At this time, we do not offer family housing.
Apartments come with basic furniture. In the living room, there is a couch with matching chair, coffee table, and an eating bar with chairs. Each bedroom has a twin extra-long bed with mattress, closet, dresser and desk with chair. Students need to provide their own dishes, drinking glasses, silverware, cooking utensils, pots and pans, and other kitchen items.
Rooms are rented by the quarter or the academic year. Each student is responsible for their own rent.
Rent is due on a Quarterly basis, at the start of each quarter. Specific dates are listed in the Resident Guide or Housing Agreement document.

Liability Insurance: Campus View registers ALL residents for Liability Insurance which covers damage to Campus View property (walls, floors, furniture, appliances, etc.) from incidents of major damage (ex. fires or floods) and protects the Resident from injury to others due to the Resident’s actions. This Liability Insurance policy is through a company called “Grad Guard” and underwritten my Merkel Insurance, with monthly premiums already included in the cost of housing. This policy does NOT cover any damage or theft to a Resident’s personal belongings.

Renter’s Insurance: Campus View does not require, but HIGHLY recommends all residents purchase a Renter’s Insurance policy to cover their personal belongings from damage or theft as well as incidental damage repairs while living at Campus View (ex. broken window, drywall repairs, etc.). Per the Housing Agreement, Campus View assumes zero liability for a Resident’s personal belongings from damage or theft regardless of responsibility. Renter’s Insurance coverage is available through “Grad Guard” or many other insurance carriers. For further information regarding a policy through “Grad Guard,” please contact the Housing Office.

The following fees are paid only one time:

  • Housing Application fee (nonrefundable): $50
  • Administration Fee (nonrefundable): $200

If you move-out and then wish to return to Campus View, you will be required to re-apply and re-pay all applicable fees.

Campus View offers residents two options for parking personal vehicles:

1. Highline College East Parking lot is available on a first come, first serve basis. A Highline College parking pass must be purchased each quarter. While overnight parking is normally prohibited, Campus View residents are afforded specific permission to park overnight.

2. Garage Parking is available on a per quarter basis with limited availability. The Highline College Public Safety Office oversees the billing and management of the parking garage; Campus View only provides the names of approved residents each quarter. The Public Safety Office charges $150 per quarter (no prorated rates available) which will be charged to the resident’s Highline College Student Account. If the interest in garage parking exceeds the number of available spaces, Campus View will conduct a lottery to determine the recipients of the available spaces.

Campus View and Highline College have NO authority over the parking spaces located in the front of the building. The spaces in front of the building are specifically for the use of the retail businesses on the first floor of the building. Residents who park their personal vehicle in the front spaces do so at their own risk.

Yes, each apartment is a single gender.

Pets are prohibited, except for fish in 10-gallon aquarium or smaller, or when a verified disability warrants the possession of a service or emotional support animal. For service or assistance animals residents should please contact Campus View Student Housing Office for further information.

Eligibility for housing at Campus View requires students to be a minimum of 17 years old by the move-in date.
No, all Highline College students are eligible to live at Campus View. Campus View also has partnerships with additional local institutions to offer housing. Please contact us for more information.
The Guarantor is a legal parent, guardian, or sponsor that authorizes Highline College, (or their designee), to use reasonable and necessary means to obtain payment from the parent, guardian, or sponsor in the event the resident’s financial obligations have not been fulfilled. Unless changed by the resident, the Guarantor will remain in place for the duration of residency, including the renewal process.
You do not need to know someone to live in Campus View. We match you with other students who are also looking for roommates. It is a great way to meet people and make new friends.
The Campus View application process is a four-part process: 1) Submitted application form, 2) Paid $50.00 Housing Application fee, 3) Signed Housing Agreement, 4) Paid $200.00 Administration Fee. Once this four-part process is complete, applicants are reserved for a space at Campus View. Once your class enrollment is verified, a specific room assignment will be confirmed.
A student may use their Financial Aid funds to pay for housing fees, HOWEVER, because the Campus View account system is separate from a student’s Highline College account, financial aid funds cannot be applied directly.

Once a student receives their financial aid from the College, the aid will be applied to their Highline College student account first. After all tuition and College fees are paid, any remaining funds would then be refunded back to the student. The student would then use this refund to pay their Campus View fees. This process can take up-to 3-4 weeks after the start of the quarter so Campus View offers a Financial Aid Payment Plan which extends the payment due date until the student receives their financial aid refund.

Please note, the Financial Aid Payment Plan requires the payment to be made IN FULL once the student receives their refund. Also, historically, a student must be prepared to include additional funds, out-of-pocket, as financial aid refunds have not been sufficient enough to cover the full housing payment. Once a student has completed the Housing Application process, information will be provided on how to request this Payment Plan registration form.

While furniture and appliances are included, we recommend you bring the following items with you: shower curtain, liner, hooks, bath mat, towels & rags, toiletries, pots & pans, cooking utensils, plates, glasses & silverware, garbage can, small appliances (i.e. blender, etc.), television, and bed linens (twin extra-long).

Move In Checklist
Students interested in moving-in early may request the Early Move-In Request form once they have completed the Housing Application process. Approvals for early move-ins are NOT guaranteed and are based on room availability. Campus View charges a weekly rate of $250.00 – $300.00 depending on the date requested, based on a Friday thru Thursday calendar. There is no prorated rate for partial weeks.
Beginning Summer 2021, each Campus View apartment will be allotted $100 of free monthly electricity usage. If the monthly electricity use exceeds $100, the overage will be evenly distributed between all residents of the apartment and charged to their Campus View account. Please see the Resident Guide for further details.
