Returning Student Residence Hall Room Selection Schedule      

Your Time to Sign Up

2015-2016 fall current residents living on campus may sign up to live on campus again next year through E-Services beginning fall 2015. As a returning student, you can hand-pick your room for next year during Room Selection.

View the Room Selection Schedule (Available fall 2015.)

Choose Your Room Online

Make your $250 prepayment, agree to the housing contract terms, and choose your space next year all online. You'll need:

  • Your TechID and PIN
  • A credit or debit card to make the prepayment

If you want to make your prepayment by cash, check, or money order, please come to the Residential Life office at 111 Carkoski Commons to make your payment PRIOR to choosing your room online.

Remember to carefully read the 2016-2017 Housing Contract before you agree to the terms. You are entering into a legal agreement in effect for the entire academic year. Once Residential Life has accepted your contract, the terms within both the contract and Residential Life Student Guide apply.

The $250 Prepayment

To secure your space for next year, you will need to make a $250 prepayment when you sign up. Residential Life will apply this payment to your 2016-2017 fall room and board charges. You may pay online with a credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover). You may also make your payment by check, cash, or money order in the Residential Life office at 111 Carkoski Commons prior to choosing your room.

Having Problems Signing Up?

Visit the Residential Life office at 111 Carkoski Commons weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and we'll be happy to help you!

Live With Your Friends

When you sign up online, you may hold the space in your room for another current student who has not yet signed up. You will need the other student's name and TechID to enter into your housing application. When the other student logs in to E-Services to apply, they will see that they have an "invitation" from you. If you do not request a specific roommate, the other space in the room you have chosen will be available to other students signing up online. A requested roommate space can be held through May 20. After May 20, the hold will be released and another student will be assigned to the room.

If you are interested in signing up for a semi-suite or apartment with two or more other students, your group should try to all sign up at the same time. Please contact the Department of Residential Life to place holds on the spaces if not all students will apply for the room at the same time and you wish to place holds on the spaces.

Changing Rooms

If you want to change your room after your initial sign-up, stop by the Residential Life office at 111 Carkoski Commons. Room changes must be completed in the Residential Life office in person. Do NOT cancel your room and attempt to sign up again.

Resident Meal Plan Options

Residents may choose from several dining options each year. Each meal plan has two components: meals and Flex Dollars. All students living on campus must choose a meal plan. Meal plans for next year have not yet been finalized. You will have the opportunity to choose a meal plan beginning in February.

Living Off Campus

Is it more expensive to live on campus or off campus?

Like so many things, it depends on what you choose. There is a range of prices in on-campus housing, and there is a range of prices in off-campus housing. To assist you in comparing amenities and prices, you can use this consumer guide to help you directly compare costs.
