Who will be my roommate?

All residence rooms will be single occupancy for Fall 2020 in order to comply with health and safety requirements due to COVID-19.


When you submit your online housing application you will be placed in a residence room. Room assignments are made available online in early August via your student portal, however, due to last minute room shifting we cannot promise specific rooms to students prior to registration. Your keys will be available when you arrive on registration day.

When can I move in?

If you do happen to arrive on move in day but outside of office hours please stop by the security office located at the entrance to the University and they will escort you to your room. If you arrive earlier than the scheduled check-in day, you should find housing arrangements off campus until check-in day.
