Returning Student Housing Selection

Returning student housing selection will be starting on Monday, April 12th. In order to take part in housing selection, students must pay a $150 registration deposit to the business office for the Fall 2021 semester, and register for classes for Fall 2021. Following Fall 2021 class registration, students will be able to access the Residence portal and will be assigned a date and time for selection, according to credits and cumulative GPA. Housing selection requires students to fill a room or apartment, according to the occupancy of a given space. For example, if the student wants to live in a 4 person apartment they must have a total of 4 people in their roommate group to select that room. Additionally, any housing accommodations must first be approved through Kristin English, Assistant Director of Disability Services, If there are any more questions please contact the Office of Community Living at 740.376.4784 or
