Welcome Incoming Students 

We are excited to welcome incoming freshmen and transfer students and we look forward to meeting you at Orientation.

All of the information you will need to select your roommate(s) and housing assignment can be found here. In addition to updating this page, we will email you throughout the summer when it is time to complete various steps.

Students who have signed up for one of our Common Interest Communities do not need to worry about steps 3 and 4 below. We will pair you with other incoming students with the same interest and assign you to designated spaces that we have already reserved in these communities. 

Students who have signed up for The Arches program will complete steps 3 and 4 earlier than everyone else according to the dates below. 


Step 1- Housing Questionnaire

Please complete our online housing questionnaire.

Step 2- Housing Contract & Personal Profile

All students must sign our housing contract. This will be available online for incoming students on Tuesday June 16. After completing your housing contract you will be able to create a personal profile that other incoming students can see when searching for a roommate.
