Information for 2020–21 will be available in January. Please check back then.
The 2019–20 housing applications open on April 9, 2019.
Current residents who apply to live on campus by the April 15 deadline will have the first choice for rooms in all residence halls and apartments. No matter when you apply during the April 9–15 application period, your assignment priority will be based on how many quarters you’ve lived with us.
Don't be late! If you apply after the priority deadline, you will have the lowest assignment priority. You will then have to wait to apply until May 2, and we may not be able to assign you for autumn quarter.
If you are not already familiar with the room types and apartments we offer, you can explore all of our buildings online. Be sure to check out our virtual tours!
You can attend one of the returning resident information sessions in Alder Hall Auditorium or come to the Apartment Open House.

Fill out the application beginning
April 9 at 2 pm
Complete your application by noon on April 15 to get first priority
If you want to live with your current roommate or another current resident:
Request them by student number on your application
Make sure you both have exactly the same preferences on your applications.
If you want to live with an incoming freshman or transfer student:
Search for roommates using our Roommate Finder Message Board or the Queer-Positive Roommate Message Board
Your room selection appointment time will be sent to you by email on April 19. We encourage you to log in close to the beginning of your time for the best chance of getting the room you want.
Current residents have priority for their current room as long as they remain eligible to live in that area.
You will only be given search results for areas that you and your roomate are eligible for and that you both have set as preferences.
A pair or group is yourself and one or more other students who apply to return, or new applicants who have been pulled in by you or your mutually-requested roommate.
You may assign yourself and one or more other people as long as:
Roommate requests must be made using student numbers, not names. Be sure to have the student numbers of all students you want to be assigned with before you submit your application.
Applicants who apply with a group of two or more will be able to assign their entire group of mutually requested roommates. The first group member to select online may assign everyone to an available room, cluster or apartment; however, they will not be able to designate which room within a cluster or apartment is assigned to each person.
If, after being assigned by a group member, you wish to adjust your individual assignment within a cluster or apartment, you will have the opportunity to make that change by completing an online request. Details will be emailed to you after room selection ends.
For the best chance of assigning yourself to one of your preferred rooms, log in to the room selection website as soon as you can after your appointment time begins.
We cannot accommodate requests for earlier appointments based on schedule conflicts. If you do not select a room by April 28, HFS will assign you based on the preferences you express in your application. You will still have the option to change your assignment before your selection period ends.
Have a backup plan. If there isn’t space available in your preferred building, room or apartment type, what are your other choices?
If you decide to cancel your application and assignment, you’ll be charged a fee based on the date you submit your cancellation notice.
