Housing Selection Information

Information for returning student housing selection is now available.  Please click the presentation below to learn more about our housing selection process for your room assignment in the 2016-2017 academic year.   

The housing selection process that is occurring in March 2016 is only for current residents living on campus. 

The housing deposit fee will be $250.00 due by March 1, 2016! 

As a reminder, returning residents must be registered for 8 or more credits by June 10, 2016.    

Campus residents who are not registered for classes, with 8 or more credits, by this date will lose their fall/spring housing assignment and will NOT be refunded their housing deposit.  Please make sure to meet with your academic advisors and review the Registration Guide.  As a reminder, you must be enrolled as a full-time student (12 or more credits) by the start of the semester to maintain your eligibility to live on campus.  


Step-by-step instructions are available at Room selection how to. and also a FAQ's section.
