Steps to Selecting a Room

  • Step 1: Decide Who You Want to Live With

    Now until March 8th: Grab some friends you would like to room with and form a group!

    The application opens up on February 25, 2022. You can either apply as an individual, or apply as a group of 2 to 4 people. Students applying individually are considered their own group.

  • Step 2: Confirm Group Details

    February 16 - March 2: Select a Group Leader and a group name.

    Once you have chosen your team, we need some specifics. One member should be a Group Leader, and your group should have a name. If you are applying as an individual, you will sign up as the Group Leader.

  • Step 3: Fill Out the Housing Application

    Fill out the "2022-2023 Academic Year" housing application in your DU Housing Portal account. Be sure to include your group name!

    Group Leaders MUST confirm each group member's request to join the group.

  • Step 4: Group Selection Date Assigned

    March 9, 2022: The Group Leader will receive an email with your group's room selection time.

  • Step 5: Room Selection Days

    March 14-16, 2022: The Group Leader will be responsible for selecting your space at your group's designated time. This process is completed online, and students may email, call, or visit the Housing & Residential Education office for assistance.

    If you do not select a room during this process, our office will place you into an open space after Room Selection has concluded.

  • Step 6: Cancellation Deadlines

    If you have a room reservation, you MUST submit Contract Breakage Request through DU Housing Portal to cancel it. Be mindful of the following deadlines:

    • June 30, 2022: After signing the housing contract, cancellations up until this date will forfeit the $200 Housing Deposit. If no deposit is on file, your student account will be charged $200.
    • July 1, 2022 until the day before your check-in date: Cancellations during this time will forfeit the $200 Housing Deposit and pay a $1,000 contract breakage fee.
