How to Select Your Room

New Students:

Housing placement for new students begins after students have made their deposit. The New Student Checklist for Fall will be available on the University website by the beginning of April each year.  Deposited students will receive correspondence directing them to the appropriate web page(s) where they will be able to view important information. Once you have received your username and password for your Redlands account, you can complete the applications on the Student Life portal, located in the top toolbar of your myRedlands page. 

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: Some residence halls and apartment complexes will close completely during May Term. For example, at least Fairmont Hall and half of the Grove Apartments will close. This means that all students who intend to stay for May Term may be relocated to another community for May. 

There are more than 1,700 trees on the University of Redlands campus.

In April 2010, it was designated a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Redlands is among just three other colleges or universities in California to receive this designation.
