Housing Sign-Ups Information for 2013-2014
Step 1: Housing Registration Pre-Payment (Required for Lottery)
Prior to reserving a room or participating in the annual housing sign up process, current students must pay a $100 housing registration pre-payment. This payment must be paid in full and cannot be charged to the student account. The pre-payment is non-refundable (except in the unlikely event that campus housing is unavailable) and will be applied to the fall semester housing charges upon occupancy. All housing pre-payments should be made online through the Residence Life webpage.
*Please note: Students who have not paid the housing registration pre-payment will not be allowed to participate in the housing lottery drawing, sign up for housing or be “tentatively” signed up by another individual during housing sign-ups.

Students are required to the ONLINE HOUSING AGREEMENT before choosing a room assignment.
The Housing Agreement is a binding document between the student and the University.
The Housing Agreement indicates that students will reside in campus housing and accept financial
responsibility for their room for the entire Fall semester of the academic year stated.
Students are encouraged to read the Housing Agreement terms and conditions carefully, paying special attention to
cancellation fees and deadlines.
All freshman and sophomore students are required to live on campus unless they are (1) living with immediate family, (2) are 21 years or older, (3) are married or (4) have lived in campus housing for four consecutive semesters (excluding summer school).
Students signing up without a roommate may be consolidated with another single student.
Residence Life staff reserves the right to fill all open spaces at their discretion.
If a student decides after sign-ups not to live on campus, BOTH spaces in the room may be forfeited.
Voluntary triples will be allowed; however, no financial compensation will be given.
If you are not available to sign up for housing at your designated time, you may have a friend sign up for you. However, you MUST have completed steps 1 & 2 a outlined above as well as submitted your Online Housing Agreement prior to being signed up for a room. Failure to complete the steps above will result in the loss of privilege tos ign up until all steps are appropriately completed.
