Housing Registration For New Students
Step 1. Pay your Enrollment Deposit
You may only sign up for housing after you have paid your enrollment deposit. Please contact your admissions counselor to complete this step. We give preference to students who deposit prior to May 1, so get your deposit in as soon as possible.
Step 2. Complete the AU Housing Application
Your My Housing page will allow you to access the Housing Application and other important housing and dining information. You will need your AU email username and password to be able to log in to the My Housing page. Once you log in, click on the applications tab at the top of the page and follow the link to the New Student Housing Agreement. Please keep the My Housing page bookmarked on your computer because you may need to access the page again to make changes to your application. You will also be able to view your housing assignment and roommate contact information here after assignments are completed. If you are unsure about your login information, please contact your admissions counselor.
If you already know who you would like to live with, indicate that at the end of the preferences section. Please keep in mind that we only honor mutual roommate requests so make sure your potential roommate also selects you. If you submit your deposit by May 1, we will guarantee your mutual roommate request.
Please indicate on your application the building in which you would prefer to live. You will notice that there are only certain buildings open for first year students. If you want more information about each building, you can find floor plans and pictures in the Residence Hall section of the Residence Life website. Although we cannot make any guarantees, we will do our best to place you in one of your top choices.
If you are planning to bring a car to campus, please complete the vehicle registration section. This will expedite the process of registering your car and purchasing a parking permit. If you don’t have all of your vehicle information available, you can always go back and update this section later.
Once we receive your online Housing Agreement, we will begin the process of determining your room assignment. Room and roommate selections are prioritized according to when you submitted your Enrollment Deposit with the University. If you paid your deposit by May 1, you should receive housing assignments and roommate contact information by July 1.
We look forward to having you join our on-campus housing community! If you have any questions, please feel free to visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or contact the Residence Life Office.
