Complete the process for On-Campus Housing
Only after a prospective student is admitted to the university will the steps involved in the housing process be completed. If you applied for on-campus housing, you'll have to be admitted to the university and pay your admissions enrollment deposit before you'll be awarded an on-campus housing contract.
When you receive your housing contract, you'll have a limited amount of time to print, complete, sign and submit the contract along with a required $300 advance room payment.
Select your housing preferences online as soon as you submit your signed contract. You may continue to update your preferences until July 1.
Room assignment notifications are e-mailed in mid-July. You are not guaranteed the residence hall you prefer. Your contract is for space on campus and not for a particular building.
