Put "4" next to your fourth choice for housing type. Please note if you do not complete and submit this form, you will be randomly assigned to housing.

Housing Amenities: All housing options are fully furnished and include cable and WiFi access, in-building laundry, air conditioning, and kitchen access.

Dining Plans: Option A will be assigned a 175 Block Plan by default, but students must pay for their Meal Plan separately once they arrive at the University. Students may also increase their meal plans if they wish, but students living in Options A are not permitted to drop below a 175 Block Plan by University policy. Off campus (Options B, C, D) are not required to have a meal plan if they would prefer to cook on their own.
