Residence hall assignment process
For newly admitted, incoming students, the housing selection process is roughly based on the student's admission date and follows the steps below:
Step 1: Each new student is assigned a priority date equal to his/her most recent date of admission to the University.
Step 2: To keep the date of admission as the priority date, the student must submit his/her completed Student Housing Contract and a $100 security deposit by the due date specified.
If the contract and deposit are submitted after the due date, the date the completed contract and deposit are received by the Department of Residence Life, Housing and Dining Services becomes the student's new priority date.
Step 3: All residence hall assignments are then made according to:
- Priority date order
- The student's ranking of residence hall preferences
- Space available in each of the residence halls
Our returning students are assigned before incoming students are assigned; thus, spaces available to incoming students vary from year to year.
