Housing Assignments

Room assignments will be available through MyHousing beginning January 1. Housing assignments are made after January 1 to prevent a financial hold on student accounts. Once housing assignments are made in our system, student accounts are automatically billed for the full room and board charge. Financial Aid then makes a disbursement up to 10 days prior to the start of class.
