Non-Guaranteed Students

Students without a housing guarantee will be placed on the housing waitlist at their applied-for-community.

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

Housing Selection Processes

Students with housing guarantees 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.
