Residence Life

Room Selection

Thank you for filling out your housing application for the 2017-2018 academic year! Housing Selection is a process that initiates a resident selecting their residence hall space for the upcoming academic year. In order to participate in Housing Selection you must make sure that you are currently in good standing academically, judicially, and financially. You may not have any outstanding obligations at the University. All residents must be registered as a full time student; carrying 12 or more credits to select a room.

Don’t forget!

Attend a Housing Selection Information Session & Roommate Mixer (Optional) to learn more about Housing Selection. See Room Selection Timeline below.

Commuter Students interested in the Room Selection process must pay a $250.00 housing deposit. Please come to the Office of Residence Life to obtain a Housing Application after paying the deposit with Enrollment Services. Be sure to have your deposit receipt with you. Commuter students will not be assigned Room Selection numbers or entrance time; however, they can be pulled into Room Selection by a roommate group or friend that has been assigned a number.
