Room Requests & Housing Lottery

  • Room renewal is for students currently living in university housing and are completing a contract to return to living on campus in the fall. During room renewal, students will select their roommate(s), meal plan, and either claim their same room or select a different room for the following academic year. To participate in any phase of the room renewal period, residents must have a complete 2020-2021 Housing & Dining contract plus $50 prepayment. Note: there is no lottery process this year!

    In order to apply for housing online, you will need your StarID username and password.

    No Lottery Application needed this year! We are trying out a new format where students come in on a date based on their earned credits and select a room. This can be a single, suite, apartment, etc. Students hoping to live in the John Neumaier apartments or Nelson Upperclass Singles must have earned 24 credits by June 1 (not while dual-enrolled during high school). Students selecting a John Neumaier apartment must have all four residents selected or plans to buy out the apartment as a triple or double-as-a-single.
