Assignment Policies

Housing Assignment Priority System

During the process of assigning registered students with completed housing applications (defined as a completed online housing application and any required housing deposits), University Housing reserves the right to assign students using the below stated assignment guidelines and priorities.

First year (Freshmen) students are required to live in a University Housing residence hall; Second Year (Sophomore) students must live in University Residence Halls, University-Affiliated Housing or University-Approved Properties.

  1. Matriculated full-time first year students with a completed housing application and required housing deposit.
  2. Matriculated full-time second year students will be guaranteed an assignment if a completed application is submitted by the published deadline. A Returning Student Wait List will be enacted if the demand for on-campus housing exceeds the University's capacity for returning students. This Returning Student Wait List will be managed independently of any other Wait List.
  3. Matriculated full-time transfer students will be provided a housing assignment on a space-available basis. A Transfer Student Wait List will be enacted if the demand for on-campus housing exceeds the University's capacity for transfer students. This Transfer Student Wait List will be managed independently of any other Wait List. More information on the University Housing Wait List policies >>
  4. Matriculated full-time returning students will be provided a housing assignment on a space-available basis. More information on the University Housing Wait List policies >>
  5. Matriculated full-time graduate students will be provided a housing assignment on a space-available basis.
  6. Matriculated part-time students will be provided a housing assignment on a space-available basis.

  8. Non-matriculated part-time students will be provided a housing assignment on a space-available basis for a period of no more than three consecutive academic terms.

Consolidation Policy

University Housing may re-assign any student who is in a half-vacancy for more than 24-hours. A half-vacancy is defined as a bedroom or suite which is not full.

In order to maximize all space on campus and ensure all students have an equitable opportunity to live on-campus, University Housing reserves the right to consolidate suites and/or bedrooms of the same gender which were not filled during the self-selection process or within 24-hours of the original Self-Selection reservation. Confirmed roommate pairings will be moved together.
