COVID-19 Update: On-campus housing capacity will be reduced by 31 percent due to the conversion of many multi-occupancy rooms to single occupancy.

Rooms on campus in traditional residence halls, and apartments with community bathrooms, will be assigned as singles to reduce on-campus population density and to support social distancing. On-campus housing assignments will be based upon timely receipt of application submissions as well as requests for special accommodations. I urge you to visit our online housing application page on the University website ASAP.

For rooms with more than one occupant, social distancing configurations, which may include the placement of dividers, will be put into place.

To accommodate the need for additional housing space, the University is contracting externally to secure additional space at nearby hotels (Sheraton) and apartment buildings.

While students will not be asked to vacate the residence halls at the conclusion of the face-to-face instruction in November (though it is recommended), any student wishing to vacate his/her residence is free to do so. Please note that no refunds will be issued to students electing to vacate campus housing at the end of face-to-face instruction.

Once you have submitted a completed housing application, you will be able to participate in Roommate Grouping by logging into the housing system

Prior to beginning, you must know the prospective roommate’s proper spelling of their first and last name. 

Based on the student’s status of being a new or returning student, they will select the appropriate link. The student can either create a group or accept a group request. When a student initiates a roommate group, they are the group leader. This person sends invitations to other students inviting them to be roommates. The students can either accept and become members of this group, or they can decline or ignore the request.

Consideration will be made based on the following criteria: accepted members, matching order of building preference, and if the agreement was accepted prior to student being assigned.
