2014 – 2015 Housing Sign-Ups

Residential Life is excited to launch their 2014 – 2015 Academic Year Housing Sign-Up Process for returning students, beginning February 3, 2014. The process ends March 3, 2014.

In an effort to simplify the process they will have two important dates for students to remember. The first date is February 3, 2014 at 10 am.

The second important date to remember is March 3, 2014 at 4 pm. By this date, all completed online applications and $250 nonrefundable prepayments must be submitted. If students are pursuing Squatter’s Rights, a Special Interest Community, or Residential Life's brand new Second Year Experience program, they will need to complete the corresponding E-Form (the E-Form will be emailed to the student's address after completing their application). The Online Housing Application, the Nonrefundable Prepayment, and the E Form is due March 3, 2014 at 4pm.

Invite students to join Residential Life in front of the SLP on the Plaza Menor on the following dates to enjoy free food and speak with a housing representative to answer any questions they may have:

February 13, 2014 at noon
February 18, 2014 at noon

As always please feel free to contact Residential Life with any questions. You can email them at or by phone at 619.260.4777.
