Housing Selection Step by Step Process
Step 1. Pay Your Housing Deposit!
Housing deposits need to be paid by March 1, 2020 in order to be eligible to participate in the room selection process. The housing deposit is $250.00 and can be paid through your MyHeliotrope account after you select the Housing and Meal Plan option. Please make sure to select the correct application once in the housing portal. If you currently live on campus, you are a “continuing student.”
Step 2: Decide Who You Want to Live With
Set up your “Roommate Group” (if you have one) prior to the earliest selection date in which your group can participate. Make sure everyone in your group has mutually requested each other so that you have a fully matched group. Make sure you all agree on a plan (which building, who is going into which room, etc). Remember than anyone you confirm as a mutual roommate can pull you in to a room.
Step 3: Make Sure Your Roommate Group Fits Your Rooming Request
You, plus your roommates, cannot exceed the amount of available spaces in the location you are trying to select. You will have the power to manipulate your own group throughout the selection process.
Step 4: Look For Your Room Selection Date
Make sure that you are selecting your room on the correct selection date. The selection dates can be found online on the Office of Community Engagement website or by reviewing our posters on campus. Remember, if you are in a group, your selection is based on the member of the group with the lowest credits.
Step 5: Choose Your Room!
Choose your room. Any person in the group can assign the other members of the roommate group to a room, apartment or suite. If you are selecting your room as an individual, then you don’t need to worry about a roommate group. After you confirm your room, your choice cannot be changed.
Step 6: Choose Your Dining Plan
On the housing portal, click on the dining tab and choose your meal plan. Residents who live in a residence hall (Big Haus, Farside, Crossroads, Outback, Fort Awesome and Way back) are required to have a meal plan. Learn more about our dining plan options and prices that fit your needs.
