Housing and Dining
The University Housing & Campus Dining Mission statement
The Office of University Housing and Campus Dining is dedicated to excellence by fostering a healthy, supportive, and sustainable community living-learning experience through encouraging and educating our students and staff to: adapt to an evolving society; grow personally and academically; make decisions ethically and intentionally; and recognize their impact as inclusive and responsible global citizens.

If you are still unable to find what you need, see our Housing Basics webpage, or please feel free to contact University Housing & Campus Dining with your request.
CURRENT INFORMATION FOR THE FAMILY, PARENTS and FRIENDS OF RESIDENTIAL STUDENTS
Does your student want to choose their room and roommate for next year? We have a program for that – It is called Housing Renewal!
Housing Renewal happens in the Spring of every academic year. It is an entirely ONLINE process that allows our current residents to select the specific space they want for the coming year – as well as choosing just who they will be living with in their chosen space for the coming year. ALL of this BEFORE any new incoming students are placed for the next Academic Year.
HERE IS OUR TENTATIVE TIMELINE:
- FEB 19 – Students will be sent links and information about My College Roomie the electronic forum that students can use to find and match with roommate(s) for the coming year.
- Any student who applies to live on campus prior to 5 pm, July 24 will have access and the opportunity to select the space of their choice and request the
roommate of their choice. (Roommate requests must be mutual).
- The selection process was opened in mid May and will continue now 24-7 through 5:00 pm, July 31. Students can access the selection process on their
Housing Overview page.
HERE IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN:
