We are so glad you’re interested in living on campus again next year! If you want to keep your current room/apartment fir the 2021-22 academic year, read the “Stayers” section below. If you want to move to a different location, scroll to the “Movers” section.

Stayers: I Want to stay in my same room or apartment for 2021/22!

If you love your room or apartment and want to stay in the exact sane space next year – awesome! We’re glad you’re coming back and you can contract now to keep your space.

To keep your same space:

  1. Login to our Housing Portal between now and January 2021. 
  2. Click on “On-campus Housing Contract” 
  3. Follow the process to renew your room for next year 

Have roommates that live with you now and plan to stay? Great! They should follow the steps above to keep their space so you can live together next year.

Want to bring new roommates in to your space? No problem! If you know a current roommate is leaving and you will have a vacant space in your room, you will be able to pull someone else in to your space during selection in January. The person you want to live with next year is a “mover” and should follow the instructions below. 

movers: I want to move somewhere else for 2021/22!

You love the convenience of campus life! But, you want to move somewhere different than your current room or apartment. 

During our selection process in January, you can move to a different room in your building or move to any hall, suite or apartment on campus. You’ll be able to explore open space and pick the exact one you want beginning in January.

For now, submit your contract and, if you’re planning to live with others, form your roommate groups so you’re ready to go when selection opens in January.

To contract and form a roommate group, follow these steps:

  1. Login to our Housing Portal anytime between now and January 2021. 
  2. Click on “On-Campus Housing Contract” 
  3. Follow the process to submit your contract and form a roommate group, if applicable 
  4.  You’re ready to choose a space in January! Full details on selection will be available soon. 

When can I choose exactly where I want to live? Full details about how to choose where you want to live will be available soon. You’ll make your choice in January.  

What if I submit a contract after January 2021? No problem, we’ll have space for you! Submitting and forming your roommate group by early January just gives you the most available options. If you submit after that, you’ll be able to choose open spaces and the dates associated with that process will be available soon.  

What if I change my mind or don’t find the space I want? You have until March 1, 2021, to cancel your 2021-22 housing contract without penalty. And, if you change your mind again, you can always submit a contract and live with us. The process just looks a little different after the March cancellation date. 

I want to keep my room while I look for another space, can I do that? No. You can only have one space in the system at a time. If you know you want to move to a different place, follow the movers process – we’ll have space for you! And, if no one selects your room, you’d potentially be able to choose it again.
