Step 2 - Students Receive a Housing Selection Time

Students who complete the housing application and contract will subsequently be issued a computer-generated random housing selection time. Separate selection times are generated for male and female students. 

Please note: Factors such as previous housing assignment, assignment to a converted triple room, difficulties with roommates, facilities concerns, academic standing, participation in special activities and other factors are not considered when generating selection times.  

Step 3 - Students Select Housing Online at Designated Time

Students will be able to choose their housing assignment and roommate(s) online at at their designated housing selection time. The roommate with the earlier selection time will be able to secure housing for himself/herself and all of his/her roommates.

  • Rising Juniors and Seniors will select in February.
  • Rising Sophomores will select in late March/early April.

Please note: The demand to reside in certain halls, especially Sullivan and Sheehan Halls, often exceeds the capacity of those halls.  It is possible that students with a later selection time may not secure their first or second choice of housing. It is important that students have thought about other housing options beyond their first or second choices.
