The housing application is your chance to 

  • Indicate your preferences of area and room type. Preferences are not guaranteed but we will do our best to assign you according to availability.
  • Request specific roommates or make no selection and we will assign them for you. Roommate preferences are not guaranteed but we will do our best to assign you together.


If you are a newly admitted student and are getting an error when accessing your MyHousing and you recently paid your $100 Enrollment Confirmation Fee it may take 48hrs for our system to update and make MyHousing available to you.

These instructions are for new residents only. If you are a returning or current resident you will apply through Reservation Days.
