Admitted Students - Housing

Student Housing

If you apply for housing before May 1, you are eligible to choose your own room as part of the application process. If you apply after May 1, your room assignment is made on a first-come, first-serve basis.  All freshmen are required to live on campus unless they qualify for an exemption.
