New Student Housing Selection

In early June students will receive an email directing them to complete their housing agreement.  Part of that agreement includes their roommate matching questionnaire.  Students will then be able to search for compatible roommates and send messages back and forth to each other in order to form groups.

Students will be assigned a selection time between July 9 and 11, 2014.  At that time they will be able to log into the system and select their assignment for the fall. 

Students may select as individuals, or select as part of a group.  Specific instructions on forming a group and completing selection will be sent out in the month of June.

Transfer students will also be asked to complete a housing agreement in the month of June.  This information will be used to place you into your fall assignment.  

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What order to students select their housing?

A: The selection order is determined by the date the student submitted their housing deposit.    

Q: When Is Move In for First Year Students?

A: First Year students will move onto campus over the course of two days.  Those dates are September 3rd and 4th.  To ensure a smooth move in process we will assign the day and time for students to move in based on their housing assignment.  The tentative schedule is below.  Students will receive a Move-In packet which includes their parking pass and official move in time during the first week of August. 

Q: How do first year students get their housing assignment?

A: In early June students will receive an email directing them to complete their housing agreement.  This agreement includes the roommate matching questionnaire.  Students will be able to them search the database and send messages to those they think would make a good match.  Students will then select their housing assignment online between July 9 through 11, 2014.
