Apply for Housing: Res Halls and Apartments

Fall 2015 Applicants:

If you are interested in living on campus for the academic year, you must come to the Housing & Residence Life Office and meet with one of the Assignment staff members to be given access to the application.

You will need to bring a credit card with you to make your $100 prepayment.

Please be advised that you will not be assigned housing without making your prepayment.

Spaces are still available in the Residence Halls. All apartments options are sold-out for the academic year.

Winter 2016 Applicants:

Application Availability

The Winter 2016 housing application will be available on our website starting Thursday, October 15th, at noon.

The terms and conditions of the Winter 2016 contract can be viewed by clicking here. Students and parents are responsible for reading and knowing these terms of conditions before applying.

Applications will be accepted for the traditional residence halls only and will not include University Apartments as those spaces are full for the academic year. Any openings that might occur in the apartments for the winter will be reserved for our residents who currently live on campus this fall and who have been awaiting open spaces.

Space Availability

We do expect to be able to accommodate any new winter student who wants on campus living in our residence halls, however, spaces are limited.

On the application, you will be asked what hall and type of room you would prefer. Please note that is only a preferred request and does not guarantee that you will receive that particular request. We are limited by what spaces are available at the time you are assigned.

The deadline to apply and make your prepayment for Winter 2016 is Tuesday, December 22nd, at 5pm. You must complete your application and make your prepayment prior to the closing date and time to be considered. The application will go off-line at 5pm and you will be unable to apply after this date. The application will reopen Tuesday, January 5th, for late applicants.

$100 Prepayment

When starting the application, a $100 prepayment will need to be made as part of the application in order to apply. This cannot be waived or charged to the student account.

All students, including those receiving financial aid funds, are required to make the prepayment in order to proceed with completion of the application.

Assignment Notification

Assignments are not made until after the fall semester closes in order to accurately assess what spaces are available.
