On-campus housing is not guaranteed beyond freshman year, except for students who must live on campus, including students with housing scholarships that are required to be used on campus, and certain HRC staff and athletes. HRC considers individual students’ extenuating circumstances in determining who can live on campus.

For students who want to begin exploring their options for off-campus housing, there are excellent resources available through Off-Campus Resources in the Dean of Students’ office, and we encourage you to take advantage of them. Additionally, the off-campus housing website will be very helpful.

Housing for Returning Residents

The housing application for students who are guaranteed campus housing will open on January 11 at 9:00 a.m. CST. Students who are not guaranteed housing but wish to be on the returner waitlist can complete a form on January 16 at 9:00 a.m. CST to indicate their interest in housing. Information for the recontracting process for 2024-25 will be emailed to students during fall semester. Residents should look for communication via their Crimson emails starting in September regarding the recontracting process and important dates, deadlines and instructions.

On-Campus Housing Application – For those guaranteed housing

On January 11, 2024, the housing application will open in the myHousing portal at 9 a.m. CST. Only students who are guaranteed housing will be able to complete the housing application at that time. Students who complete the housing application by April 7 will be eligible for returner room selection.

Housing Interest Form – For those who are not guaranteed housing

Students who are not guaranteed campus housing can complete the housing interest form beginning January 16 at 9 a.m. CST, to indicate their desire to live on campus, if space is available.

  • Interest form: Completion of the interest form places a student on the returner waitlist for housing. The returner waitlist is not a housing application and does not guarantee that a student will be able to apply for campus housing.
  • Returner waitlist: Students will be removed from the returner waitlist and allowed to apply for housing on a rolling basis, if space allows. Waitlisted students cannot form or join a roommate group.
  • Timeline: Available space for Fall 2024 will determine how many returning students can apply for housing. If space allows, HRC will begin removing students from the waitlist in mid to late spring.
  • Priority: In removing students from the waitlist, HRC will prioritize rising sophomores (current freshmen who are living on campus for the first time this year, rather than sophomores by academic classification) for campus housing. Rising sophomores will be removed from the waitlist and allowed to apply for housing before rising juniors and seniors. Among rising sophomores, students will be prioritized based on the date they complete the interest form and join the waitlist. Completing the interest form does not guarantee that any student will be able to apply for housing. Available space will determine how many returning students can apply for housing. We encourage all students to begin researching off-campus options.

Returner Room Selection

Returner room selection takes place in the spring for students who meet the April 7 deadline to participate. Students eligible for room selection will receive their log in day/time by email in March. Students who do not participate in online room selection are assigned by HRC staff.

Students with complete housing applications will have access to My College Roomie to search for and confirm up to three roommates. Students must have a complete housing application to join a roommate group. The deadline for returning students to finalize their roommate groups is 8 a.m. on Monday, April 8.

Master Lease Space through UA

Housing and Residential Communities will have a master lease with East Edge again in 2024/2025. Interested students who have completed a housing application will be able to complete an East Edge interest form beginning February 19, and assignments to East Edge will be made before online room selection in April. Log in times to access the interest form will be based on when a student submitted their housing application. The earlier a student completes the application, the earlier they can submit the East Edge interest form. Students on the returner waitlist for housing will not have access to complete the East Edge interest form.

More information about the East Edge interest form process will be emailed to students with complete housing applications in January.
