New Student Housing Instructions

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING THE New Student Housing Application

Before logging in to myHousing to submit your New Student Housing Application, explore our varied housing options at Residential Communities.

Please Note: If you are majoring in science, math, or education with a science or math concentrate you may want to consider the free Math Success Camp program that runs the week before fall classes start. For more information, go to Math Success Camp 2018
Please consider ranking the following residence halls as your preferred halls: Funnelle, Seneca, Cayuga, Hart, or Johnson. Living with other math camp attendees will help you build community throughout the program and the fall semester. Please note Johnson and Hart have program requirements associated with them. For more information please contact Residence Life and Housing.
