Transfer Student Housing Options

Transfer students are assigned to either residence hall or apartment spaces based on availability. Spaces may be single or double occupancy. Bathrooms are usually shared by two to eight students. All buildings are co-ed and offer single gender suites/apartments, and the option of Gender Inclusive Housing as well.

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 (1st floor only). Residence halls are not air-conditioned. Internet as well as 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 room selection process 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. Check the Apply for Housing link to learn more.

Availability of On-Campus Housing

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


Transfer students may have the option to match with a roommate prior to selecting or being assigned a room. Incoming transfer students can match with other incoming transfer students. Keep in mind that roommate matches are NOT GUARANTEED by the University. In some cases, especially for transfer students, the University is unable to assign matched roommates together in the same rooms due to a lack of space availability.
