Information and instructions about this process can be found below. We hope that this process is an easy one for you! If you have any questions, feel free to ask in our direct message box at the bottom.

All students in good standing (academically, behaviorally, and financially) will have the opportunity to participate in the contract renewal process.

If you forget or fail to complete the on-line application form we will presume that you will not be residing on campus and your space will be reallocated. Residents who fail to reserve a space during the prescribed dates will lose their opportunity to be assigned before new applicants.
