  • Sign-up Process

    There are 3 steps to the sign-up process this year. The steps are outlined below.

    • There are also online videos available to help walk students through the steps of the process.
    • Step 1: Application- Begins February 1, 2020
      • Review and sign the license agreement
        • Students under 18 will have to have their parent/guardian sign off on the license agreement. This is done via email.
      • Make $125 non-refundable housing application payment
    • Step 2: Roommate Selection- Upon completion of application through March 15
      • Request and create roommate groups
      • Up to 3 people can be selected as roommates
      • All roommate groups must be mutual
      • Students will still be able to select a roommate after this process, however, they will have to do that independently of the system. This will require far more communication between the students.
        • Think about this being the difference between purchasing plane tickets with your family all together, you're then seated together. If you buy tickets on the same flight with friends, but not together, then you need to discuss seat locations.
      • Students can monitor roommate progress via the Self-Service Portal
    • Step 3: Room Selection- Begins April March 20th, 2020
      • Students will be given a date/time to enter into the room selection process.
      • Students will be able to search and select from available rooms.
        • Think about this similar to selecting your own train, bus, or plane seat.
