mirror program dates. 

Learn all about your Early Fall Start housing options, including dates and rates, on Housing & Food Services' Early Fall Start information page


If you live in a UW residence hall, you are required to have a dining account. Account details are described in the Early Fall Start Housing Guide.

There are many options for meals at the UW, both on and off campus. UW Dining offers a wide variety of different restaurants and markets.
