Room Selection 2018-2019 for Current Students
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 2018-2019 academic year.
Students should indicate that they need on-campus housing by completing the On-Campus Housing Application for Fall 2018 in Housing Self-Service starting Monday, January 29, 2018. The On-campus Housing Application for Fall 2018 is due Friday, February 23, 2018 for students interested in participating in the apartment selection process. The On-campus Housing Application for Fall 2018 is due Wednesday, February 28, 2018 for students participating in the general room selection.
Online Room Selection will begin March 23 and will end March 29, 2018. Students will be able to view their room selection date and appointment time in their Housing Self-Service the week following Spring Break.
Students who do not intend to live in campus housing for the 2018-2019 academic year (ex. transferring, studying abroad, graduation, etc.) should visit their Housing Self Service and complete a Housing Cancellation Form for Fall 2018. To receive a 100% housing deposit refund students need to cancel their housing through HOUSING SELF-SERVICE no later than Wednesday, February 28, 2018.
PLEASE NOTE: All students with less than 6 semesters of living in campus housing before the start of the Fall 2018 academic semester are required to live in University-operated housing.
