Residence Life





On-campus housing is a very popular option, especially amongst first-year students. As soon as you are a confirmed student, you are encouraged to submit your housing application. Priority for room selection will be based on the date your housing deposit is received.

Housing applications are accepted on a rolling deadline; however, students are encouraged to consult the housing process dates on the housing portal to determine when each step of the process is recommended to be completed.


Some residence halls are more popular with returning students than others, so the number of available spaces for new students will vary by hall. For upper-class housing, returning residence hall students will have priority in the room assignment process. First year students will have the opportunity to select their room during the application process. Any students who have applied for housing, but miss the opportunity for room selection, will have their room assigned by the Office of Residence Life according to room availability and the room preferences designated on the housing application.

If you prefer to live with a specific person, please search for them by screen name during the Roommate Selection Step of the housing application process. Roommates may need to be broken up if there are no rooms available to accommodate the request.

Please note that a room cannot be selected in the housing application process until the $225 housing deposit has been received and proof of the meningitis immunization has been submitted.





A $225 housing deposit must accompany each housing application. Please note that submission of a housing deposit does not confirm your intent to enroll with the University. However, with the appropriate paperwork, it does reserve a bed space on campus. In order to confirm your intent to enroll with the University, please remember to submit your $200 matriculation deposit to the Admissions Office.


Your options for submitting a housing deposit are:
