PLEASE NOTE: This information is provided to increase the transparency of the process, not to solicit interest. You will be contacted with an offer when your application is reached on the waitlist, so please do not contact the offices regarding placement in a particular vacancy. 

How offers are made

During summer months, housing offers are made to students who do not currently reside on-campus. Offers to current residents seeking to change apartments or communities are made from October through April.

Offers are made according to waitlist category and application date. Students in Category 1 are served before those in Category 2 (see Category descriptions below). When a vacancy occurs, an offer will be extended to the applicant with the earliest application date, in the category that is being served, who included that floor plan as one of their selections.

Category 1 Ph.D., M.F.A., J.D., or Prime LC M.D. students who missed the application deadline; Medical students; Students with children living with them
Category 2 Masters students; Undergraduate students who are 25 years or older, married, or in a domestic partnership (no children)

The chart below shows application date ranges for family and single student applicants. To assess your place on the waitlist, find the date range when you applied for housing and consider the number of applicants in that column and all date ranges to the left. Movement on the waitlist is also influenced by the specific floor plans that become available and the gender and desired move-in dates of those ahead of you on the waitlist.
