How to Select Your Room

New Students:

Housing placement for new students begins after students have made their deposit. The welcome packets for Fall 2014 will be online and are expected to be available on the University website on approximately April 5.  Deposited students will receive correspondence directing them to the appropriate web page(s) where they will be able to view important information, fill out required forms, choose First Year Seminars, and fill out the Student Life Application.

Returning Students:

Returning students select their room each Spring (for the Fall semester) through the Housing Selection and Placement Process. Rooms are mostly selected by the end of April, and students will generally stay in the same room through the Fall, Spring and May terms of the academic year. The Housing Selection and Placement Process information is available online.

Special Note: Beginning in 2015, some residence halls and apartment complexes may close completely during May term. This means that all students who intend to stay for May term may be relocated to another community for May.
