Housing Selection

The Office of Residential Life staff has spent a great deal of time discussing various issues pertaining to the housing selection including locations for pull-ins, first-year rooms and specialty areas. You may contact us with any housing selection questions you may have and we would be happy to help you throughout the process.


In order to participate in the housing selection process, you must register for classes for the upcoming fall semester AND your financial accounts must be clear. If either of these conditions is not met, you will not be able to select a room through the housing selection process. If you have any questions regarding these requirements, please contact either the Registrar or the Business Office. If you do not clear your Business Office account by the time you return in August, you will not be issued a room key.

Specialty Options

Specialty houses give students the ability to live in more unique housing options on campus. Specialty options can be chosen through the process designated for each option.  Any rooms remaining unassigned after the specialty housing selection processes will be offered through the General Housing Selection.

Housing Selection Information

  • Any attempt to manipulate the housing selection process and/or change room assignments during or after the housing selection is a severe policy violation.
  • In an effort to enable groups of students to live together, students can form roommate groups of up to 6 students who will then select housing together.
  • All areas on campus are gender inclusive except Kirkland 2nd floor (women only) and Kirkland 1st floor (men only).
  • First-year spaces include Keehn, Major, Dunham (basement, 1st and 2nd floors and part of the 3rd floor), North, South (3rd and 4th floors), Glenview, Wallace Johnson and Wertimer.

  • Students planning to study off campus for the fall semester should not participate in the housing selection. If you select a room in the housing selection and then later decide to take a leave of absence, the space you selected will be given to another student through the fall housing wait list process.

  • When you select a room in the housing process, you have committed to that room for the entire academic year. All housing selections are final.
