WSU is developing an expansive and welcoming in-person experience in fall 2021 that will let you connect with fellow Cougs as safely as possible.

What you need to know now

  • Fall move-in will take place on the WSU Pullman campus August 13-16, 2021. All students will need to sign up for a move-in time. Move-in sign-ups will be available once hall assignments are announced, no later than July 7. Additional information can be found on the Housing and Residence Life website.
  • Washington State University will require proof of the COVID-19 vaccination for all students engaging in activities at a WSU campus or location in the 2021-2022 academic year. The university also intends to extend this requirement to all employees and volunteers engaging in activities on a WSU worksite. Exemptions will be allowed for medical, religious and personal reasons.  Read more.
