Room Selection

This Room Selection information is for current students. If you are an incoming First Year student, your housing assignment will be made by our staff during the late spring and early summer before you arrive on campus. Visit our Accepted Students page to learn more about housing assignments for incoming students.

Rising Third & Fourth Year Students (Current Second Year and Older Students)

Room Selection for rising third and fourth year students is now open! Don't miss out on your chance to live on campus for the 2018-2019 Academic Year.  Enjoy the convenience of living on-campus again. We will have space for more than 400 third and fourth year students.

You can be among the first to live in one of our two brand new residence halls - Withrow and Presidents - located near North Quad and the Baseball Field.  Withrow will feature a large Starbucks store in the lower level, and both halls are near the North Quad Fitness Center in Martin Hall.  Great locations like Heritage Commons, Maplestreet, Bishop, Beechwoods, Ogden, and others will be available to choose from as well! 

We strive to make selecting your room as easy as possible. Our MyCard process will give you flexibility to search for private rooms, pull in roommates, and make your own room changes, simply by going online.

Waiting List

Due to the first and second-year live on requirement, we must reserve a predetermined number of rooms for our incoming first year and rising second year residents. In the event that we reach our capacity for Third & Fourth Year students, you will have the option of signing up to be on our Housing Waiting List.
