Student Housing Contracts are a binding agreement between the student and the University. Student Housing offers 3 quarter (10 Month) contracts and 4 quarter (12 month) contracts.

Apartment Types

Students can apply for one of several apartment types:

  • One Bedroom Apartment (Single Student)
    • One student requesting a private, one bedroom apartment
  • Two Bedroom, Shared Apartment (Single Student)
    • A two student, shared apartment. Each student has their own bedroom & bathroom.
    • If requesting a particular roommate, both students must request each other on the Student Housing application. Student Housing doesn't guarantee that preferences will be honored, but will try to accommodate when possible.

Housing Application

New students interested in Student Housing are encouraged to join the Housing Wait List today

Student Housing will maintain a wait list of students who are interested in Student Housing starting October 1st and will build the waitlist through March 15th, and these students will have priority access to the Student Housing Application when it is sent to them on March 1st. Apartments will be assigned in the order that applications are received, so don’t delay your application. Submitting your application by the listed deadlines will increase the likelihood that you will receive an assignment in accord with your primary preferences.

Student Housing applications aren’t binding, but Student Housing Contracts are. Contracts will be granted to students based on the availability of apartments, and the order of Applications. Only students with confirmed admission to the university will be granted Contracts. The Application for Student Housing will be sent to the students on the wait list on March 1st, it will be made available on-line to all students on March 15th.  Contracts will continue to be issued until all spaces are filled.

A completed application for Student Housing does not secure a space for students in on-campus housing. Only when a student returns a Student Housing Contract with the required $500 prepayment and that contract is accepted by the Coordinator of Residence Life will a student be assured a space. Contract acceptance will be indicated in writing, along with a confirmed assignment and move-in information at a later date.
