• Must be at least 17 years of age by the move-in date

Please also note that due to the nature of the facility, all roommates must be of the same sex. We are unable to offer housing to children or male / female couples.

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 a housing Placement Acceptance Form by email within 5 business days of receiving your complete application.  The placement form will include your room number with number of roommates, total payment due, and terms of acceptance of the placement. The email will include information about how and where to submit funds by wire transfer for payment.

• Within 10 business days of receiving the Placement Acceptance Form:

     - Sign the form and return it to the International Housing Office
     - Make your payment as outlined in the Placement Acceptance Form

If you do not submit the form and make payment within 10 business days, you will lose your place in the Studios, and will need to apply again. Students are encouraged to read and understand our refund policies fully before accepting their placement and submitting payment.

If you decide not to accept the placement, please inform the International Housing Office so they can update their records.

• 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.
