Phase 1 - April 3 to May 5

Step 1: The Housing Deposit & Application

Opens April 3, 2023

The housing application will be available on students' myHousing portal beginning April 3, 2023 at 10AM EST. We strongly encourage residents to apply as early as possible. Any applicant after April 19, 2023 will automatically be moved to Phase 2 of the process. 

Students will submit a non-refundable $500 housing deposit in order to complete the housing application. This is NOT an additional fee and will be credited toward your total housing charges. Acceptable forms of payment are Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. 

Step 2: Selection Number Released

April 21, 2023

Residential Life will send out selection numbers beginning April 21, 2023 by 5PM. Any student who was able to submit a deposit and application prior to April 19, 2023 will be given a selection number. This number will represent the order in which the student is able to choose thier room number. 

Step 3: Roommate Selection

Opens April 24, 2023

Students will begin to have the opportunity to form a roommate group during this time. Roommate groups can be anywhere from 2-4 people. Note, the student in the group with the lowest selection number should be prepared to choose the room for the group during room selection. A step by step guide for this process will be provided to all students participating in this process via their FIT email.  

Step 4: Room Selection

Begins May 3, 2023

During the final step, students will choose their room and room number. Kaufman Hall has multiple room types, single apartments, double apartments, triple apartments, quad apartments, or triple / single rooms in a quad configuration. During this time room types may fill up and your group should be prepared with backup plans. Double apartments are the most common in Kaufman.
