Room Requests & Housing Lottery

  • Room Recontracting is for students currently living in university housing and are completing a contract to return to living on campus in the fall. During recontracting, students will select their roommate(s), meal plan, and either claim their same room, participate in one of the lotteries or select a different room for the following academic year. To participate in any phase of the Room Recontracting period, residents must have a complete 2019-2020 Housing & Dining contract plus $50 prepayment.

     The Housing Lottery is the process by which our current university housing residents can select their housing accommodations for the next academic year. If you are interested in residing in one of the John Neumaier apartments, Holmquist Suites, Nelson Upperclass Super Singles or one of the residence single rooms, you will need to complete your 2019-2020 Housing & Dining contract, $50 prepayment and apply for the Housing Lottery.

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