Frequently Asked Questions
How can I select to live in Mesa Court Towers?
Freshmen students that apply for housing prior to the May 1st deadline will be sent their housing offers and asked their specific community, hall and room preferences during the Contract process in late May/early June. During the Contract process, students may indicate preferences, however preference requests are not guaranteed.
Are there any double occupancy rooms in the towers?
