How It Works 

  1. Housing Application Completed

  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 roommate group size and class year. Please note that all the time slots are in Eastern Standard Time (EST). 
  4. Time Slots
    • Your time slot will be available to view on the Housing Portal on Friday, April 12, 2024. 
    • Time slots will open at 10am on Monday, April 15, 2024
    • 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.  
  5. Review Desired Location
    • Juniors and Seniors can choose an apartment in The Gateway or Meyerhoff House.
    • Rising Sophomores can choose an apartment in Meyerhoff House or Leake Hall.
    • First Year students who are returning for their second semester in Fall 2024 will also be permitted to select a room in Leake Hall.
    • Only available rooms that have not yet been chosen will show at the time of your time slot. 
    • 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 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.
