Billing for housing and tuition are completely separate. Housing payments should always be made directly to HFS, never to the tuition account.

Pay Online

You may make housing payments online with a Visa or MasterCard. HFS does not charge a convenience charge for using a debit or credit card online.

Pay by Mail

To submit a payment via check, write the UW Student ID Number and last name of the student you are paying on behalf of.

Please mail the check and a completed Check Remittance Form to:

University of Washington
Housing & Food Services
Financial Services Office
1045 NE Campus Parkway, Box 355607
Seattle, WA 98195-5607

Pay in Person

You may make payments with cash or check at the Student Services Office, 210 Lander Hall, or in the Husky Card Account & ID Center located on the ground floor of Odegaard Undergraduate Library, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Pay With Financial Aid

HFS will post housing charges directly to your financial aid account, and then notify you if there is still a balance due after your financial aid allotment is exhausted. To pay with Financial Aid, please indicate on your housing application that you would like for HFS to draw on your financial aid funds to pay for housing or contact the Student Services Office for more information.

Deposit Payments

Housing deposits may only be paid by credit card when the student is prompted for a deposit payment when completing the housing application process. Housing deposit payments can be made by mail or in person at any time but applications will not be completed until the funds arrive and are processed.

Payment Agreements

If you are not able to complete your HFS payment by the due date you may request a payment due date extension.

Your request must be received before due date to avoid a late charge on your account. Requests received after the due date may still be considered, but late charges will not be reversed.

As you consider requesting a payment agreement, please note the following:

  • Accounts that are approved for a payment agreement will be given a payment due date extension through the end of the month in which the payment is due. Requests for a due date beyond our normal extension may be requested but would only be approved on a case by case basis.
  • HFS cannot approve requests for monthly payment plans for residence hall residents.
  • Students who are denied an extension or will need an extension longer than the last Friday of the month should consider a short term loan through Student Fiscal Services in order to make their housing payment by the due date.
