Spring Only 2024 Student Housing Application

The Spring Semester 2024 student housing application opened on Monday, October 2, 2023 at 12 noon in the Housing Portal.  The Spring 2024 license agreement is for January 19 through May 19, 2024.  Housing assignments are made based on application submission date and space availability.  We anticipate spaces opening from graduating students and other single term residents.  A waiting list may be offered should spaces become completely filled for the Spring Semester.  

STEP 1 – Consider your options

STEP 2 – Submit your Housing Application on the Housing Portal

You will be asked to complete the following information as part of the Housing Application process:

If you cannot complete your Housing Application in one session, you may return to it and continue where you left off.
