How to Apply – Returning Undergraduates

Current Housing Residents

If you currently live in a University Housing residence hall or apartment and would like to stay with us for the next academic year, you will need to reapply through the Returning Resident Housing process. Registration begins in January. 

University Housing makes every effort to accommodate both new and returning students. However, we are limited in the number of spaces we can offer returning undergraduates.

Returning Resident Housing 

Off-Campus Housing Residents

If you are not currently living in University Housing, review the Returning Resident Housing calendar for details. While current residents have first priority in the housing selection process, we make every effort to place all students who would like to stay with us.

Returning Study Abroad/Co-op/Internship Students

Students who lived in University Housing immediately prior to study abroad/University sponsored co-op/internship program are eligible to participate in the Returning Resident Housing process at the same time as current residents and will be able to participate in the online room selection process. 

Students who did not live with us immediately prior to their abroad experience are eligible to apply as off-campus students. 

  • Students needing winter-term housing should contact us between November 1 and December 15 to receive priority. 
  • Students needing fall-term housing should contact us between December 1 and January 15 to receive priority. 
  • Please submit your online inquiry according to these dates.
  • We will email information to you within five business days of receiving your online form.
