Keep My Room Day
Room selection day for residents that would like to remain in their current room for the following academic year. Students will be able to select their room at any time during this process. In order to participate in Keep My Room Day, you must have enough occupants to fill the requested room by this selection day.
Example: If only one resident of a double room would like to keep the same room, you can pull another resident into the room and qualify for Keep My Room Day.
*Freshmen that reside in a Linden freshman room, may not keep their same room.
Priority Room Selection Day
Room selection day for residents that would like to select another room on-campus for the following academic year. Based on the number of completed credits (does not include credits in progress during the Spring semester), each applicant will be assigned a specific time to log-in and select their room/roommate. Students will have the ability to view rooms prior to their selection time, but will not be able to choose a room until their assigned selection time.
Special Living Options
Students who would like to live in Honors Housing must be current participants in either the Honors program or Global Scholars(Metro). A list will be provided to Housing and Residence life and only those students will be allowed to select these rooms during the Room Selection Process.
Housing Modification Requests
Students with disabilities that require a specific type of housing assignment to ensure equal access to the housing program may request a housing accommodation by submitting the proper paperwork to the Disability Support Services Office, who will then make a recommendation to the Housing and Residence Life. Students that have applied, and been approved, for a Housing Accommodation will only have access to ADA Compliant Rooms and/or Medical Singles.
General Room Selection
This room selection period is for commuter students and students who did not submit their Housing Application and/or deposits by the established Room Selection deadline.
Students that apply after General Room Selection ends will be assigned a room and roommate by the Housing and Residence Life.
Selecting a Room
Commuter students are only eligible to participate in Keep My Room Day or Priority Room Selection Day if they are selecting a room with a current resident.
