If you wish to reserve housing in an on-campus apartment or residence hall room for Fall 2017 / Spring 2018, you must complete steps 1, 2 and 3 below at the scheduled times.

Complete these three steps:

  1. ApplyOnline: Complete the Fall / Spring Academic Year (Current / Returning Housing App) in ApplyOnline between December 1, 2016 and January 31, 2017. This is your contract and commitment to campus housing. If you do not complete ApplyOnline by January 31, 2017, you will not be offered housing. No exceptions! This step is not first come / first served but must be completed by January 31, 2017. Only students who complete Step 1 will continue to receive information and instructions about how to select their room or apartment during the selection dates in February 2017.
  2. Roommate Requests & Personal Preferences: Enter Roommate Requests and complete Personal Preferences in MyHousing between December 1, 2016 through the date you select your apartment or room. This step is not first come / first served but must be completed by the date you actually select your room or apartment in February / March. You will not be able to enter roommates until you first complete ApplyOnline in Step 1. You must request enough roommates in MyHousing to completely fill the room or apartment you want to live in by the selection date. You may only request students who currently live on-campus and have also completed Step 1 by the January 31 deadline. You will be able to select a Dining Plan for Fall 2017 in MyHousing beginning in March 2017.
  3. Room / Apartment Selection: Finish the HOST process by selecting your room or apartment in MyHousing during the selection dates in February / March. One person in your fully matched roommate group will select the residence hall room or on-campus apartment you want to live in and place each roommate in the specific bedroom that the group decided on beforehand. In order to retain a specific room or apartment, you must select that room or apartment during designated times which can be found on the HOST schedule (posted soon) on this webpage. This step will occur in February / March and is first come / first served by credit and current housing location. There will be specific dates assigned to select your housing depending on where you currently live, how many credits you have earned and then first-come / first-served. Only students who completed ApplyOnline by January 31, 2017 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.
