Student Housing and Residential Life

Applying for Student Housing as an incoming resident

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the freshman/sophomore live-on requirement has been temporarily waived for the 2021-2022 academic year. The requirement will be reinstated for 2022-2023 academic year.

Student Housing is open to full capacity for the 2021-2022 academic year to support in-person instruction. Students should expect to share living space as appropriate in each residential community and abide by all COVID-19 guidelines.

For 2021-2022 housing, unless approved for a vaccination exemption, residents are required to be immunized for COVID-19. All students are required to submit their information to the Otter Vaccination Registry to live on campus.


How to apply for Housing

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.
