If interested in Traditional Halls – applications are due March 25th, 2021 by 11:59 p.m. (PST)
***Students looking to apply for South Hall and still want the option for traditional halls will need to select all the halls the would like to request on their Learning Community Application. They do not need to resubmit another application unless they need to change requests.
2. Email Notification Sent in Early April. This email will provide an online form for each student to share their preferences.
3. Preference Form Deadline is approximately two weeks after the Notification Email is sent.
4. Assignments will be made Virtually using these forms and the Housing Application emails will be sent by early May. Students will be emailed Hall, Room and Roommate assignments for the 2021-2022 academic year. In previous years this was an in-person event, which will be an option once restrictions are lifted.
Late Applications: Students who do not submit their Housing Applications on time can still be assigned housing if they have someone who will “bring them in” as a roommate. All remaining late applications will have an opportunity to apply for housing but space and opportunity may be limited
Holds: Students with a hold on their student account must resolve the hold prior to applying for a room. Log into Banner Web to check for holds. If you have a hold, review Student Financial Services website.
Roommates: If students elect to list a roommate on their Learning Community Application the only opportunity our office has to approve the request is for all roommates to list each other, if roommate requests do not match on the applications we do not pair roommates.
Need For Special Housing: Students with special housing needs must complete a Need for Special Housing Application and if part of the request includes a single room accommodation a Single Room Application should also be submitted. Contact Residential Life for more information.
Uncertain Housing Plans: Students still determining their plans for Fall 2021 should complete the Learning Community Application and contact Residence Life.
Questions or Concerns: Students with a special situation or concern should contact the Department of Residential Life in University Center 161, at 253-535-7200 or at email@example.com.
