RSVP Selection Date & Time Summary for Fall 2018






It is critical that on your date of selection that you do NOT log into your "Housing Application" until your assigned time.

You will not be able to view any available housing assignments until your assigned time but logging in prior will interfere with the overall process.



You will have two (2) Residence Halls to choose from for your housing selection:

College Hall South & Howard Plaza Towers

(East & West)


College Hall South


  • Double Shared Bathrooms


Howard Plaza Towers - West




Howard Plaza Towers - East




It is best if you know exactly which room number and room type you are interested prior to your selection. You will be able to utilize the “Room Swap” feature, but it will be based on availability.
