First-Year Housing Updates and Information for Fall 2020

Updated July 1, 2020.

Please watch this page for updates through the summer.

As we continue to work toward a return to campus, we are all called on to remain flexible as timetables and policies are determined and updated. Thank you for your understanding and patience. 

To be considered for housing, first year students and transfers will need to apply by July 1. Considerations for housing placements will include: distance from campus; academic majors that need physical campus resources; and individual student circumstances. We still encourage you to apply for housing, and Residential Life will reach out in mid-July about the status of your request for housing.The current plan is for first-year students to be housed in double rooms (two people per room). This plan may shift pending wider university decisions to be announced by early July. Our top priority is to keep our campus community safe, and to provide housing to students that supports their academic goals.
