Fall Semester Applicants

Spring Semester Applicants

All New First Time Freshmen, Transfers, and Continuing students applying for Spring housing should utilize the spring application to apply. Due to availability, New First Time Freshmen and Transfer students applying for spring housing will not be given the opportunity to select their roommate or building preference. All students will be assigned to an available bed based on their student type (New First Time Freshman, Transfer, etc.).

Winston-Salem State University has a 2-year (4 semester) residency requirement for all WSSU students that enter the university as a New First Time Freshmen (NFTF). If you are a New First Time Freshmen and do not wish to reside on campus, you must complete a Housing Exemption.

It is important to note, a student has not completed the application process unless they have completed the application and submitted a payment. After completing the application process, students should receive two emails. The first email will confirm the application payment. The second email will be confirmation of application submission. If the student does not receive both emails, it is possible that the student has not completed the application process in its entirety.
