On-Campus Accommodations

For high priority on the list of University housing, you must complete an application for admission and a separate application for housing and submit them at the same time. Rooms will be assigned on a rolling basis until all available rooms are filled. You may apply for housing in advance of registration for summer courses, but you will not be permitted to remain in campus housing if you do not register for classes or withdraw from the program. Applications must be submitted online. Full payment must be made by credit card upon application submission.

Application Processing Fee
-$50 non-refundable application processing fee prior to April 15
-$100 non-refundable application processing fee after April 15
