Step-by-step application process

• Verify that you are eligible to apply to live in the Studios on Broadway.

• Submit a completed Housing Preferences & Application Form for the Studios on Broadway with a copy of your student visa to the International Student Housing Office:

    ◊ By mail: International Education Programs, Seattle Central College, 1701 Broadway BE 1113, Seattle WA 98122, USA
    ◊ By fax: 206-934-3868
    ◊ By e-mail (after scanning the application materials):

Please be sure that your Housing Preferences & Application form is complete: incomplete forms will not be processed. Note: no application fee is required!

• The International Student Housing Office will send you information about your housing placement and corresponding fees approximately two weeks after receiving your application. A Placement Acceptance Form will be provided for you to use to confirm acceptance of your placement, along with information about how and where to submit funds by wire transfer for payment.

• Submit the Placement Acceptance Form and full payment within 10 business days to confirm your housing placement. If you do not submit the payment within that time, you will lose your place in the Studios, and will need to apply again. Housing fees are non-refundable. Students are encouraged to read and understand our refund policies fully before accepting their placement and submitting payment.

• For students who are 17 at the time of move-in: submit an Emergency Medical Authorization Form. This form gives Seattle Central staff the authority to make decisions for an underage student in the case of a medical emergency. Emergency situations include cases of serious injury or where a student’s life may be in danger. They do not include non-emergency illnesses or medical procedures, such as a cold or mild illness.

• Receive a confirmation email and additional pre-arrival information from the International Student Housing Office once your payment is received.

• Read our pre-arrival information packet to prepare yourself to live in the Studios on Broadway.
