Upperclass Housing Selection

There are two housing assignment processes for upperclass students who were admiited to the university as "resident students":

  1. Rising Sophomores
  2. Rising Juniors and Guaranteed Seniors

Students are issued a computer-generated random housing selection time and are able to select their own housing assignment online.

Classification Definitions

Rising Sophomores - a current first-year student living in a residence hall, enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student, and who applied to the University and was accepted as a resident.

Rising Juniors - a current second-year student living in a residence hall, enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student, and  who applied to the University and was accepted as a resident.

Guaranteed Seniors - a current third-year student living in a residence hall who was guaranteed a 4th year of housing through a special scholarship or academic program at the time of admission to the university.

PLEASE NOTE: Because of the large number of guaranteed students seeking on-campus housing each year, transfer and commuting students who received on-campus housing via the wait list are not eligible to participate in the housing selection processes. These students may request a second year of on-campus housing via the wait list.

If you are unsure of your classification, please feel free to check with the Office for Residence Life so we can assist you.
