Things to remember

  • Late deposit submissions: If you do not submit your $200 Online Housing Deposit by the March 1st deadline, your housing is not guaranteed. Students who deposit late will be placed in post-room selection and assigned over the summer months if a space becomes available. If you withdraw before June 1st you are able to get a refund for your housing deposit.
  • First-Year Core Programming: If you did not complete your First-Year Core Programming requirement, you will be entered into post-room selection. You will not be allowed to participate in the regular room selection process with your friend(s). In addition, no space can be held for you in a particular room or suite. If you wish to return to housing for next year, you still must submit your $200 online housing deposit by the March 1st deadline.
  • Residential Life Probation: Students on Residential Life probation are not able to participate in Room Selection and will be placed in housing over the summer months as long as they pay their Fall 2022-Spring 2023 housing deposit.
