First Year Priority Application Deadline  |  May 1
As long as you complete all steps of the application process by this deadline, your chances of being assigned to your preferred building/room type are the same as anyone else who applied within this timeframe. Students who already applied before May 1 will no longer be able to change their aplication preferences after May 1.
Transfer Priority Application Deadline  |  June 1
Transfer students may live in residence halls based on their class year. Please review which halls are for second year students and which are for juniors and seniors here. Transfer students are assigned on a rolling basis throughout the summer.
Assignment information will be available in NextStop this summer.
We'll email you when it's ready.
