How it works 


  1. Housing Application Completed 
    • Only students who completed their housing application by March 31st are eligible to participate in room selection. All other students will be placed on the waitlist.
  2. Create Your Group
    • Create your roommate group in the application in advance of your selection day. 
    • Students will be able to request any returning student(s) to join their roommate group.
  3. Mark Your Calendar
    • Time slots will be designated based on academic class and application complete date. Please note that all the time slots are in Eastern Standard Time (EST). 
  4. Time Slots
    • Once your time slot opens, you will be able to select an apartment and assign yourself and any roommates to an apartment that are already within your group.
    • Students can sign up at any time after their time slot has begun.  
    • Your time slot will be sent to you via email on April 3rd, 2023, and can be found in your Housing Portal.  
  5. Review Desired Apartments
    • Upperclass students can choose an apartment in The Gateway, Meyerhoff House, or a designated floor in Leake Hall. Only available rooms that have not yet been chosen will show at the time of your time slot. 
    • Students can log in to the portal up to 3 hours in advance of their designated time slot to review what is still available. Student groups should have a minimum of 10 options in mind in case the apartment you desire is no longer available.
    • The maximum number of people allowed to share an apartment is 4, with the exception of two 5 person spaces in Meyerhoff. The apartment must be filled in order to choose it. 
  6. Choose your Apartment
    • On the date and time assigned to you, log in to the housing sign up portal and sign up your group for an apartment.  
    • Only 1 person will need to be logged in to place your apartment-mate into their assignment.
    • Each group member will need to be assigned to individual bedrooms. Identify in advance which person will be assigned to each bedroom for any given apartment. 

Waitlist Information

Students that missed the housing application deadline of March 31st or have yet to select a room by April 13th will be placed on a waitlist.

The waitlist will be in order based on the date you completed your application. Students that missed the application deadline are not eligible to join apartment mate groups for the sign up process.

Depending on availability, the housing application may reopen on April 17th and room selection for the waitlist will be held thereafter.
