Room selection, an annual process, allows current/returning students to select their rooms and choose their roommates for the following academic year. Returning/current students who plan to live on campus for the following academic year must participate in the room-selection process and submit a Returning Student Housing Application, as only students who submit an application are eligible for housing.

Undergraduate Rate Structure for 2021–22

The College initiated a full review of the housing rate structure which varied based on residence hall. Our Campus Life team, in collaboration with numerous offices across the College, were charged with providing a more equitable experience for students when engaging in room selection. The result is a simpler, six-rate housing rate structure based on room type. These new rates are better aligned with average annual housing costs and create a much clearer understanding of these costs for students and their families.
