HOUSING SELECTION INFORMATION

Checking In

THE HOUSING SELECTION PROCESS:

ALL Residential Students MUST complete the Housing Verification form. (Students planning to live together must mutually select one another on the housing portal).

Residence Life is happy to assist, but not responsible for finding students suitable roommates.

The Office of Housing and Residence Life has partnered with The Housing Director to provide students with a unique online housing experience. In order to participate in Room Selections we require students to select roommates and complete the online Housing Application. The very first step, you must complete is to fill out the Housing Verification-Returning Students Only form. Incoming students can simply complete the Housing Application.

It is mandatory that all students who are current residents complete the form. Regardless of expectations for next year including but not limited to; Graduation, Transferring/Withdrawing, and or Moving off campus. Failing to follow these steps can result in fines/ housing fees.

Housing Selection Steps

Housing portal Log in

Log into your Housing Portal: Portal quick access
Please access your housing portal to complete the Housing Verification-Returning Students Only form and begin the roommate selection process. The link to the Housing Verification-Returning Students Only form is provided in this email. We have created a series of videos to help students navigate the website.

Verify

Check your student account to ensure that they are in good standing. Any of the following; registration, dean of students or business hold can stall your housing assignment. You will not have access to the applications if you have any holds on your account. Student individual assignments can be canceled if you have any outstanding holds on your accounts. A cancellation would mean that a student would need to repeat the housing selection process with no guarantee of being assigned the same room. This is to give each and every student the same opportunity to apply and select housing for the next academic year.

Register for Classes

You must register for classes to be eligible to maintain your room assignment.
Student’s individual assignments will be canceled if you are not registered for classes by the deadline. A cancellation would mean that a student would need to repeat the housing selection process with no guarantee of being assigned the same room. This is to give each and every student the same opportunity to apply & select housing for the next academic year.

Sign in

Make sure you sign in to your portal to complete housing applications and
participate in room selection. Housing selection occurs in steps

  1. Complete the housing verification form on the housing portal
    1. (Incoming students must only complete the Housing Application)
  2. Selecting desired roommates.
    1. All pairings must be mutual. It is not the responsibility of the Office of Housing and Residence Life to help students juggle roommate choices. Any conflict that arises with pairings must be resolved prior to the room selection date or the group will not be eligible to participate in the desired room selection.
    2. Group leaders: Selected by groups to represent them during the room selection process. Leaders will be responsible for selecting the requested apartment/room for all mutual roommates.
  3. Complete the housing application for desired area.
    1. Completing the application doesn’t guarantee anyone a spot. Students will be able to select upcoming meal plan options for the next year. Appointment times will be designated based on the time/date the last application for the individuals/group submission. Each student will be weighed by a point value system. Appointment times will also be assigned based on total points for groups (If applying as a group for the commons) and individuals (solo applicants). Groups with low point values will receive a later appointment time than higher point valued groups.

    2. If you didn’t get into a desired space then the Office of Housing and Residence Life would like to encourage you to sign up on the waitlist. Changes in available spaces will open up in time.

Please note that all assignments made in the portal during housing selection are subject to change due to the needs of the campus and shifting occupancy needs. Residence Life will continue to use a system where housing spaces will be consolidated, meaning Residence Life will take necessary measures to fill empty housing spaces; therefore, students may be asked to move or be given roommates (applies to apartments too) in an attempt to fill space.

*Due to growing enrollment, students will NO LONGER be allowed to purchase paid privates prior to the add/drop date. If you would like a single room, you should participate in designated singles or apartments selection.
