Students on the waitlist will be sent an email reminder prior to the waitlist closure. Students who submit a request for the same room type with the same roommates, will not lose their place in line. Please know that single rooms are limited, and priority goes to students with a documented disability and then to those based on ranking/seniority and first come first served.

    This form is for assigned students who have a vacancy or anticipate a vacancy in their assigned room/apartment during non-academic break periods (winter or summer) and want to reserve the available space for a preferred roommate.

    Preferred roommates will be assigned to vacancies as long as the specific vacancy is confirmed prior to move-in and the reservation request is submitted before the vacancy is filled by the Housing Coordinator.

        1. Reasonableness- Campus Accessibility Services (CAS): Individuals who wish to bring an ESA or service animal to campus must first obtain confirmation of a reasonable accommodation through Campus Accessibility Services. CAS will send confirmation to the Office of Residential Life once processed.

This online application is needed to confirm the health of the animal, acknowledgement of policies and adherence to same. An updated form is required annually.
