Transfer Student Housing Options

Transfer students are assigned to either residence hall or apartment spaces based on the student's preferences and availability. Spaces may be single or double occupancy. Bathrooms are usually shared by two to six students. All buildings are co-ed with single gender suites or apartments.

All spaces are fully furnished with an extra-long twin bed, dresser, desk and closet or wardrobe space for each student. Most rooms are carpeted. Non-carpeted rooms may be requested on a space available basis. Air- conditioning is standard in all apartments except Triad (first floor only). Residence halls are not air-conditioned. Internet as well as local phone and basic cable services are included.

Application Process & Eligibility

All transfer students will receive housing and meal plan information from the Admissions Office upon acceptance to the University. Early applications are encouraged. The priority deadline for transfer student housing applications is December 1st for spring semester and May 1st for fall semester. Continuing residents are eligible to participate in the spring housing lottery in mid spring semester.


Incoming transfer students are able to apply for University housing two (2) business days after the University has received the student's admissions confirmation and deposit. Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. A non-refundable $200 deposit, payable by credit card, will collected during the application process. The deposit will be applied to your first semester bill. Check the Apply for Housing link to learn more.

Availability of On-Campus Housing

The university requires freshmen and sophomores to live on-campus unless they apply and qualify for an exemption. Housing for juniors and seniors is assigned on a space available basis, and is not guaranteed.
