The Housing Deposit & Application

The housing application will be available on students' myHousing portal within 2-3 business days after a student has submitted their $150 admissions deposit or on June 5, 2024, whichever is later. 

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. (Please note, next year housing charges are posted on May 1 of the prior year). Acceptable forms of payment are Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. 

Roommate Selection

Students will begin to have the opportunity to either search for potential roommates if they have a particular person in mind, complete a compatibility profile and view potential matches, or select a random bed during the selection process. Roommate groups can be anywhere from 2-4 people.

Room Selection

New students can select from one of our three residence halls on W27th Street. Students who wish to live in Kaufman Hall, our upper class residence hall, should contact Residential Life for more information.
