New Applicants

How to Apply

The housing application for the 2019-20 academic year opens on October 4, 2018 at 9 a.m. central time (USA). Accepted students are encouraged to apply as early as possible because room selection timeslots are issued in the order that they are received. Students wishing to select each other as roommates must apply during the same round time period. Roommate pairing of students who apply in different round time periods are not guaranteed. Since this process is new, please read all the instructions before selecting "Apply Here". Applicants may change their preferences in the student portal until January 31, 2019. Below is a summary of the four-part application process.

Additionally, failure to submit the $200 confirmation deposit to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by May 1 will result in automatic cancellation of the housing application and loss of prepayments.
