The below documents were created to guide and support our residents. Whether you are applying for housing, preparing to move in, or departing, this page will have very useful information for you. If you can't find what you are looking for, please contact our office at (210) 829-6034 or at email@example.com.
All residents are required to have a $225 housing deposit on file in order to complete a housing application. The Walk Through will help guide you through the process in submitting your deposit. Please note that once the deposit is paid, it takes 24 hours for it to reflect on your Star Rez account. Additionally, if a deposit is on file, an additional deposit does not need to be paid!
As part of the housing application process, all students must complete the Housing Contract found in the Star Rez Student Housing Portal in the application section. For students who are 18 years of age or over, you will electronically consent to the contract. For students who are under 18 years of age, the contract must be printed, completed and signed by the applicant, and then signed by a legal guardian. The contract is then uploaded into the housing application in Star Rez.
Residence Life and Housing Operations uses a online housing application for all students requesting housing. The housing application can be found in Cardinal Apps under the Star Rez Student Housing Portal. The Walk Through will help guide you through the different steps of the process regarding your housing application. Please remember that you must have your $225 housing deposit on file in order to access the entire housing application.
Knowing what to bring and what can stay home is important as you prepare to move onto campus. The following guide shows a visual representation of what to bring, as well as a list of items you should bring, as well as what should not be brought to your residence hall. A full listing of approved and unapproved items can be found in our Residence Life Handbook, which is located in the Policies and Reporting page on the left hand navigation bar.
For international students who are not returning to UIW and returning back to their home country, the housing deposit must be released via an electronic wire transfer form. This allows UIW to deliver the deposit, pending any damages, directly to you, regardless of where your bank is located. This form must be completed and submitted to the UIW Business Office prior to your departure.
