Housing Selection

Residence Life hosts a Housing Selection event for current residents which is an opportunity to choose your building and room preference for the next academic year.

University Housing

First Year & New Transfer Students

  1. You will receive information by mail in spring prior to the start of the fall semester. 
  2. Submit the New Student Housing Application Form by June 1st.
  3. Roommate preferences will be accepted until June 20th at 9:00 a.m.

Current Commuter Students

If you would like to apply to live on campus, please submit the housing application.​ 

We will do our best to place you in your desired space, however, this is not 100% guaranteed.

Current Resident Students

All currently enrolled full-time students (Women's College, Graduate Students, and School of Pharmacy) are eligible to participate in housing selection.

There is a separate selection process for students who are:

  • Currently withdrawn
  • On a Leave of Absence
  • To be re-admitted for the fall
  • Studying abroad
  • New incoming first-year and transfer students

How to Apply

With Roommates

Choose to participate in housing selection as a group to improve your chances of living with friends or compatible suitemates!

Groups can only be formed with currently enrolled students.

Group Types

  • Suitemates (4-person groups)
  • Roommates (2-person groups)

Looking for a Roommate?

  1. Complete/Check-out the Roommate Binder at the Doyle Hall Desk.
  2. Attend Housing Selection Events such as the Roommate Social.
  3. Talk to your Community Assistant and see if they know anyone else looking for a roommate.

As an Individual

If you do not have a preferred roommate group, you can apply as an individual. At Housing Selection, you will submit a Roommate Preference Sheet so our office can make a compatible match.

Single Rooms

In rare instances you may be able to select a single room, but it is very likely that you will be placed in a double or triple room with assigned roommates or suitemates.

Meletia Hall

Most of the single spaces in Meletia Hall fall under the guidelines of the Office of Accessibility & Health Promotion. These rooms are reserved for students with documented accommodation needs. If you have specific needs, please contact the director.

Meletia Hall also has single, semi-private bathroom balcony rooms that may be available for rising seniors.

Doyle Hall

Doyle Hall offers more single spaces for rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors. These spaces come as-is and the furniture cannot be modified.

2018 Selection Dates

Each class level is given a designated day and time for selection. When you arrive during your time slot, it is then a first come, first served process in the interest of fairness and opportunity.

Note: If you are applying with roommates of different class years, you should attend the selection time of the later class year. (ex. A rising senior paired with a rising junior would attend the time slot for rising juniors.)
