New Student Housing

After you have been admitted to the university, the following steps must be taken to ensure on-campus housing:

Fill out a housing/new student questionnaire by logging into your Scholar account.  The form can be found under the Campus Life tab/Residence Life page.

Those who wish to reside off campus must fill out a Commuter Application and provide documentation.  This form can be accessed within Scholar as well under the Campus Life tab/Residence Life page.

The deadline for housing applications is January 7th, 2016. An assignment cannot be made until the following have been received:

1.  Enrollment deposit

2.  Orientation fee

3.  Health form and immunization records

Priority is given on a first-come, first-served basis according to the date all forms have been received. Once a room assignment has been made, this information will be available in the student’s university-issued Scholar account.

Keep in mind that all returning students receive priority housing. With rising enrollment in past years, there has been an increased demand for residence hall rooms and space is limited; new students should plan to have all forms submitted no later than May 31st, 2016.
