Housing Deposit ($150): The Housing Deposit is typically paid upon a student’s initial request to live on campus. MOST students who currently live on campus have paid this deposit and should not have to pay this prior to Housing Selection process.

Room Reservation Deposit ($250): The Room Reservation is required for all students wishing to participate in any aspect of the Housing Selection process. When the student is billed for their housing in the fall, the $250 will be credited back to the student’s account toward the cost of the room assignment. A student looses this room reservation deposit if they choose or are placed into an assignment during any part of the Housing Selection process and then decide not to live on campus for the fall term.

Housing Application: The Housing Application is available online, via the student’s self-service account, within 24 hours (or the next business day) of the room reservation deposit applied to a student’s account. This application MUST be COMPLETED in order to participate in the Housing Selection process.

If you are unable to access your application, there are three possible reasons

  • You do not have a housing deposit on file
  • You do not have a room reservation deposit on file
  • You do not have an emergency contact listed through your self-service account
If you have, further questions post them on Facebook and we will respond as soon as possible.
