Calendar and Access Times

Housing Sign-Up
October 3, 2017 through April 15, 2018

No matter where you choose to live in University Housing, you'll enjoy safe, clean, and well-maintained accommodations within a residential community environment that encourages academic excellence. University Housing provides convenience, community, award-winning dining, and social and cultural programs and events without the hassles of establishing a new household, purchasing furniture, ordering utilities and internet, finding roommates, and all the other worries of living off-campus.

Same Room Phase

Tuesday, October 3 at 1:00 p.m. – Thursday, October 5 at 11:59 p.m.

If you live in an undergraduate residence hall or Daniels or Sherman Hall, you may log on and select your same room only. Any current resident may select their SAME, current room for Fall 2018–Spring 2019. During this time, no other room selections can be made. If you do not select your same room during this time, it will become available to other residents.

Special Priority Phase 

Tuesday, October 10 at 1:00 p.m. – Thursday, October 12 at 11:59 p.m.

This phase of Housing Sign-Up is available to hall residents whose current room is not available in Fall 2018–Spring 2019. These residents are given special priority to choose any available space in any available hall. Residents who are eligible for the special priority phase will be notified by email. If your current room is not available and you do not select a space by October 12, you can come back at any of the later times the Housing Sign-up site is open. Note: Current undergraduate hall residents will be able to select a space in Daniels or Sherman Hall beginning Tuesday, October 24 at 1:00 p.m.
