Welcome! Next Steps for Housing


The Residence Life and Housing staff looks forward to welcoming you to campus for the fall semester at the University of Redlands! Please review all the information below thoroughly, as many of your questions about housing and meal plans will be answered.

Hall Placements: In collaboration with the Dean's Office, all new students will be placed in a residence hall based on their First Year Seminar (FYS) assignment. Students will live in the community together with their fellow classmates, having the opportunity to bring what they learn in the classroom to life in the residential environment. We encourage all students to be open to new experiences with hall communities and roommates. FYS and hall placements are shared with students at the beginning of July.

Personal Profile: Students will complete their Personal Profile, to be shared with other new students, in preparation for the Roommate Selection process to come in mid-July. All students, even those who have already made roommate arrangements, are encouraged to complete their profile to support in future Roommate Agreement conversations.

  • Visit the MyRedlands Housing Portal, click on Personal Profile, click on My Info, and then select Fall 2022 (CAS) from the menu labeled For the Term.
  • After completing the information and clicking Save at the bottom of the page, click on Roommate Profile to provide additional contact and personal information. Remember to click Update Roommate Profile at the bottom of the page to save. This is how you will provide your best method of contact, contact information, and a short blurb about yourself. This will be shared, along with your living preferences, with other students.
  • Did you already submit a roommate preference? Verify we have confirmed your roommate requests by clicking on Housing and Roommate Selection on the main page of the MyRedlands Housing Portal. Click on Select Roommates and then select Fall 2022 (CAS) from the menu labeled For the Term. Any students already matched with you will be listed under Roommate Requests. Reply to this message if a prior roommate request is not listed.

Meal Plan: All students living on-campus are required to have a meal plan and new students have initially been assigned the 19 Meals Per Week (19MPW) meal plan. To view your current meal plan or to make a change,please visit the MyRedlands Housing Portal by September 2nd. After this date, the next opportunity to make an adjustment to your meal plan is leading up to the beginning of the next semester. Visit the Harvest Table website for more information about meal plans and rates.

  • Click on Meal Plans, click on Dining Plans, and then select Fall 2022 (CAS) from the menu located to the right of the Filter box.
  • The meal plan currently assigned to you will be listed. Click on a different meal plan option under Change my Meal Plan and click Purchase Meal Plan to change your plan.
  • A record of your meal plan selection history will be listed, with the one at the top being the plan currently assigned and being charged to your student account.

Move-in: New students move-in for New Student Orientation on Wednesday, August 24th by appointment. Instructions will be provided at the beginning of August for students to sign-up for their arrival time. Please note, students with a balance due on their student account, as well as any other outstanding items from the New Student Checklist, will not be permitted to move into their housing assignment until settled with Student Financial Services and/or the applicable offices.

  • Early Arrivals: Some students, new and returning, will move-in earlier than the published arrival dates as they are members of an Early Arrival Group. These students have prior permission to check-in at a different date/time and will receive additional information about move-in from their group's representative.
