Contract Binding

Continuing students who apply during Housing Selection and are assigned a room are bound by the terms of the Residence Hall Agreement as of May 1. This includes required students (rising sophomores) and non-required students (juniors, seniors, second year graduate students, professional study and doctoral students.)

Housing Waitlists

Due to the first- and second-year undergraduate student residential requirements, specific floors and rooms will not be available for the housing selection process. This restriction will limit the number of spaces that will be readily available for returning students to select and may result in a waitlist for housing. When the demand for space for first- and second-year students has been satisfied, additional spaces will be offered to students on the waitlist. Any additional questions can be answered by contacting the Office of Residence Life. Waitlisted students will be notified of their status and will be contacted and placed as rooms become available.
