Current on-campus residents who wish to live on-campus in a residence hall, suite or apartment for Fall 2018 / Spring 2019, must complete this process in its entirety and meet all advertised deadlines. Failure to complete all required steps will result in no campus housing for the Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 academic year.

Complete these three steps:

  1. STEP 1 (MyHousing Application): Complete the FALL/SPRING Academic Year (Current/Returning Housing App) in MyHousing between December 1, 2017 and January 31, 2018. This is your contract and commitment to on-campus housing. Only students who complete Step 1 will continue to receive information and instructions about how to select their room, suite or apartment during the selection dates in February 2018. This step is not first come / first served but must be completed by January 31, 2018.
  2. STEP 2 (Personal Preferences & Roommate Requests): Answer Personal Preference questions and enter Roommate Requests in MyHousing between December 1, 2017 through the date you select your room/apartment in February. You will not be able to enter roommates until you first complete Step 1. This step is not first come / first served but must be completed by the date you actually select your room, suite or apartment in February / March. You must request enough roommates in MyHousing to completely fill the room, suite or apartment you want by the selection date. You may only request students who have also completed Step 1 by the January 31 deadline. Dining Plan selection for Fall 2018 will be available in MyHousing beginning in April 2018.
  3. STEP 3 (Room/Suite/Apartment Selection): Finish the HOST process by selecting your room, suite or apartment in MyHousing. One person in your fully matched roommate group must select the residence hall room, suite or on-campus apartment you want during designated selection dates in February. There will be specific dates assigned depending on where you currently live, how many credits you have earned and then first come / first served. Check the HOST schedule for details. This step will occur in February / March and is first come / first served by credit and current housing location. Only students who completed Step 1 by January 31, 2018 will be notified of and eligible to complete this step and secure housing.

Notice: More specific instructions regarding each step will follow throughout the fall and early spring semesters.
