Housing Accommodations are managed through a partnership with the Office of Specialized Services and Residence Life.
Residence Life Policies
Housing application forms and deposit deadlines requested by Residence Life must be submitted in accordance with the policies set by that office. Students requesting a housing accommodation are subject to the same limitations in regard to placement (i.e. credit stipulation for roommate/suitemates) as any other continuing student. Because housing selection options are limited, meeting deadlines set by Residence Life is imperative.
Residence Life Deadlines
While a housing accommodation request can be submitted at any time, meeting the deadlines listed below will significantly increase the ability of Residence Life to arrange for an accommodation that has been approved through the OSS Housing Accommodation Request process. Not meeting a deadline reduces the ability of Residence Life to meet an accommodation request, it also reduces their ability to meet a student’s preference for the residence hall, special living options, and roommates/suitemates. For a student’s housing accommodation to be considered timely the student must complete the OSS affiliation and request process by the following deadlines:
FALL Spring Summer
Continuing students: March 15th November 1st April 1st
First-year students: May 15th November 1st
Transfer students: June 15th November 1st
Students who miss the deposit or accommodation request deadline will be placed on a list for placement over the summer or during the room change process. Placement is always based on availability. Attempts will still be made to meet the student’s accommodation needs, however, arrangements may not be able to be made until just before the start of the semester or may have to wait until the official room change process at the start of the semester. In some cases, a late request will result in Residence Life’s inability to meet an approved accommodation request for the semester in which it was originally requested.
