Housing Demand Above Standard Occupancy

Campus Residences is a premier choice for many of our students. In recent years, we have built additional buildings to meet increased demand from our students. As a campus, we prioritize all newly admitted students who meet deposit and application deadlines for their first year of housing. For continuing students, we prioritize those with current housing agreements. Students who do not live with us must join the on-campus housing waitlist to see if they can be housed. For more information on how to apply to a waitlist, see our how-to guide

When new first-year and transfer student applications exceed demand, Housing Administration will implement one or two strategies to meet as many new students' needs as possible in mid-June.

Temporary Triple Rooms for New Students

Approximately 90 first-year rooms and 30 new transfer student rooms will be temporarily tripled to house three occupants. Certain rooms are designated as rooms that can be converted for temporary tripling. Residents will see this designation in the shopping cart section when selecting a room. If we implement this strategy, a third person will be assigned. We will inform all impacted students with additional information on room configuration, the de-tripling process, and best practices for living in a temporary triple. We anticipate when this happens, we will be able to de-triple all spaces within the fall semester, with a goal of no more than the first 6 weeks. Students in temporary triple receive an approximate 15% reduction in the cost of their room rate for the duration of the temporary triple

Radius Policy Procedures

If demand exceeds what a reasonable amount of temporary triple can accommodate, we may implement our radius policy for all residents. Residents with a home address within a certain distance from the university would not be eligible for campus housing, but will be refunded their housing deposit, and will be added to a priority waitlist. If and when space becomes available, residents excluded from receiving housing due to the radius policy would have priority to have on-campus housing during the same agreement period over individuals who are on our general on-campus housing waitlist. Additionally, continuing residents in corridor-style buildings may be reassigned prior to arrival to suite-style vacancies to create additional spaces in first-year housing.
