Residence Hall No Show Day

Log into your AY 2021-2022 Housing Application to access the No Show preference page

Demand for University residence halls is high.  Typically we “sell out” of rooms during the summer, but contract cancellations will continue to make some spaces available. If you have not been able to select a room type as we reach capacity, you will need to complete the No Show Day process to remain on the waitlist. But being on a waitlist doesn't mean you still won't be offered housing.

Throughout the summer, some students who have housing contracts decide to cancel their contracts. We offer these rooms as soon as they’re available to the next person on the waitlist. In addition, some students with contracts will not tell us to cancel their contract, and we find out when they don’t move in.  Students have until 5 p.m. on the night before classes to check-in to the hall; otherwise they are considered a “No-Show”.

Students who have requested a residence hall space but have not received a contract prior to the start of fall classes are encouraged to participate in No-Show Day.  No-Show Day occurs on the first day of classes as a result of students who cancel their contracts at the last minute or fail to move in as required. University Housing then makes these beds available to applicants on the No-Show Day waitlist.

To apply for an available bed space, residence hall applicants without a contract must fill out the No-Show Day preference page in their AY 2021-2022 application. We will accept No Show Housing Requests in the Residence Hall Application beginning August 24th.

If you are assigned a space on No-Show Day, you will be notified by email after 1 p.m. on the first day of class. If you do not accept and sign the contract and pay the deposit by 8 a.m. the following business day, your offer will be cancelled and the space will be offered to another student on the waitlist.

Additional details about the No-Show Day Contract:

  • If you are assigned a space, an email will be sent to your UTA email address with instructions on how to accept the contract and make your first payment(s).

  • You MUST pay the $150 deposit online when you accept and sign your contract as well as your first housing installment (see chart below).

  • If you do not accept and sign the contract and pay the deposit by 8 a.m. the following business day, your offer will be cancelled and the space will be offered to another student on the waitlist.

  • The first housing installment must be paid before move in.

  • If assigned a meal plan is required and the first installment of your meal plan is due before you can move in to the Halls.

  • Any first-time students who plan to live on campus must comply with the meningitis vaccination requirements at least 10 days prior to move in.  For more information on the meningitis vaccination requirements, go to here. If your move in is delayed for failure to comply with this requirement, please note that you are still responsible for the financial obligations of the contract.

  • You must be enrolled full-time to be offered a contract.

  • Priority for assignment of applicants on the No-Show Day Waitlist will be based on initial date of residence hall application if the No-Show Day preference page is completed prior to 11 a.m. on August 25, 2021; otherwise priority is based on the date and time the No-Show Day form is submitted.

  • If you are not assigned a room on No-Show Day, you will remain on the No-Show Day waitlist for space which may become available at a later date.

  • The No-Show Day Waitlist will be discarded after everyone has been offered a space or is no longer interested.  After this waitlist is depleted, all assignments will be made first-come, first-serve.

  • Our priority is to find you an accommodation on campus that meets your needs based on space availability, but we cannot guarantee to meet your preferences.  We only make one offer to students on the no-show waitlist before we move to the next person.

  • Occasionally, students move out and vacancies become available throughout the semester, so check back often if you have temporary accommodations and still desire a bed in University Housing.

  • Mid-semester move-ins, and room or building changes are permitted as space is available.
