Housing Selection

This page is for incoming first-year and transfer students enrolled for the 2017-18 academic year who will be selecting housing for the fall semester of the 2018-19 academic year.

Incoming first-year and transfer students arriving in fall 2018 should check the New Students page for information regarding housing placements.

Returning Students

The housing-selection process will now be conducted exclusively online and will begin with a housing intention and preference form. All students will be required to fill out this form to indicate their intent to commute from home, live off campus or live in college-provided housing. Students electing to live in college-provided housing will be able to list their preferred locations and roommates. The form will only need to be submitted once.

Selecting a Group

Students can submit as an individual or in groups ranging in size up to eight people. Groups can be composed of students from any class year. Order of selection will be based solely on the cohort year of group members. Credit hours will have no bearing on housing assignment decisions.
