Apply for Housing

Every new first-year student, including students invited to Living and Learning Programs, who desire to live on-campus must complete the On-Campus Housing and Dining Agreement by May 1, 2020, to be eligible to live on-campus.

Applying after May 1 will affect your ability to secure on-campus housing for 2020-2021. Assignments are based on housing agreement submission dates. Students may submit the Housing Agreement before accepting admission to the University.

There is a $25 non-refundable housing application fee that will be applied to the student account once enrollment confirmation to the University is established and a housing confirmation has been provided. Students may cancel their housing agreement without a financial penalty before July 1, 2020.

Housing Application


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