PROCEDURE FOR MAKING ROOM ASSIGNMENTS TO NEW STUDENTS
Due to the limited availability of on-campus housing, it is necessary that we establish these guidelines for awarding contracts for these rooms. Local students who live within commuting distance of the campus and transfer students are of the lowest priority when assignments are made. The procedure is on a first-come, first-served basis using the date on which the Acceptance Deposit and Housing Application Forms are received. The Acceptance Deposit and Housing Application must be submitted in order for a student to be offered a housing contract.
Initial contracts to new fall term students will be issued by early April. Signed contracts with the required room reservation fee must be returned by the date indicated on the agreement. This fee is non-refundable.
This process is monitored closely. Therefore, students who do not return the contract within the allotted time will have their contract cancelled and will be placed at the bottom of the waiting list.
Students admitted to the University have the option of making their own off-campus living arrangements in the event there are no vacancies on campus. The Housing Office may be able to give you some limited assistance or information regarding off-campus housing.
