When you are admitted to the University, you will receive access to the online housing application, which will include a questionnaire designed to help us match you with a compatible roommate. While we cannot guarantee a perfect roommate match, we try to assign students together who have similar interests. It is important that you complete the online application honestly. By July 1st, prior to your arrival, you will receive a letter notifying you of your roommate. At that time, we encourage you to contact your prospective roommate, not only to get to know him/her, but also to coordinate who will bring certain items. We do supply each student with a computer/data line, access to the wireless network and one TV service connection per room.

Our campus remains open during Spring Break and Thanksgiving Break and students may stay in their residence hall during those times.
For Winter Break, students must complete a break housing application if they wish to stay for any dates past Fall residence hall closing or if they wish to return early before Spring semester check-in.  Reference our housing calendar for specific dates.
While students of the same gender share rooms and bathrooms, the residence hall floors are co-ed, so both male students and female students may find themselves living on the same floor together.
Bathrooms are cleaned weekly by our cleaning services staff with the exception of Doolittle Hall which is touched up daily by our cleaning services staff.
All students including first-year students are allowed to have vehicles.  Due to space concerns, we ask that students park only one vehicle on campus.  All students are required to register their vehicles and must display a parking permit at all times.  Parking permits are issued from the Safety Office on-line.  Please visit the Campus Safety & Security department for additional parking information and to complete the on-line parking permit application.

Any damages are charged to the responsible party, if known.  If something is damaged, please report it to a Housing and Residence Life staff member.  If the responsible party is not identified, the damages may be divided evenly by the residents who live in the area (if in a bedroom, it may be split between roommates.  If in a common lounge, it may be split between all residents of the apartment, suite, or building.  See our Community Standards page for more information regarding damages.

All first-year students under the age of 21 are required to live in university residence halls and apartments managed by the Department of Housing and Residence Life for their first two (2) years on campus unless they meet the following exemptions:

A comprehensive campus food service program is available to students.  First-year and second year students are required to purchase a meal plan.

Our Housing Calendar includes important housing dates throughout each semester.

Room change requests are not guaranteed and are honored on a space available basis as well as a variety of other factors. Housing and Residence Life's room change process can be found in our ERNIE announcements.
