Housing Priority Deadline

Students who submit their housing contract and $500 housing deposit by May 1 will be guaranteed housing.  Students who submit their housing contract and $500 housing deposit after May 1 will be placed in housing as space permits. If no housing is available, students will be placed on a waiting list and will be assigned to a room as soon as one becomes available based on when their contract and housing deposit were received.  Students may be assigned to a temporary space until a more permanent room* opens.


The practice of consolidation provides Residence Life with a means of reallocating student room assignments to meet unique needs and challenges, such as damage to facilities, pest control issues, renovations, and gender incompatibility between space available and space needed.  Information about consolidation is provided in the Resident Handbook and on this webpage in an effort to educate both students and families. Our goal is to be proactive in the event that one of these situations arises. The Office of Residence Life reserves the right to consolidate students into alternative housing at any time Students may be reassigned to a building, room and room type that they did not preference or choose.
