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.

Recontracting

On January 11, 2023, the housing application and a housing interest form will open in the myHousing portal at 9 a.m. CST.

  • Students who are guaranteed housing will be able to complete the housing application beginning January 11 at 9 a.m. A complete housing application (including contract and $175 housing deposit) is required to receive a housing assignment later in the spring. Students who complete the housing application will receive a housing assignment, unless they later request a contract cancellation.
  • Other students may complete the housing interest form beginning January 11, to indicate their desire to live on campus if space is available. If space allows, students who have completed the interest form will be notified that they can complete the housing application. This could happen on a rolling basis in the late spring. Completion of the interest form does not guarantee housing or obligate a student to live on campus. Based on available space, we may not be able to accommodate every student who submits an interest form.

Students with complete housing applications will have access to My College Roomie to search for and confirm roommates in the spring.

Students who complete the housing application by March 28, 2023, will be eligible for online room selection in April. Students who complete the application after March 28 will be assigned by HRC staff.

If we are able to allow students who complete the interest form to apply for housing, 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, and they will be allowed to apply for housing before rising juniors and seniors, as long as they have completed the interest form when the application is available to them. Rising juniors and seniors (determined by years on campus rather than academic classification) will be prioritized based on the date they complete the interest form. This does not pertain to students with housing scholarships who can complete the application beginning in January.

At this time, the master leases with Union on Frank and East Edge continue through July 31, 2023. We will provide any updated information regarding off-campus master leases when/if we have it.

Returner Room Selection

Returner room selection takes place in the spring for students who meet the March 28 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.
