First year incoming students and rising sophomore who pay their deposit by the designated time will receive priority in the designated housing areas.

Availability

It is important to understand that the number of available beds will not meet the potential demand. Residence Life will not be able to guarantee housing for all students as we do not have the capacity. Those who select housing later in the process will have fewer options from which to choose.

We encourage juniors and above to visit our Howard University Off-Campus Housing Service website https://howard.offcampuspartners.com/

Missed Deadlines

If you miss the deadlines to participate in Room Selection, you can still apply online for any available housing and/or the waitlist beginning April 20, 2020. This policy applies to all classes.

 

If you have any further questions, please visit the Office of Residence Life located in the lower level of College Hall South or call 202-806-6131. The Office of Residence Life will hold four Room Selection informationals. Please contact your Building Manager for more details.
