Important Housing Information and Instructions

Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to secure your housing, please complete the housing intent form. A member of our Residential Life staff will follow up with a housing contract and information on how to submit your housing deposit.

Each year at the start of the housing selection process, you will be auto-prompted to sign your housing agreement.

Submit your housing preferences on the Housing Portal by selecting the "Housing Selection" menu item. The first time you select this button, you will be auto-prompted to submit your preferences. This will include updating emergency contact information and privacy settings, answering several roommate matching questions, listed a top RLC choice (if applicable, also note that a supplemental application for each RLC is also required), and general housing preferences (such as an area of campus or room type).

You may revise your preferences on the Housing Portal as well by selecting the "Update Preferences" button.

If you are interested in living with a person of another gender you may do so. Both single-gender and multi-gender housing options are available.

Several housing accommodation processes exist if you have a specific need when setting up your housing. Learn more about each process and submit requests on our Special Accommodations page.
