Seattle Central places new students in the Studios on Broadway for the specific license periods listed on our website. Placements are only made for the full length of the license periods listed (students may move in Winter or Spring quarter, if space is available). At the end of the license period, residents must move to another living situation (apartment, host family, etc.). Seattle Central will provide resources to assist students in arranging new housing in the area.
Housing and roommate assignments are made based on space availability and the preferences indicated on the Housing Preferences & Application Form. Effort is taken to accommodate student preferences and to match students with compatible roommates. However, preferences can not be guaranteed, and students are encouraged to apply early.
If we are unable to accommodate a student’s first preferences, we will next attempt to accommodate their second and/or third choices. Therefore, students are advised to carefully consider all questions on the Housing Preferences & Application Form.
Students who wish to live together may indicate their roommate request on the Housing Preferences & Application Form. Roommate requests will only be considered if all parties mutually request each other, and as space permits. We cannot guaranty specific roommate requests, but we will make every effort to grant this request.
Roommates must be of the same sex, and housing will not be available to male/female couples or to individuals under 17 years old.
If applicants would like to communicate with their roommate(s) before move-in, they may indicate on the placement form that Seattle Central can share their email with their rommates.
it is important to understand that living with any roommate requires flexibility, patience, and open-mindedness. We expect all residents to enter into their roommate relationships with:
1. A commitment to live together for the entire duration of the license
2. An open mind to accept each other’s cultural and personal differences in the spirit of learning from one another
3. An honest effort to compromise, communicate, and develop a positive roommate relationship
4. The expectation that roommate relationships require some work and effort by both roommates
5. The expectation that your roommate(s) may not be your best friends, but you can live together
