If you choose to live in multiple occupancy rooms/apartments, you must sign up as a group and fill all beds within the room/apartment at the time of online selection.
Members of the room/apartment will have the first opportunity to fill vacancies that may occur during the year by pulling in a roommate of choice. Single vacancies in blocks will be offered to the block members in priority number order prior to going outside of the block to fill, if a written request is make within 24 hours of the vacancy occurring.
You must have all roommate’s pull-in pin and password to secure an apartment, independent block or double room.
Pre-plan with your roommate(s) where you would like to live. Visit or chat with the students who currently live in those rooms. Review the Guide to Community Living for information about the different buildings around campus.

Study Abroad (STAB)
If you are studying abroad for the fall 2013 semester and you desire campus housing for the spring 2013 semester, you must log on to electronically self select a “Study Abroad room” and a “Study Abroad dining plan” and agree to the Residence Hall and Dining Agreement.
In Mid-December 2013, you will then be required to electronically self select your actual spring 2014 room and dining membership. Detailed information on this process will be available in late November 2013.
By electronically signing this Residence Hall and Dining Agreement and selecting a “Study Abroad room” and “Study Abroad dining plan”, you will be financially obligated for spring semester room rent and dining services charges.
Failure to choose a “Study Abroad room” and a “Study Abroad dining plan” during the Room and Dining Selection process will result in your status being changed from resident to non-resident and loss of your guarantee to campus housing, including the opportunity to live in Greek Blocks.
Yet-To-Be-Assigned Housing (YTBA)
If you were unable to choose a room during the General Room Selection process or perhaps had no luck matching up with a roommate, it is now time to select your housing and meal plan through the Gateway to the Student Web Self-Assign YTBA process.
The YTBA Self Selection process is available mid-July.
YTBA assignments are selected online in priority number order.
To see a list of available rooms click here.
Due to the three-year residency requirement, rising juniors must select a room and meal plan during this process. If not selected by the end of the YTBA process, you will automatically be assigned to an available bed and a freshman minimum meal plan.
Rising Seniors are not required to live on campus. If you have not selected housing by the end of this process, you will loose your four year housing guarantee and your status will be changed to non-resident student. You must register your off campus address by going through the Off Campus Housing Application Process.
