Procedure Summary:

The procedures below address the assignment of housing from the wait list for transfer students, re-admit students, off-campus and commuting students who request on-campus housing.


When an on-campus space becomes available, an offer is made to the first person on the waiting list. Students are permitted to request a specific type of housing and a specific roommate, but these requests can only be honored if space permits. Once an offer is made, students are given 48 hours to respond. Students are not permitted to “turn down” offers due to their location or room type that is available at that time. Once a space is turned down or 48 hours has passed, the Housing Office will move to the next person on the waiting list. The Associate Director of Residence Life and Housing is responsible for making the actual room assignments.
