Instructions for Current Students:

Step 1: Submit Your Pre-Payment by April 9th

Make your $300 pre-payment on the student portal by clicking here!  

To select your room your pre-payment must be submitted by April 9th. 

 

Step 2: Complete Your Housing Application  (March 26th – April 9)

The Housing Application will be live from March 26th through April 9th 

 Click Here to Complete Your Housing Application!   

  • Students using eRezLife for the first time will need to activate their account.  
  • The Housing Application can be found right on your home tab, under “Your Housing Applications” 

Please Note: Your housing lottery number does not depend on how quickly you complete the application, so please take your time!   

Housing selection times will be sent to you via your MSM e-mail on April 12th. 

In addition to the pre-payment, the Housing Application is required to be able to select your room on April 13th – 14th  

  

Step 3: Select Your Room! (April 13 – April 14)

Once you have completed Step 1 and Step 2, you will be assigned a lottery number and a housing selection time slot.  

Each time slot has about 20-30 people in it, so when it is your time, sign on and follow the prompts to select housing.

Please Note: ALL TIME SLOTS ARE IN EST TIME 

 

Scoping Out Available Rooms:

Floor plans will be posted under the “Resources” tab on your eRezLife homepage.

You can also browse through rooms on eRezLife and see what is available. If you love a room, add it to your favorites so that you can easily find your favorite rooms when you sign in to select your room!

Rising sophomore students will only be able to select from floors 9, 11, 15, & 16 and upperclass and grad students will only be able to select from floors 5, 12, 13, & 14.

Please Note: Floor dimensions are not available for any room.

 

Roommate Groups:

If you plan on living in a double room, go ahead and make your roommate group!

Roommate Groups allows either roommate, usually the roommate with the earlier time slot, to secure the room for both of you. To create a roommate group click the “Roommate Group” button on the left hand side bar under “Housing.”

If you are hoping for a single, but want a roommate group to fall back on, you should go ahead and choose your roommate group now. You can leave your roommate group and select a single if one is available.(Let your potential roommate(s) know this is your plan in advance so you don’t leave them without a backup plan!)

Roommate groups can be formed and re-grouped throughout housing selection, so if you want to start a roommate group or re-group while you are selecting rooms, you can do that at any time.
