Applying for Housing  

Assignments are determined based on several criteria including but not limited to the following:  Geographical distance from student’s home address to campus, with students that live the furthest away receiving a priority.  Date that your housing application is received, with students that apply the earliest receiving a priority.   Certain academic programs and campus involvement also receive additional priority for housing.  There are also a variety of special interest housing options. Students who apply for housing after the due date will be assigned based on the priority criteria listed above. All students interested in on-campus housing must apply separately from their application for admission to the University.
