Applying for housing
Once you have been admitted and submit your enrollment reservation deposit, you can begin applying for housing (housing application opens in January). If you would like to have a specific roommate, both of you must request each other during the application process. Residence hall preferences or roommate requests cannot be guaranteed but will be honored whenever possible.
