COVID-19 Response

What happens if classes go remote?

Bellevue College Housing does not plan to close unless operating becomes a serious risk to health and safety. Depending on the timing and circumstances, Bellevue College Housing will consider Housing Agreement cancelation requests. Remote learning can be conducted in the Residence Hall.

What did Housing do for students when this all first started?

Housing allowed students to terminate their housing contracts without penalty if they completed their checkout by the end of the winter 2020 contract period (March 21, 2020 at noon.) Students who left over spring break were only charged a $150.00 cancellation fee and the cost of the days they remained in the room after the end of winter quarter. Students who canceled during the spring contract period were charged the standard cancellation penalties. All contracts have been fully enforced since that time.

What is Housing doing to protect residents?

Bellevue College Housing is dedicated to the protection of resident and staff health and safety. The Housing Front Desk is currently open to serve students and community members. These services include mail processing, check-ins and check-outs, and resource checkouts. General housing questions can be referred via phone ((425) 564-1700) or email ( Visitors interested in a personalized remote meeting with staff may schedule one here

What if I signed-up for housing but have changed my mind due to changing COVID-19 risk?

You can log-in to their housing portal ( and cancel your application anytime before a housing agreement is signed for any reason. If you already signed a housing agreement OR if you are living on-campus and suddenly need to check-out for any reason, you must email with as much detail as possible explaining why they are asking to break their contract. If approved, you will be required to sign up for a checkout time at the housing front desk. A completed checkout means fully removing all personal items from your unit, cleaning your unit, and returning your key to the housing office.

What services are different right now due to COVID-19?

Bellevue College Housing has begun loosening restrictions, as Bellevue College is a vaccinated campus and as local mandates have eased. All residents are expected to follow the vaccinated campus protocol to submit a COVID-19 vaccination attestation in order to be eligible for housing.

Most activities and student support meetings are all being conducted remotely with exceptions on a case-by-case basis. In-person events have resumed. 

The Pizza Café is open amended hours to serve grab-and-go, made to order pizzas, and coffee. 

Custodial staff are disinfecting common areas daily. Residents are still expected to clean their suites/apartments/bedrooms.

Bellevue College Housing will continue make decisions in accordance with state and county health guidance.

What if I have an additional question?

Please email or leave your name, phone number, and detailed message with the desk attendant or on the housing phone ((425) 564-1700) voicemail and we will reach out to you at our earliest opportunity. Please note that due to the high volume of questions and requests, it may take up to 48 hours for housing staff to respond to your inquiry.
