To participate in housing selection, a student must complete an online registration from the link sent to them via e-mail by Residence Life each year. Students who register on time will receive a lottery number to use in selection of an apartment or room during the housing selection process. Students who register for housing after the designated date will select from available upper-class housing spaces after the housing selection process.
By registering for housing selection, students agree to the housing cancellation policy. By contacting the Director of Residence Life, a student may cancel the registration or housing assignment.
- If a student cancels by 5 p.m. on the last business day before housing selection begins, the student will incur no cancellation fee.
- If a student cancels by May 15, a cancellation fee of $200 will be placed on the student's account.
- Students who cancel between May 16 and June 30 will incur a $300 cancellation fee.
- After June 30, the cancellation fee is $500.
If a student registers for housing, and then decides to participate in a study abroad program during fall semester, the registration will be deferred to the spring semester, and no cancellation fee will be incurred. If a student registers for housing, and subsequently is released from the residency requirement, the registration will be cancelled without penalty. If a student registers for housing and subsequently withdraws or transfers, the student will be held to the housing cancellation policy. In the case that a roommate withdraws from housing, a student may be assigned to the open space, or the remaining student may be asked to move to another under booked room. Students on the waiting list will not be charged the cancellation fee unless they accept a housing assignment and subsequently cancel.
