Applying for Housing (Entering Students)
On-campus housing is guaranteed for all fall incoming students who fill out the Housing License Agreement before the deadline specified. Spring semester incoming students are not guaranteed housing.
If you are a student entering in the fall semester, you can apply for housing by following the steps below:
- Step 1: Log in to your admissions portal.
- Step 2: Fill out the Housing License Agreement before May 5. Make sure to read the entire agreement prior to signing it.
- Step 3: Wait for further information sent from our office via email.
Applying for Housing (Continuing Students)
Housing for continuing students is not guaranteed. All continuing students interested in academic year on-campus housing are encouraged to participate in the on-campus housing lottery, which occurs during the month of March.
- Step 1: In March, open the application and read the Housing License Agreement (HLA).
- Step 2: In early April, our office will hold a housing lottery, and inform you whether we are offering you on campus housing, or whether you will be placed on a waitlist. Those not chosen for housing through this lottery process will be put on a waitlist and receive an update on their waitlist position every other week.
Students confirmed for housing will receive more information over the summer from our office regarding room and roommate selection. You can also view a recording of our Off Campus Housing 101 webinar, which covers the continuing student housing lottery in depth.
Frequently Asked Questions
Below are the answers to common questions that students and their families have about the housing application process.
I am a student entering during the summer semester. How do I apply for on campus housing for fall and spring?
Students entering in the summer must also fill out a separate application for academic year housing. These students should fill out the continuing student application during the month of March to be included in our continuing student housing lottery.
I was placed in an economy room. What does that mean?
Economy rooms are rooms that are slightly smaller than other spaces on campus designated for the same amount of residents. Students who are assigned to economy rooms will receive a partial refund at the end of each semester, which is calculated based on the number of weeks the room stays fully occupied. If an economy room stays fully occupied for an entire academic year, the residents of that room will receive a maximum refund of $1,501 each semester.
Who is guaranteed housing on campus?
The only students guaranteed housing on campus are new entering students who pay their tuition deposit and complete a Housing License Agreement by May 5 and are entering during a fall semester. Entering students who do not meet that deadline, or who are entering during a spring semester, are not guaranteed housing. Continuing students are not guaranteed housing, but can participate in a housing lottery process during the month of March.
Are there any important dates or deadlines I should be aware of?

How does the room selection process work for returning students?
Returning students who have filled out the Housing Agreement and received an offer of housing following the housing lottery will receive communication from our office about the room selection process.
I was placed on the wait-list for housing. What does that mean?
Students who are not initially offered a room on campus, but who have signed the Housing Agreement will automatically be added to a wait-list for housing. This means that we are unable to offer you housing at this time, but that we will offer housing to those on the wait-list as spots become available.
Can I cancel my housing contract?
Students who fill out the housing application and are offered housing will be responsible for paying the full amount stated in their contract. The only students permitted to be released from their housing contract are those who are withdrawing from the institution.
Students who have applied for housing on campus should not sign leases for off-campus housing.
I would like to live in a single room. Is this possible?
Our single rooms on campus are largely reserved for students who have approved medical accommodations through Accessibility Resources for Students. If you believe you have a need for a medical accommodation, please reach out to Accessibility Resources and complete their process before their advertised deadline. If you are approved for a medical accommodation and have been offered housing, you will be assigned to a room that meets that accommodation.
