2018-19 Room Sign Up for Current Residence Hall Students

 

Step 1: Sign a 2018-19 Residence Hall Contract & Request a Roommate

Log into the Portal to sign the residence hall contract and request a roommate. All students must have a signed 2018-19 residence hall contract before they may select a room during the room sign up phases below. We encourage all students to sign the contract and choose a roommate prior to the room sign up phases - this will save you time and extra work on those dates.

Residence Hall and Meal Plan Portal >>

Step 2: ( Closed May 11, 2018 )

Choose a Room for the 2018-19 Academic Year

Room sign up is split into multiple phases. Please review the below information for dates and instructions to reserve a room. Identify when the room sign-up phase begins for your preferred hall(s). Then log into the Portal to reserve a room during that phase. All room sign-up phases are done through the Portal.
