Eligible single students, students with families, and faculty and staff members can apply for on-campus apartment housing at any time. Assignments are made on an ongoing basis as apartments become available. New assignments will be based on the move-in month indicated on the application (earlier move-in months will be assigned first), and then the date the application is received in the Office of Housing and Residence Life (first-come, first-served).  An applicant's position on the pre-assignment list may change as assignments are made, applications are received, and applicants remove themselves from the list. Unless a specific roommate is requested, the Housing and Residence Life Office will consider:

  1. move-in month
  2. date of application
  3. lifestyle preferences from the application
  4. class standing when making single student roommate assignments
