Our Availability Philosophy

First-Year Students

The earlier you apply, the more choices you have. Room assignments are made on a first-come, first served basis based on the date we receive your application and deposit. We guarantee that every first-year housing applicant who applies by June 15, 2018, will receive a bed space.

We try our best to accommodate your preferences. Approximately 1,700 beds of the 2,500 available are held for First-Year Students who have assignment priority in these residence halls and suites: Chaffee, Driscoll, Keiser, Morrison, Honors College, and Sawtooth Hall, Taylor, and University Suites. We maintain a wait-list in the event that spaces open up. If you opt out of the wait-list, you will lose your place and priority.

Sophomore and Above Students

If you’re a current residential student, transfer student, or non-traditional student, your options are single rooms in Lincoln Townhomes, University Square, and in apartments on a space-available basis. If you apply before the priority deadline, you can select roommates through your MyHousing portal and then your housing assignment for the next academic year.

After the priority deadline, housing options may be limited, but we will make every effort to help you find a space in these locations or alternative options located close to campus.

**Sophomore and above students will automatically be waitlisted for the 2019 – 2020 academic year. For more information regarding Sophomore and above housing visit our updates page.

Returning Residential Students

Welcome back! Whether you have traveled abroad, completed an internship, taken a year off, or transferred to another school we are glad you’re here. If you have been out of Housing and Residence Life for a semester or more, you’re eligible to live in townhomes on a space available basis.

Graduate Students

Graduate students are welcome to apply for apartments and townhomes since most other housing is reserved for undergraduate students. A portion of the University Manor apartment complex is available specifically for participants in the Graduate Residential Scholars Program.
