When will I receive housing accommodations assignment?
In July, you will receive confirmation of the type of accommodation you will reside in, but the actual dorm or apartment number will not be given until you check in.
How are roommates assigned?
Preferences for specific roommates are honored whenever possible; each student must request the other on the student housing agreement form. Assignments are made on a first come, first served basis. No room assignments are made on the basis of race, religion, color or creed.
Is there a cleaning deposit?
Yes. Your deposit must be submitted when you turn in your student housing agreement. Griswold Hall has a $250 deposit.

Can I remain in student housing between semesters? Is there a charge for this?
Yes! You may remain in single housing facilities between fall and spring semesters for an additional $100. Additionally, students may arrange to stay in any of the available facilities during summer sessions. Tenants must sign a letter of intent to register for the subsequent fall semester if staying thru the summer.
When is student housing available?
Singles facilities are available for occupancy one week before the start of classes each semester. Students will be notified of their move-in date one month before the semester begins. Students who need special arrangements may contact the Housing Coordinator. Family Housing is available for occupancy as the units become vacant.
