Housing Renewal Events

Open House: Sunday, February 2nd, 2020

Residence Life will also be hosting a Housing Open House on Sunday, February 2nd from 1-5 pm in the Armstrong Student Union Ballroom which will include housing tours from 1-2 pm. This is an opportunity for all students, especially first-year students, to get priority in picking their housing assignment for next year! Students who attend this event will be able to select their space right then and there! Plus it gives everyone in attendance a chance to meet potential roommates, see room spaces, and enjoy some wonderful food!

Theme Community Housing Selection: On-going

Students interested in living in one of our theme communities are invited to come to the University Housing Administrative Office (located on the second floor of Compass Point 7000) between the hours of 9am-5pm. Students can select a space as an individual or as a group. Please contact Katie Fester by emailing

Students will have 2 communities to choose from:

  • Greek Housing
  • Graduate Student Housing (students who will be enrolled in a graduate degree program Fall of 2020)

What do you do need to before you select your housing?

  • If you have not done so already, please complete the 2020-2021 Housing Application
  • Make plans! We suggest talking to your friends and come up with a few different options
  • Determine your eligible renewal period

Important Things to know

  • Windward Commons is NOT eligible for same-room renewal as it is a community intended for incoming first-year students. There will be a small population of rooms in Windward on the first floor that will be available during the Renewal Event and the last two weeks of renewals. Once those spaces are gone, you will be placed on a waiting list
  • Rooms designated for our themed housing communities or for special assignment related processes are not available to self-select into. If you do not see your room available during the renewal periods it means that it is not available for self-selection
  • You will not have to pay the non-refundable application fee
Special Accommodation Needs

The Student Disability Resource Center and Housing and University Housing work closely together to evaluate requests for housing accommodations for students with disabilities. Students requesting special accommodation or modification for housing must complete and submit the Housing Accommodation Form  in order to receive consideration. In addition, the student requesting accommodation must also have a current fully completed housing application on file before the university will evaluate a request for housing accommodation. A request for housing accommodation does not guarantee a housing assignment.

The student should complete Section I and the medical provider should complete Section II. This request must be completed in its entirety before a request will be considered. All requests for accommodation must be made by 60 days before arrival.

Documentation must substantiate a diagnosed impairment that is a current substantial limitation to a major life activity as it relates to housing needs. To ensure the provision of reasonable and appropriate on-campus accommodations for students, the university requires current and comprehensive documentation of the disorder from a current treatment/ assessment professional qualified to make the diagnosis. (Please note, a diagnosis in and of itself does not automatically qualify for requested accommodation.)

This request form must be submitted each year in order to review and renew, as appropriate, accommodations provided through The Student Disability Resource Center and Housing and University Housing.
