The Office of Residence Life cannot accommodate requests due to medical concerns unless you are registered with the Office of Students with Disabilities.

  • Fill the form out in its entirety.

Step 3: Living-Learning Communities (Optional) 

  • This is an optional step. If you have looked over the Living-Learning Community information, and feel that one of those communities looks right for you, please continue with this step.
  • If you or your roommate request is applying for an LLC, you must be aware that BOTH roommates must apply and be accepted to the same LLC or the LLC request will not be honored!
  • Click on the button labeled LLC Application
  • Fill out the application in its entirety

Step 4: Roommate/Suitemate Request (Optional) 

  • Students wishing to live with current students must click here
  • Roommate requests are limited to one other student and must be mutual

  • Click on the button labeled Roommate/Suitemate Request
  • Enter LastName and FirstName of your intended roomate request.
    • If the name of the student that you want to room with is not available, it is because they have not paid their deposit and signed their agreement.
