Room Selection Process
Graduate Student Room Selection
Please see below for information about Room Selection for graduate students. As a reminder, the buildings available for graduate students are:
Step 1: Decide Who You Want to Live With
February 28, 2022 until Monday, May 2, 2022: Grab some friends you would like to room with and form a group!
You can either apply as an individual, or apply as a group of 2 people.
Step 2: Confirm Group Details
February 28 – May 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.
Step 3: Fill Out the Housing Application & Sign the Contract
February 28 – May 2: Fill out the "2022-2023 Academic Year" housing application in the Housing Portal.
If you completed Phase 1 of the Housing Application, please complete the remainder of the application during this time.
Group Leaders MUST log back into the Housing Portal to confirm the group once all members have completed their application.
Step 4: Group Selection Date Assigned
May 6: The Group Leaders and individuals without a group will receive an email with your group's room selection time.
Step 5: Room Selection Days
May 9 – May 11: 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 are unable to select a space, you will remain on the waitlist and will be prioritized based on your own application completion time/date. We will notify you when a space becomes available due to cancellations.
Step 6: Cancellation Deadlines
If you have a room reservation, you MUST submit the Contract Breakage Form in the 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.
