Housing Selection for Commuter Students

For current commuter students who are interested in moving on campus for Fall 2024, our room selection process begins on Monday, January 22. There is no separate housing deposit. 

  • January 22 – February 4: All current residents MUST begin their 2024-2025 application in the housing portal. This includes submitting a housing intention, and (if returning to housing) forming room- and suitemate groups. 

  • February 5 – 11: Same Hall/Same Room Selection (for current residents in Anniversary, Petrik, Terzo and Quarto) 

  • February 19 – 25: Open Room Selection (rising seniors) 

  • March 11 – 17: Open Room Selection (rising juniors) 

  • March 18 –24: Open Room Selection (rising sophomores)

Commuter students will be assigned time slots according to their classification by credit hours; and will participate in open room selection during the same time periods as current residents. Students who do not begin their housing application by February 5 may experience delays in the room selection process, including a delayed/late time slot. 

Additionally, students who do not complete room selection by the end of their designated selection period will have their time slots rescheduled for the week of March 25.

Roommate Selection

Commuter students have two options for roommate selection for Fall 2024: 

  • Form or join a roommate group with one or more residents who already live on campus 

  • Form or join a roommate group with other commuter students

Room assignments will be selected for your roommate group by the designated group leader; so we recommend making your group leader the person with the earliest time slot.

Moving Off Campus

Current residents who are interested in moving off campus and becoming commuter students should read our Residential Living Policy to determine if they are eligible and to obtain the appropriate application forms. 
The preferred deadline to submit a housing exception application for Fall 2024 is January 28.
