All rising sophomore, junior and senior resident students who want to participate in the Housing Lottery for the Fall 2024 semester must pay a non-refundable $300 housing deposit by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, February 16, 2024. Without an on-time deposit, a space is not guaranteed for the fall semester.

Room Selection Process

Room selection is an exciting time on campus as students begin to prepare for the next academic year. For those of you that have done this before, you can attest to the fact that it is essential that you understand the process in its entirety. Every year brings some changes; sometimes to the housing options, building designations or to availability of singles or apartments. Please check your e-mail and the StarRez Housing Portal regularly as there is a lot of information that will affect how you choose your room for next year. Know that there could be some changes to room availability/options up until room selection. We will do our best to notify the campus of any significant changes.

As you begin to think about where you want to live next year, you should think carefully about the people with whom you will live. Your satisfaction depends largely on your roommate(s) and the ability for you to respect and have civility between you. This decision should be a thoughtful one.

It is important to remember that there are a limited number of singles, triples, quads, and apartments. Also, regardless of your lottery number, you may not get your first choice. You should be prepared with a back-up plan in case you are not able to select your first choice and most desired location.
