Initial housing offers for new students are part of the admissions process. Upon accepting an offer of admission to the university (if housing is included with the offer), new students will have the option to concurrently accept the housing offer. Admissions will then notify housing of your request for university housing and the Department of Housing will send you detailed instructions on completing the on-line housing application. The application will allow you to include hall preferences (no specific assignment is guaranteed), indicate roommate preferences, and complete a roommate matching questionnaire. Students are guaranteed University housing for their entire undergraduate academic career provided that they continue to meet all application, payment, registration and occupancy requirements.
