Our Room Selection Process

Continuing and graduate students are able to participate in our room selection process, meaning they can pick their own room assignments. Make sure to visit Places to Live to see what housing options may be available to you!

  • Step 1: Decide Who You Want to Live With

    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

    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

    Complete your 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

    Group Leaders and individuals without a group will receive an email with their room selection time.

    Groups and individuals will not be able to select a room prior to their assigned time.

  • Step 5: Room Selection Days

    Group Leaders are responsible for selecting your space at your group's designated time. 

    This process is completed online. 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.

    Note: Students should visit or contact Housing & Residential Education for assistance.

  • Step 6: Cancellation Deadlines

    If you have a room reservation, you must submit the Contract Breakage Form in your 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.
