While we are unsure of the exact number of vacancies that will arise, we will make offers in the order that your waiting list application form was received.
2 Enter your Housing Preferences: Shortly after submitting your deposits, you will be sent instructions on how to enter room & roommate preferences. Students can add/change preferences until May 15.
3 Review your Housing Assignment: In early July, all students who submitted both a housing & tuition deposit will be able to log into the housing website to view their room assignment. Assignments will be made based on preferences submitted and deposit date.
