Housing Selection

New Student Housing Assignment Process

New students will complete their housing application in their RESIDENCE portal as part of the deposited student checklist provided to them by Admissions. For incoming first-year students, this application includes building and roommate preference information.

Upperclass/transfer students can email ocl@fzcatv.net if they have specific requests, as their assignments will occur around current returning student housing assignments. 

Both new first-year and transfer students can match with potential roommates using the roommate matching tool built into the RESIDENCE website

In mid-July, email notifications of housing assignments will be sent to all new students (first-year and transfer). Once assignments are finalized, all students can view those in their RESIDENCE portal.

Returning Student Housing Selection

Returning students who are registered for Fall 2022 are eligible to participate in a self-selection process for housing. The timeline for the process is as follows:

  • Friday, March 28th: Pre-registration for Fall 2022 housing begins
  • Friday, April 8th: applications go live in the RESIDENCE portal ONLY for returning students who successfully pre-registered for Fall 2022
    • Students then complete/submit their online application
    • Office of Community Living staff approve applications (typically 1 business day later)
    • Once applications are approved, students can immediately begin forming roommate groups
  • Monday, April 18th: housing selection begins (according to assigned time; dates/times are assigned according to the number of completed credit hours (and cumulative GPA only if a tie-breaker in credits is needed)

Housing selection requires students to fill a room or apartment according to the occupancy of a given space. For example, if the student wants to live in a 4-person apartment, they must have a total of 4 people in their roommate group to select that room. 

Students with approved housing accommodations that require a specific type of housing will be pre-assigned to a space that meets their accommodation needs and will not participate in the self-selection process. All housing accommodations must be approved through the 504 Coordinator (accessibility@fzcatv.net).

Students living in specialty housing (Greek houses, Scholars Community, Gender Inclusive Housing) will have a separate assignment process and will not participate in the returning student housing selection process. 

Please see below for a link to a Powerpoint/PDF guide that more thoroughly outlines the returning student housing selection process.  If you have any questions after reviewing the Powerpoint/PDF guide, please contact the Office of Community Living at 740.376.4784 or ocl@fzcatv.net.
