First Year In College Priority For Housing

First time in college? 

Students who are entering their first year in college, sometimes referred to as FTIC Students (First-Time In College), receive priority for University Housing in completing a Residence Hall application! Last year, 90% of rooms were filled by May 1, 2023. The sooner you apply, the better your chances of getting your first pick. To take advantage of your first-year priority, students will need to have completed their Residence Hall application by April 1, 2024!

How does priority status work? 

  1. Priority 1 (EXTENDED DEADLINE) - First-time in College (FTIC) Students: First-time in College (FTIC) Students: FTIC students will receive a priority assignment offer and may select a specific residence hall and room type if a completed housing application is received before May 1, 2024, based on the date of application and housing availability. FTIC students who apply before May 1, 2024 must also complete a housing contract by May 14, 2024. FTIC students who fail to apply before this priority housing deadline, may continue to be assigned after May 14, 2024, based on the date of application, but available spaces will be limited, and the offer of assignment is not guaranteed.

  2. All other residence hall applicants may begin to apply on October 2, 2023.  These students will be able to select a specific residence hall and room type from the remaining spaces after Priority 1 applicants, based on the date of application and housing availability
