Room Selection for Fall 2023 for our current students will be held in April. The room selection process will be completed online through the online housing module. Through the My Housing Portal in your Single Sign On account.
For the 2023-24 academic year, we will continue to operate Hughes, Krise and Bonar Halls as double room accommodations. Students with documented accommodation needs for private rooms will be able to apply for single rooms in these buildings. Graduate students and undergraduate seniors will be permitted to sign up for private rooms, but we are not able to guarantee those spaces, as they will depend on space and availability. If we need to consolidate those rooms, we will contact the student via email.
If you already have a room:
If you have already signed up for an apartment, you do not need to work through this process. We will be in touch with you separately if there is any need for room changes or alterations. If you have not been assigned to an apartment, even though you applied, you will still need to complete this room selection process for a residence hall. If you are currently living in a residence hall, commuting from home, or residing off campus and plan to live on campus next year, you will need to complete this process as well.
How do you sign up?
If you have not signed up for a room, you can do so online through the My Housing Portal in your single sign on account. More information will be emailed out to residential students in early April..
What is the cost difference?
The final room and board costs for the fall semester have not been approved by the state yet and are not posted. However, you can view our current room costs and differences between options on our room and board cost list for 2023-24. More information will be available in the coming months.
We will be organizing room selection so that you can select your current building the first week, and a different building the next week. If a building fills and you are unable to select your same building, you will be able to select a different building the following week. The specific selection dates for residence halls are listed below:
- April 17th: Same Room reservations
- April 18th: Same Building/Different Room reservations
- April 19th: Graduate Students and Seniors requesting different building
- April 20th: Juniors requesting different building
- April 21st: Sophomores requesting different building
- April 24th: Freshmen requesting different building
*Selection is based on your actual year at the university and does not alter based on credit hours or scholarship.
If you have any questions about the room selection process, email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Selecting a Meal Plan:
Any student living in campus owned or operated housing is required to have a meal plan.
- All undergraduate students living in residence halls will be required to choose a full meal plan (12, 14, or 19 meal options)
- Undergraduate students living in apartments or houses may choose one of the full meal plan options, or may choose the 5-meal plan option.
- Graduate students living on campus, in any facility, are not required to have a meal plan. They can opt into any of the full meal plans, the 5-meal plan and the 50-meal block plan.
Commuter students can select meal plan through the My Housing portal as well. Commuter options include the 50-block meal plan, the 5-meal plan, and any of the full meal plan options (12, 14, or 19 options).
Frequently Asked Questions
- Am I required to live on campus?
- There is currently no requirement to live on campus. We strongly encourage students to live on campus for at least their first year. Approximately 80% of first year students do live on campus, and we find that increased opportunities for engagement by living on campus leads to increased retention of those students typically.
- Are there restricted freshman housing options?
- Freshman can request to live in any residential facility, except for Greek Housing where they are not affiliated. They can live with upper-class students or other first year students. There are no restrictions on the requests as to where they would like to live. Assignments are made for current students first and then for first year students based on the date we receive application and deposit.
- Am I required to have a meal plan?
- All undergraduate residential students are required to have a meal plan. Residents in apartments and student houses are permitted to opt out of the full meal plan and select the lesser 5-meal plan.
- Graduate students are not required to have a meal plan in any residential facility.
- Exceptions are only made for approved, documented ADA accommodations.
- What appliances/items can I bring, or can I not bring?
- We have a Suggested Packing List that includes items that you may not think to bring, as well as items that you should not bring. Generally, the limitations are on fire safety concerns, such as appliances with an open heating element or open flame (i.e. Foreman grill, hot plate or candles). For the full list please see
- Can I bring an assistance or service animal?
- Assistance and service animals can be housed under the animal policy located in the Student Handbook.
- Residents are required to provide accommodations documentation from a treating physician/clinician for the assistance/service animal which can be found.
- Additional documentation for vaccines and records for the pet may also be required from the veterinarian.
- How can I be guaranteed a single/private room?
- The only time that we can guarantee a private room is for ADA accommodations. Students can provide accommodations documentation from their treating physician/clinician to the Office of Housing & Residence Life.
