Whatcom is excited to announce the opening of Cedar Hall for fall quarter, 2020! Cedar Hall offers residential facilities, programs, and services designed to enhance student learning and support student success. Our diverse residential community offers interaction and communication with people from all over the world. Applications for Cedar Hall are open now! 


Our opening plan will be guided by local, state and federal agencies in regards to safety. Cedar Hall will be at a reduced capacity to allow for social distancing needs. Precautions may also include rotation of and limitation of residents moving in, assigned move in days/times, PPE requirements for residents during move in, ongoing check in’s via email and phone, and limited access to community spaces. Each floor in Cedar Hall will be staffed with at least one Resident Advisor to assist residents. 

At this time, each resident will be assigned their own bathroom. A four bedroom two bathroom suite will be occupied by only 2 students and two bedroom one bathroom suites will be occupied by one student. This structure is subject to change as safety restrictions are reduced. 


All communications will be via email to the email addres s listed on the housing application. Please be sure to update your email address if it changes to receive up to date notifications regarding housing. 


We are accepting applications for fall quarter! Applications can be completed online. Each applicant will be contacted via email once an application has been completed.

Applicants will receive notification of placement in your Welcome Packet on or before August 31st via email. Your placement notification will provide you with information on your move in day and time, roommate email contact and tips for preparing for your arrival.
