New/Entering Student Application Process

This is a “lottery type” process where all applicants are randomly assigned a computer generated date and time to select a room type. Housing is not guaranteed.

By June 13th all applicants will be notified of their housing status:

Assigned -These students are guaranteed housing and awarded a room type.

Unassigned - These students are guaranteed housing. They have not been selected for a space or guaranteed a particular room type. These students will be notified of their assignment prior to their fall arrival.

Hold - These students were not selected for a space. They will be contacted through the summer up to the first 2 weeks of classes as spaces become available.
