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 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 Square. 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 Suites, Honors College 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. If you are currently living on campus in Sophomore and Above housing you will still need to re-apply for the upcoming 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.


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.
