Returning Student Room Selection Process Overview

Returning Student Room Selection is the process by which returning residential undergraduate students secure on campus housing for the upcoming academic year. All current first year students must complete the contract and process in order to fulfill the two-year residency requirement. Current second year and upper division students can complete the contract if they are interested in living on campus again next year. All students who intend to live in their Fraternity or Sorority house must complete the contract.

video tutorial is available to walk you through the returning undergraduate student room selection process. 
    

Selecting Suites

Schapiro Hall

Single suites are comprised of 4 single bedrooms sharing 1 common bathroom. To select these suites, you must have a group of 4 students.

Kemper Hall

Single suites are comprised of 6 single bedrooms sharing 2 common bathrooms. During room selection, you can choose 1/2 the suite (3 single bedrooms that share 1 bathroom) only if you have a group of 3 students.

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.

CONTINUOUS HOUSING

Continuous Housing allows eligible students to stay in undergraduate housing through Winter Break. You will be able to select Continuous Housing as a need in the room selection process. 

HOUSING CANCELLATION

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 without questions or penalty until 5pm on March 15, 2024.  Students will only be released from housing for the following reasons:
