Apply to live on Campus

Transfer students are not required to live on campus, but you can apply to live in a residence hall. 
We guarantee an on-campus housing assignment for the first 30 transfer students who pay their housing deposit along with their tuition deposit.  Residence Life will contact these 30 students with the next steps in the housing and roommate matching process.  Please note that single/double room-type requests are considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
