Waitlist Information

Undergraduate Housing Waitlist

We are currently on a waitlist for Upperclassmen Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 housing. 

How To Apply


Fall 2017

  • January 20th: Fall waitlist application available to upperclassmen on Housing Online. 
  • January 30th: first round of waitlist number emails sent. If you added yourself to the waitlist AFTER January 30th, you will receive your waitlist number email the following Friday.
  • April: Waitlist response form available on housing online to let us know if you are still interested in housing. If you do not respond to this form you will be removed from the waitlist.
  • May/June: Based on availability from cancellations,  we will start offering students off the waitlist. 
  • As of July 13th we do not anticipate being able to offer housing for waitlist students.  Therefore, we will no longer maintain a waitlist for Fall 2017; the waitlist has officially been disbanded. If you were previously on the waitlist or are still looking for housing, please follow the directions below for working with Off Campus Student Services. 

Please note: If you are on the waitlist, you cannot pay a deposit and you will not be able to be pulled in during selection.

  • As of May 5th: We are currently on a waitlist for any Upperclassmen who did not pay the deposit by the deadline or has yet to apply for housing. 
  • If you would like to add yourself to the waitlist please fill out the Spring 2018 application on your housing online.
  • September: If you filled out a Spring waitlist application or have an active Spring application with no deposit, please fill out the waitlist response form on your Housing Online under the Spring Status button. Your response is due by October 3, 2017.  Failure to submit this form will result in your name being removed from the Spring 2018 waitlist.
  • Mid October: Waitlist numbers will be sent to students who have submitted the waitlist response form or have recently added themselves to the waitlist.

Please note: If you are on the waitlist, you cannot pay a deposit and you will not be able to be pulled in during selection. 

Incoming Transfer students

We have reached capacity for Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 transfer student housing and the waitlist has been disbanded for Fall. There is no waitlist for Spring 2018 housing.
