Dear Resident,

We hope you’re having an amazing summer so far; we can’t believe it’s almost July! We wanted to send some reminders about upcoming deadlines, processes, and information.

  • The deadline to cancel your housing contract is June 30, 2022. After June 30th, you are financially bound to the terms and conditions of the housing contract for the entire academic year (fall and spring semester) and the housing contract cannot be canceled to reside off campus during the contract term. Please note: BannerWeb will be down for routine system maintenance June 30th and July 1st, so please plan accordingly. Requests to cancel your housing contract must be submitted by June 29th due to the system outage.
  • You will have the ability to change your meal plan, (if eligible based on your room assignment and if you are not a first-year student), starting July 1, 2022 until September 2, 2022. You can change your meal plan online through your MyHousing Portal by selecting the Meal Plan tab, and choosing any of the available options.

Room Change Information:

We understand that not all students were able to select their desired residence hall during Room Selection. In response, we are offering the following room change options:

  •     Waitlist - We will be offering a waitlist for Brownell Single Bedrooms, West Suites, North Midrise Single Bedrooms, North Townhouses and Schwartz Hall. You may access the waitlists through the Room Selection tab in your MyHousing Portal. Please do not select into more than one waitlist; multiple selections will make you ineligible to participate. The waitlists will be open until June 25th and placement from the waitlist will continue until the room change process on July 27th. All of your requested roommates must request the same hall on the waitlist if you wish to move together. Please know that adding your name to the waitlist does not guarantee placement in your desired residence hall. As a reminder, credit eligibility still applies and incoming first-year students are only eligible for Neff, Wilkinson, Hickerson, Chase and Farnham.
  •     The room change process opens for all residents on Wednesday, July 27th. Between 10:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. on 7/27, residents will be able to select any available room. You'll be able to view the room change process on your MyHousing Portal on the main page.
    • Under room selection on the main page, please click on "Select a room/suite" to participate.
    • Please note: roommate matching is not available during this room change process. You must remove any roommate matches on your account before the room change process. If you would like to choose a roommate, you may individually select any open room that you both meet the requirements for and assign yourselves individually to that room.
    • Availability varies by building, so if a room is not showing up when you search, it is not available for the fall 2022 semester.

Below you’ll find each building's credit information for room selection. Your eligibility is based on your cumulative total credits. In addition, please review the current costs associated with each building and room type prior to your selection.

Dear Student,

It's almost time for room selection! Room selection is an exciting part of the housing process, so here's all the information you need to make your selection:

Roommate Matching

The deadline for roommate matching is April 3rd at 11:59 p.m. ALL of your requested roommates need to confirm/request each other by April 3rd. In addition, please decline any unwanted roommate matches that are pending.

It is very important that you are fully matched; you will be placed in a room selection process based on your group size.

Check our room selection webpage for detailed information about...

  • Steps to complete a roommate survey and roommate profile
  • Steps to search for and request a roommate
  • Steps to accept or deny a roommate request

You are not required to match with a roommate, but we encourage students to find their own roommates to ensure that they are happy with their living experience next year.

Room Selection

Your room selection date is determined by your group size. We will post your room selection date and selection time on your MyHousing Portal Sunday evening on April 10th.

  • For students selecting a single bedroom OR who have no roommate preference - your room selection pick time will be determined by your total number of expected credits earned at the end of the current semester (current semester (Spring '22) + cumulative = total credits). Priority is given to students with the highest credits.
  • For students in a roommate match of 2 or more* - your room selection pick time will also be determined by your total number of expected credits earned at the end of the semester (current semester (Spring '22) + cumulative = total credits). Your group's pick time will be determined by the student in your group with the highest number of credits.
  • Only ONE member of your roommate group will need to log in to select the room for the whole group.
  • *We will not be offering any triple occupancy rooms for fall. If you are a group of three, you will be eligible to select a 4-person room or suite. Please note: it is likely you will receive a 4th roommate.

Important note: Summer courses and/or Fall 2022 courses do not count towards your cumulative credit count.

Room Selection Dates

  • April 11th - this room selection day is for students seeking a single bedroom.
  • There are LIMITED single spaces available in Brownell, North Midrise, North Townhouse, and West Suites.
  • April 12th - this room selection day is for students in roommate groups of 3, 4, or 6.
  • West Single Suites will be available for groups of 3 or 4.
  • April 13th - this room selection day is for students in a roommate group of 2 AND students with no roommate preference.
  • Students who do not select a room during the room selection process will be placed by the Office of Residence Life.

Building Information

Below you’ll find each building's credit information for selection along with corresponding group sizes that coincide with the building. Please view the current costs associated with each building and room type prior to your selection. Important note: prices for Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 have not been updated yet and are subject to change.

  • Brownell Hall (Minimum credit 20) – Single options and groups of 3, 4 or 6 (rooms for groups of 6 are very limited)

We encourage you to find roommates to fill rooms to ensure that you will be eligible to select a room in your preferred residence hall.

As a reminder, we will not be offering any triple occupancy rooms for fall. If you are a group of 3, you will be eligible to select a 4-person room or suite. Please be aware that it is likely you will receive a 4th roommate.

Arrive at any hall's front desk on the date/time above and you'll get a chance to see a room in that hall.

How Does Room Selection Work

You asked. We listened! Change is coming to Residence Life for the fall 2022/spring 2023 academic year!

 

More single housing options, a quiet housing community, and more fun than ever before. We hope you’ll return and join us next year to enjoy some of these exciting new opportunities. Check out the flyer below for important dates and credit limits for each housing option.

 

What’s New?

  • Singles will be offered throughout Chase, Farnham, Hickerson, and Wilkinson Halls
  • Single bedrooms will be offered in select Brownell Hall apartments. Enjoy a shared common space and bathroom within your apartment while still experiencing the privacy of a single bedroom.
  • Single bedrooms will be offered in select North Campus townhouses. Enjoy the independence of a private entrance, convenient parking directly outside your door, and a shared kitchen while also experiencing a private bedroom and bathroom.
  • If you’re looking for a housing community for intensive study and quiet living, the new Quiet Housing Community in North Campus will meet your needs! Enjoy traditional Midrise living (a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment with shared living and kitchen spaces) with all-day quiet hours. A great option for students who are student teaching, who are carrying an intensive academic workload, who strive for an early bedtime, or who simply enjoy a little extra peace and quiet.

 

PLUS….

  • Neff Hall will continue to offer exclusively single housing options. While still benefiting from the social community of a traditional straightline building with communal lounge space and on-floor bathrooms, you will also enjoy the privacy of your own bedroom and the overall reduced occupancy within the building.
  • A limited number of single bedrooms will remain available in the North Campus Midrise. Like the townhouses, you will enjoy a shared kitchen and living area while maintaining a private bedroom and bathroom within your apartment.
