We will send out housing preference instructions in mid-April to students who have submitted both a housing and confirming deposit. At this point, you will rank your residence hall preferences, select a living learning community, complete a roommate questionnaire and choose a meal plan.
- Housing preference forms due: May 31
- Housing assignments sent: July 23
Information about orientation will be sent to confirmed students in May. We offer a variety of weekday and weekend dates in July, as well as one session right before the start of fall semester: July 9, 11, 13, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23, 25, 26 and Aug. 30.

Both the confirming and the housing deposits are fully refundable until May 1 for students enrolling fall semester.* The admissions office must receive a written request for refund dated (or postmarked) by May 1. Refunds are processed within three weeks of the initial request in the form of original payment.
*If you are enrolling spring semester, please contact your admissions counselor regarding deposit refund dates.
