Application Process

Apply online during the Priority Housing Application Period (April 17-24, 2017).


Guaranteed Students

Apply during the Priority Housing Application Period to retain your housing guarantee and become eligible to participate in room selection activities.

All deadlines and guarantee conditions will be strictly enforced. Late applicants will forfeit any existing housing guarantee and will be placed on the non-guaranteed wait list.

Non-Guaranteed Students

Students without a housing guarantee who apply during the Priority Period will be placed on the housing wait list at their applied-for-community.

Non-guaranteed wait list applications will not be considered until all housing guarantees at all communities have been honored. 

Housing Selection Processes

Once the Priority Period ends, students with housing guarantees who applied will be invited to select their own housing. A point system is used to determine the order in which applicants will be invited to select housing, either individually or as part of a group.
