Returning to campus housing for the 2019-20 academic year happens through an in-person process called Room Selection. We have unique apartments that offer larger spaces and more flexibility for our returning residents.
About Room Selection
The Room Selection process includes the following steps:
- Complete a housing agreement via the Housing Connection before April 1, 2019;
- Receive a randomized Room Selection appointment letter from Housing;
- Take a tour of our campus communities (see dates below); and
- Attend Room Selection based on your appointment time and work with staff to choose a space.

About the Hall Crawl and University Center Tour

You can tour the University Center and see potential units on Friday, April 12. For more information, view the tours page.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it cost anything to attend Room Selection?
No, there is no charge for attending Room Selection or for completing the housing agreement. Students who cancel after being assigned a specific space will be responsible for any associated fees.
What is a proxy?
A proxy is a person authorized to act on your behalf. If you cannot attend your assigned Room Selection appointment, complete the proxy form and recruit a trusted friend to be your proxy. The proxy form will be included with your Room Selection folder delivered to your student mailbox.
When do I choose my roommates?
Continuing students do not need to indicate a roommate when filling out the online housing agreement. Instead, they will choose a roommate during their in-person Room Selection appointment. Each roommate will need to submit a housing agreement prior to the appointment. Students should attend Room Selection at the same time as their preferred roommate(s) to be assigned together.
Please know it is not required to have picked roommates to participate in Room Selection, and due to space constraints, preferences are not guaranteed. If a continuing student does not attend Room Selection or submits the housing agreement after April 1, they will be assigned roommates at random.
