As a current freshman, you have the option of choosing your living accommodations for your upcoming sophomore year. As a reminder, all freshmen and sophomores are required to live in university housing unless they are living at home with a parent or legal guardian. Students who wish to apply for commuter exemption can log on to their Student Housing Portal beginning Friday, February 24th to submit a request. Please note: students subject to the residency requirement who do not choose a space during the room selection process will be assigned to a residence hall space during the summer and billed for room and board.
There are three processes available for rising sophomores:

There is very limited university housing available for upper-class students, so it’s critical for you to consider and research your off-campus housing options for next year.
Current Upper-Class Students
Due to space limitations, we are only able to provide a few spots each year for upper-class students. If space becomes available, an email will be sent to upper-class students with the process of how to apply for housing.
