On-campus housing for returning students is guaranteed all four years if we receive your application by the posted deadline.
Guarantee Housing Deadlines for 2014:
Applications received after the deadline will be accommodated as space permits.
For 2013-2014: The Housing Agreement became binding on June 1, 2013 (December 20, 2013 for Spring Admits). All students with active applications for 2013-2014 as of June 1 responsible for housing and dining charges for the full academic year.
For 2014-2015: All students should review the new Student Housing Contract (which replaces the Housing Agreement).
Returning students: Apply for 2014-2015 housing February 11-28 during the Open Enrollment Period. A new self-select feature works like selecting an airline or concert seat, which means students will need to be prepared to act when their time slot opens in order to get their preferred option. Housing for 2014-2015 is guaranteed for returning students who complete an applicaiton by May 31, 2014. Students who apply between March 1 and May 31 can still select their own room, but spaces may be limited.
The process is detailed in the Sign Up Guide.
Single freshmen under 21 are required to live in University housing, or at home with a parent or legal guardian if the residence is within a 30 mile commuting distance. The housing application will be available May 1, 2014. The deadline to submit an incoming student housing application for 2014-2015 is June 30, 2014. Please note that because new students are required to live on campus, applications will continue to be accepted until the start of the academic year. Students who apply after June 30 will be assigned after all other students have been assigned.
