This page provides updates on apartment vacancies, housing offers, and the housing waitlist to assist you in weighing your housing options. Due to the potential volume of inquiries, housing staff are not available to respond to individual requests for waitlist information.

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)
