On April 30, returning students will receive their 2021-22 housing assignment via email. 

On-campus housing assignments will be made by Res Life staff (not self-selected by students). They will be based on students’ class year, accommodation status, and their preferences listed in their Room Registration application. 


Accept Housing

Students must log back into the Housing Portal by May 14 to confirm their assignment. Students will be asked to do the following to confirm their assignment:

  • Select a meal plan
  • Sign a housing contract
  • Sign a COVID addendum

If a student does not sign their contract by May 14 they will be removed from academic year housing and will receive an email confirming their cancelled assignment.

Cancelling Housing

The deadline to cancel housing contracts is June 1, 2021. If a student wishes to cancel their housing contract after June 1, they must submit a petition for approval
