Priority is assigned based on your housing application date, so the sooner you apply for housing, the more likely you are to choose the hall and room of your choice! Students must complete the parental verification process in order to receive their priority selection date and time. If you are under the age of 19, your parent or guardian will receive a separate email to verify your application. Please ensure this step is completed in a timely manner in order to keep an earlier selection time. 

Students will receive a reminder notification two weeks, one week, and 48 hours before the selection period opens. Students who submit their application after April 1, 2024, or do not select their room during the selection period, will be assigned by the housing office based on preferences and availability. Housing assignments and/or roommate requests are not guaranteed.
