Most, but not all, new students will select their own room through a Web-based room selection program. However, each year there are a number of students who are manually assigned by University Housing Services. Your selection method is determined by how soon we receive your application-contract. By mid-May, University Housing Services will notify each student regarding their assignment method.
For students selecting their own room, the online room selection process will run May 27 through June 27. Manual room assignments are made in July after the conclusion of the online room selection process on June 27.
If you believe you have reason to live off campus but are required to live on campus, please learn more about the exemption process here.
The University may grant exceptions to student who are not required but would like to live on campus. Because University Housing Services must reserve space for students who are required to live on campus, we have a limited amount of exceptions available. You may learn more about the exception process on the Campus Housing Exceptions page.

The Single Occupancy Waiting List form is available for students to request a single living space for Spring 2014.

In a collaborative effort to reduce the environmental impact of housing students, ARH and University Housing have installed water-bottle filling stations on campus. The new bottle filling stations can be found in the lobby of West Campus and on each of the five house breezeways in Watterson. Dispensing filtered water at 1.1 gallons per minute, the fill stations provide a quick, no-touch sanitary solution to filling water bottles. To use, simply place your reusable bottle on the fill stand. The IR sensor in the station will see that there is a bottle present and will begin the filling process. The filling stations will help encourage a healthier lifestyle and reduce the number of disposable plastic water bottles used on campus. Each fill station displays the number of plastic water bottles that have been saved from the landfill. Read more here.
The University requires students to live in university housing their first two years out of high school. Students who fall under the University On-Campus Housing Policy will not be able to register for classes until University Housing Services receives their residence hall contract and initial payment. These regulations are applicable to all students insofar as space is available in University residence halls.
Spaces are still available for spring 2014 at Shelbourne apartments. These spaces are for students who are married or in domestic partnerships, students with dependents, graduate students, and qualifying upper class students. Submit an application today.
Applications for fall 2014 are available here.
Mounted door knobs, mailbox doors, and room numbers from Atkin/Colby and Hamilton/Whitten residence halls are available for purchase and benefit the University Housing Services Student Employee Scholarship fund. Learn more.
