Returning Students || Fall 2016-Spring 2017
Returning students must complete the reapplication process by May 1 or risk losing hall/room assignment, paying additional deposit and reapplying for housing.

*Keep in mind that if you fall under the University housing requirement, you may not qualify to move-off campus unless you are graduating or withdrawing.  There are housing exemptions available for students who qualify; exemptions are considered but rarely granted.  It is recommended that you sign-up for an on-campus room even though you apply for an exemption; if you are not approved for the exemption, you will at least have an on-campus room you WANT to be in.  For more information regarding the housing requirement and exemptions, visit the Requirements page.
