Room selection for 2014-2015 is rapidly approaching! The first step for most students is to put in a nonrefundable $200 prepayment with the University Enrollment Center between February 18 and March 5. For more important dates, please see the calendar page.
Please note: students with a balance of $500 or more will not be allowed to participate in the room selection process - any prepayments made could be applied to the student's outstanding balance rather than Fall 2014 housing.
Housing prepayments can be made at the University Enrollment Center located in the Foster Administration Building. Please do not mail in your Housing prepayment check. The Enrollment Center does accept credit card payments via the telephone (508-999-9129). The credit card line hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Fridays. Students should secure the receipt received from University Enrollment Center, as it will serve as proof of payment. The prepayment does not guarantee a student an on-campus room, but does ensure inclusion in the Participation Lottery.
Students who are in the College Now, Commonwealth Scholar, Endeavor Scholar programs need to come to the Housing Office (located on the first floor of Oak Glen Hall) with their student ID between February 18 and March 5 in order to secure a deferral for the $200 prepayment. In addition, students who received a Pell Grant in 2013-2014 will ALSO be eligible for a deferral by following the same procedure.
Students interested in ADA Accommodations for the 2014-2015 academic year need to follow the ADA procedure listed here. The deadline for ALL paperwork related to ADA requests is Friday, February 14, 2014. This includes the student form AND a note from a health care provider.
Thematic housing applications will be available in the Housing Office beginning Thursday, March 6. Students wishing to take part in Upperclass Honors Housing (in Hickory Hall) need to be current active members of the Honors program, and put in their prepayment appropriately between February 18 and March 5, and fill out the Thematic Housing Application by March 15 . Students wishing to take part in Upperclass Quiet, Substance Aware, or Grad/Law housing need to put in their prepayment appropriately between February 18 and March 5, and fill out the Thematic Housing Application by March 14.
For the 2014-2015 academic year, Willow Hall will be switching from full-size beds to extra-long twin beds. This is part of the Housingwide plan to use only one size bed, which will enable us to purchase mattresses and fixtures in bulk. The only remaining halls with full-size beds will be Aspen Hall and Ivy Hall. Every other hall will have extra-long twin beds.
