Room Assignments
Room assignments are made on a first-come first-served basis depending on when we receive your housing application. You are encouraged, and it is in your best interest, to submit your application for housing as soon as possible to increase your likelihood of getting your housing preferences. If your first housing preference is filled to capacity when your application is received, your other housing preferences will still be considered by housing staff when making a room assignment.

Room Preference Changes
Prior to the University making room assignments, you may email Housing to change your preferences of hall, roommate, or meal plan. Once room assignments are made, no further changes may be made until the Room Change process begins after the second week of classes.
