To reserve a space, all students must complete the Residential Services Contract Terms and Conditions (commonly known as the housing contract) between March 15 – April 7.

Single rooms are chosen individually. Students wishing to live near one another should discuss desired arrangements, both before and during the assignment process, in order to choose rooms near one another.


RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT

All rising sophomores are required to live on campus. Rising sophomores who intend to live in a fraternity or sorority house as part of the residency requirement are still required to complete a housing contract. After your fraternity or sorority house assignment has been verified for the coming fall quarter, your housing contract will be noted as living in fraternity and sorority housing.

ALL GENDER HOUSING

All Gender Housing allows students, regardless of sex, gender, or gender identity, to share a room or suite. You will be able to select All Gender Housing as a preference in the room selection process.

Rising second-year students may not cancel their housing contract due to the two-year residency requirement. Rising third-and fourth-year students may cancel their contract but should take note of the cancellation fee schedule. Students will only be released from housing for the following reasons:

Welcome to Room Selection Week!

Here is the schedule for Room Selection. Each day the times will stay the same; the only difference will be the rooms available. Based on your priority number, you will log in at the same time on your preferred day. The person in the group with the best priority number will log in and choose spaces for the group, even if this person is not the group leader.

3rd and 4th year students who don’t choose a room during room selection will be assigned by Residential Services. Students eligible to cancel must do so in writing by April 16th, 2021 at 11:59pm.
