June 1, 2020
Residence Availability Update
The COVID-19 pandemic has engendered a situation that none of us has experienced, leaving us trying to navigate uncharted waters. Throughout this situation, our mandate has been to maintain the health and safety of our community. Thus, in order to fulfill this mandate the University is only offering single rooms on campus this fall. As such our residence capacity has been reduced and the university is no longer able to guarantee on campus housing for any applications received after June 1st, 2020. Residence Services will assign students, who apply after June 1st, 2020 to residence on a first come first served basis. Only after receiving both your application and deposit will we consider your application complete. The date of your complete application is the date that will be used to determine residence priority.
We thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times as we try to determine how to best accommodate students while ensuring the health and safety of our community.
