All eligible returning students who wish to live on campus during the upcoming academic year must sign a 2020-2021 housing contract by February 28, 2020 to participate in the Room Selection Process. The University implemented a two-year residency requirement beginning with the Class of 2023. Students in their freshman and sophomore year are required to live on campus. 

Who's Eligible?

You must be a currently enrolled, full-time undergraduate or graduate student for the spring 2020 semester or be readmitted for the fall 2020 semester by Friday, February 28, 2020 (contact the Dean of Students regarding readmission).

Step 1: Complete and submit your online Housing Contract

Housing contracts will be available online beginning February 3, 2020. Those who complete the contract by 5:00 p.m. on February 28, 2020 will be eligible to participate in the room selection process. Contracts signed after 5:00 p.m. on February 28, 2020 will be assigned rooms as space permits. By signing the housing contract you are committing to pay for on campus housing for the full 2020-2021 academic year. This means you commit before you know your specific room assignment. Please review the contract carefully, including the limited cancellation policies. This is a legally binding document.  

Step 2: Prepare for Selection

Many factors will come into play as you prepare to complete the room selection process. Take some time to consider your plans including selecting your roommate(s) (single rooms are limited), research your rooming options, learn about self-assignment time slots, and how a variety of factors may affect your final rooming selection.
