Frequently asked questions

Your Safety is Our Priority
Due to COVID-19, we have made adjustments to operational hours and other policies. Please check in with Leasing for more details. With the current need for social distancing, we are making it easy for you to explore your new home however is most convenient for you. Learn more about safe touring options.

Per the local health department guidance, a 2-week self-isolation upon arrival is encouraged, but not strictly enforced in the way many international destinations enforce “quarantine” (i.e. with military supervision, in a monitored government facility, etc.) Mask-wearing and social distancing are required in all public spaces on campus.

Read how we are prioritizing Covid-19.

Please help us to keep everyone healthy by practicing social distancing, frequently using hand sanitizer, and getting vaccinated.



  1. Do I have to be a Shoreline Community College student to live on campus?

No. Though our building is created with Shoreline Community College students as the primary residents, our building is open to all full-time enrolled college students wanting a college housing experience who meet our rental criteria. Contact the leasing office for more details and questions about eligibility.

    1. Let the Leasing Office know when you receive your housing agreement and we will work with you to coordinate payment.
  3. I’m an international student. Can I still live on campus?

  7. Is it possible that I might be placed with a roommate of a different gender?
    1. Yes, it is possible. You will have the opportunity to designate on your roommate survey whether you would prefer to live with someone identifying as the same gender or someone identifying as a differing gender (we call this a gender-inclusive unit) and we will do our best to accommodate your request. However, we want to encourage residents to branch out of their comfort zone and find friends throughout the building. Choose a setting that will be most comfortable and enriching for you. Please be aware that though apartments may be gender specific, each floor will be mixed gender.
