FAQ

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.
