Apply for Housing

Applying to the Residence Halls 

Fall 2023-Spring 2024 Residence Hall Applications are now live 

To complete the residence hall application for fall 2023/spring 2024, students will need to agree to the housing contract and submit an initial payment of $400. This $400 fee will be applied to the student’s housing costs in the fall.  

Students who are expecting to receive a financial aid award of $15,000 or more can elect to use their award to cover the $400 payment. Since fall 2023 financial aid has not been awarded yet, there would be no payment required at the time of application. 

At that time students who completed the first part of the application can now indicate hall and room-type preferences, roommate request, and more. Please log back into your housing application prior to May 1st to complete this portion of the application. You can now select preferences for your top building choices, the type of room you’d like, and submit roommate requests or fill out our roommate questionnaire to help you get paired with someone great.  Check out the residence hall finder

All incoming students who complete their application with preferences before to the housing priority date of May 1 2023 will have equal consideration in placement.

Returning students are encouraged to apply by February 15th to be able to hand pick their room for next year.



May 1 is the priority date for all new students to complete their residence hall application. All new students who apply before the priority deadline of will be considered equally in the first round of the placement process, regardless of the time/date of their application. We will do our best to accommodate student preferences in our placement process.

Housing placements for new students who meet the priority deadline of May 1 will be posted to housing contracts in early June. After early June, Housing Services will post assignments for new students to their housing contracts prior to the start of their New Coug Orientation session.

Apartment Applications

Single Student Apartment Applications for the 2023-2024 year will be available mid-February.

For single student apartments, students can apply individually, and when they have a full group (one person per bedroom) they will move to the waitlist. Offers are made as space is available.
