GUIDELINES AND INSTRUCTIONS ON THE ROOM SELECTION PROCESS

All students who are currently living in campus housing must visit the Housing Self-Service (via DataVU) in order to indicate to the Office of Residential Life your intentions for the 2016-2017 academic year. Students should indicate that they need on-campus housing by completing the On-Campus Housing Application Form for Fall 2016 no later than Friday, February 26, 2016. Online Room Selection will begin March 18 and will end March 23, 2016. Students will be able to view their room selection date and appointment time in their Housing Self-Service the week following Spring Break. Note: All students living in campus housing must have an active housing deposit on file with the Student Accounts Office.

 

Students who do not intend to live in campus housing for the 2016-2017 academic year (ex. transferring, studying abroad or have an internship for the Fall 2016 semester, graduation or other exemption criteria as described in the Student Guide to University Life) should visit their Housing Self Service and complete a Housing Cancellation Form for Fall 2016. To receive a 100% housing deposit refund students need to cancel their housing through HOUSING SELF-SERVICE no later than Friday, February 26, 2016

 PLEASE NOTE: all students with less than 88 credit hours by the start of the Fall 2016 academic semester are required to live in University-operated housing.


HOW DOES THE ROOM SELECTION PROCESS WORK?

Between February 1st and February 26th students will need to visit the Housing Self-Service to apply for on-campus housing or cancel their housing for Fall 2016. Roommates must be selected and confirmed by February 26th through Housing Self-Service. Students will be able to view their room selection date and appointment time in their Housing Self-Service March 15th & 16th. If a student has a roommate selected and confirmed, the person with the earliest appointment time can select the room once it is their appointment time. At that point, all confirmed roommates will be “pulled” into the room as well.  A student can pick their room any time after their appointment time.

The Office of Residential Life will assign students who do not participate in the room selection process, and are required to live on campus according to the University Housing Policy, to remaining rooms. In the event of a roommate change or cancellation, the Office of Residential Life may assign another student to the available space.
