Current Resident Renewal Timeline & Important Information

Please note: The Room Selection process operates on a first-come, first-served basis.  Time slots will open based on credit hours earned by December 31st, 2021.

January 18, 2022 – Housing Application opens online

February 17, 2022 – Same Room Selection Day

Some rooms are not available for same-room selection. If this is the case, you will be given a timeslot to select a new room on February 18 during “Non-Same Room/Displaced Student Selection Day.” To see what your timeslot is, visit the “Housing Deposit & Timeslot Status” page of your Housing Application in the Housing Portal.

Single Rooms and Double-Room Buyouts are available to students during same room selection for those students who are currently occupying a single or double-room buyout space. Please be mindful that these room types are popular and will likely be taken by students assigned to a later room self-selection timeslot if you do not select your current single or double-room buy-out on same room selection day.

To select your same room (if you are living in a double room) you also need to have already paired with a roommate before the system will allow you to select your same room. The roommate you have paired with does not need to be the same roommate as you currently have.

February 18, 2022 – Non-Same Room/Displaced Student Selection Day 

The following room locations are rooms where current residents will not be able to self-select their room on “Same Room Selection” day and will be given a timeslot to select a different room on February 18.

Important Information

Complete your Housing Application and Submit Your Deposit – Be sure to do this at least 24 business hours prior to your self-selection timeslot to ensure your timeslot is assigned in time for you to self-select your space when your timeslot opens. It can take at least 24 hours for your housing deposit to be processed. If you currently live on campus, your housing deposit will carry-forward; you do not need to resubmit your housing deposit if you currently have a room assignment and housing deposit on file.

Single Room Self-Selection – These spaces are the most popular. Single rooms are likely to be completely taken within the first day or two of room self-selection.

Double-Buyout Self-Selection (BO-Double Suite) – These spaces are already pre-designated and current double rooms will not be changed to a buyout space during the room self-selection process. Please be aware that the price of a single room and a double-buyout room are different. Look at the Room Type to see if it is single or double buy-out which is listed as BO-Double Suite. Housing rates can be found HERE. There are no buy-outs available in Campbell Apartments.

Accept a Roommate Before Room Self-Selection – Be sure to request and accept a roommate prior to attempting to self-select a double room or a double apartment. Single students cannot select a room with more than one bed space. If you would like to live in a triple suite or triple apartment, you will need to request and accept two roommates. If you are the first person to complete the room selection between you and your roommate(s), you will be able to select the bed/room for you AND your roommate(s). It is important to talk to your roommate(s) about who will be selecting the room, where you would like to stay, and what room type you would like.

Pet Housing – Students interested in Pet Housing in Dobson 1st floor must complete the Pet Housing section in the housing application and upload all registration documents. Once Residence Life has received and processed your documents, you will be able to self-select a room in Dobson Hall. If Residence Life receives your application/documents after self-selection has ended, you will be manually assigned to a room. If you and your desired roommate are interested in a deluxe double room, you will both need to go through the Pet Housing section. One of the students will not be able to bring a pet and will need to select, “I am interested but I will not be bringing a pet.”
