Not a First-Come/First-Serve System
The process of assigning campus housing is a complex one. Our overall goal is to find an acceptable balance for first, second, third, and fourth-year students within appropriate facilities for the year of study.
Consequently, we do not process applications on a first-come/first-serve basis. If we did so, all of the second and third-year students would be applying for rooms one year in advance and all of the residences would be full by mid-September.
Note: If you do not receive a room offer by the beginning of August, you will receive an Option email notifying you that a residence offer appears unlikely and how you may proceed with your application.
