My friend is transfering to UW this quarter and he signed up for dorm housing way too late because he is mildly retarded like that. Now we are a week away from classes starting and HFS is telling him that there may not be a housing assignment avaliable for him by the time school starts and he may have to go into overflow housing or temorary digs. I didn't have to go through this stuff so I am not sure what to tell him about it.
Where is temp housing?
How long are you usually stuck in this limbo of homelessness until you get a regular place?
How much space do you have in overflow or temp for your stuff?
If I let him crash at my non-HFS apartment so he doesn't have to bunk up with a bunch of strangers, will they see the doesn't-need-temporary-place as doesn't-need-permanent-place and move him down or off the wait list?
Thanks a bunch! I hope everybody else's housing situations are better than this.
