Welcome to Residence Life & Housing! 

We're here to help. As we navigate creating a healthy and safe on-campus home for your student, we welcome your questions and your partnership.

Just as we work with you, we partner with students to create welcoming, vibrant, and inclusive residence hall communities. Students do more than simply live in our halls; they take the opportunity to learn and engage as they develop as citizens and leaders.

What's coming up

Processes and Applications opening soon in Residence Life and Housing

The application for summer session housing is now open! Current undergraduate students taking at least one in-person summer session course are eligible to apply. We recommend applying by May 25 for the best consideration as space is limited. Learn more in our application guide.

The housing application for newly admitted first year students for Fall 2022 is open! The application can be found at the My Housing Portal and students are encouraged to apply by the priority deadline on May 17, 2022 at 5 p.m. While the application will remain open after May 17, students will not be able to indicate room type interests, make roommate requests or apply to an LLC. 

Eligible students seeking a housing exemption to commute from home must complete a First Year Exemption Request instead of a housing application.

For more information, visit the application guide.

The returning student application for 2022-2023 housing is for all rising sophomores, juniors and seniors and can be accessed on the My Housing Portal. It opens at Noon on Tuesday, February 8, 2022  closes at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, 2022.  It is not first come first served. The application does not require an application fee.

Once the application closes on March 1, we will not be accepting additional applications. We may offer a late application in the summer, so interested students can check back closer to that time.
