Through the Office of Community Engagement, on-campus housing is offered to full-time, matriculated students. All residents must attend class and be enrolled for a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester.

DUE TO COVID-19:

All students will be housed within Outback, Farside, Fort Awesome, Wayback, Alumni Village, Commons and The Olde. Students will have a roommate if assigned to a double or triple bedroom. Big Haus, Crossroads and Farside will remain closed for the fall semester. All students must sign a COVID 19 Residence License Agreement Addendum prior to moving on to campus. 

Spring 2022 Housing

All students not currently living on campus for the fall must complete all of the following to be considered for housing: 

  • the Enrollment Deposit of $150.00
  • the Housing Deposit of $250.00
  • the completed Residence License Agreement

Commuter students need to only pay the enrollment deposit if housing is not needed. Continuing Residential students whom deposit and complete the RLA and housing application by December 1st will be prioritized for housing, but preference is given to those with in person courses and approved on campus activity. New students who deposit by December 15th will be considered for priority housing. Students will be placed into housing after completing the aforementioned steps. Your application will include questions pertaining to your preference for housing. The office will try it’s best to house you based on these preferences but please be aware that all first choices cannot be granted. Students will receive their housing assignment in late December. All housing assignments are final.
