Virtual Housing Selection for Returning Students
Housing selection has been moved to a virtual platform (zoom) to allow current students to still select into a room of their choice.
Please refer to The Housing Selection Process Guidebook for basic information regarding housing selection. Please see below for specific details regarding the virtual process.
Please note: Current resident students do not need to submit a housing deposit to participate in selection. We understand the COVID-19 has caused hardships for students. We will roll your deposit from last year to hold your spot; those that have paid will have this past year’s deposit released to their account once we confirm all belongings have been removed from your currently assigned room.
