Housing

If you are interested in living on campus, please contact the Office of Residential Life. They handle all issues related to on-campus housing, including housing contracts and reservation deposits.

All new JWU students are required to live on campus unless a housing exemption is granted. Until we receive this completed form, we will assume that you will be living on campus and will charge you accordingly.

Move-in Dates
Fall Term: Sept 2
Winter Term: Nov 28

Residence hall and room assignments are based on availability upon receipt of your deposit, housing application and contract commitment. If you arrive after the move-in deadline, you will be placed in any available space.

Off-campus Housing
International Student Services does not provide direct assistance to students looking for off-campus housing. A number of local companies are available to help you in your search.

Prices
The Denver Campus is situated in a residential area with many apartment complexes, single family homes and rooms available for rent. Prices vary depending on location, services and how many students will share the apartment; average costs for a 1 bedroom run from $750-1200, while 2 bedrooms typically cost $850-1300.

Rental contracts
When signing a lease, make sure that you understand all of the terms. Once it is signed, you are legally responsible for all of the rules and conditions contained within it. A lease is strictly between the student and the landlord or rental agency.

Furniture
Some apartments are furnished, but most of them need to be furnished by the student. Before purchasing furniture, consider how long you will need it and what you will do with it when you leave. Used furniture outlets are located near the university.

Utilities
Most landlords ask that you pay for your own utilities, which usually include heat, electricity, telephone and cable.
