Living on campus is an essential component of your college experience through enhanced learning performances and countless opportunities to meet new people and develop lasting friendships.

Don't wait, complete your housing application today and get connected to your fellow Marauders.

If you have not already done so, submit your $195 Housing Fee ($60 Room Reservation Fee and $135 Room Key) which is required to complete your application and room selection process.

You will not have access to the housing application if you have not confirmed your admission by paying your $105.

ALL New Student Confirmation Fees are non-refundable. You will not have access to see the housing application until 24 hours after you have paid your Orientation and Matriculation Fee.


The housing application can be completed on Self Service. Students that would like to request each other as roommates will need to both list each other on their housing applications.
