Off-Campus Housing Registry
Still Deciding?

The Housing Registry™ listing service allows WWU students, faculty, and staff to find local housing and roommates free of charge. This service is provided by BrainWebs Online Services under agreement with WWU.

The listings for off-campus housing are compiled by the service provider and provided to the campus community for convenience only. Information in each listing was provided by the seeker of roommates or a landlord/property manager; WWU has not verified its accuracy. WWU does not inspect or endorse any of the rental accommodations identified in these listings, nor does it screen potential roommates. All arrangements for off-campus rental housing are strictly between the user and the property owner, agent or subletter.

For questions about searching or listing on The Housing Registry, contact the service provider directly at

Property owners and real estate agents can use this service to advertise rooms, apartments, and houses available for rent or sale. The service provider charges a small fee. A portion of that fee is a donation to Western Washington University.

Enrolled students and active faculty and staff can search the database for housing and roommates free of charge. A valid WWU email address is required.
