Apply for Housing

New first-year students, including students invited to Living and Learning Programs, who desire to live in campus residence halls for the fall semester must complete the 2022-2023 Residence Hall Housing and Dining Agreement by May 1, 2022, to be eligible to live on campus.

Applying after May 1 will affect your ability to secure residence hall housing for Fall 2022. Housing assignments are based on the date the Housing Agreement is submitted and space availability. Students may submit the Housing Agreement before accepting admission to the University.

A $50 non-refundable application fee will be required for students (unless granted a fee waiver from Undergraduate Admissions) at the time of applying for residence hall housing. Students may cancel their housing agreement without a financial penalty before July 1, 2022.

Housing Application

Note: The Agreement completed submission date will appear under Fall 2022-Spring 2023 on the "Select Housing Term" page of the StarRez portal, and the applicant will receive an automated email confirmation. If there's a concern with the Agreement submission, contact the Department of Resident Life at Please include your name and UID in the email.

Please be aware that your Directory ID and password become active approximately 24 hours after your electronic admission notice is delivered. You will need this to access the housing application site.
