What buildings will be available to continuing students?

The following buildings will be available for continuing students to sign up:

Where are the living-learning communities?

These are listed on the Living-Learning page.

If I don’t sign up for my same room by 4:00 p.m. on October 30 can I still get my same room at a later date?

No, you must choose your same room during the designated time.

If I don’t sign up for housing during my designated time slot, can I still sign up?

If you miss your time slot, please contact our office at for further instructions.

Can I request a roommate?

Yes, you must request your roommate(s) on the time slot form and when you complete the online agreement.

I’m a continuing student and want to request a new student as a roommate. Can I do this?

The online system is set up to only permit continuing students to room with continuing students and new students with new students. If you have a special request to room with a new student, please e-mail your request to with your specific information.

What about Spring housing?

If you are staying on campus for Fall, your housing assignment automatically carries over to the following Spring semester. There is no need to sign up for Spring since you are already signed up for the full academic year.

What if I don’t pay the $80 prepayment within 10 business days of signing up for housing?

The $80 prepayment is recommended to secure your room/suite. If it is not received within 10 business days of signing up for housing, then you may be reassigned to a less desirable room/suite. Non-payment of the $80 prepayment does not cause a cancellation of the housing agreement.

Can I sign up for my same room and then also try to get a different room type in the time slot assignment process?

Yes. Students can sign up for their same room and also sign up to get a time slot. If a different room is selected by the student during their time slot, the original room is forfeited.

My same room isn’t showing up as an option on my screen during the same room sign-up period. Why?

Some rooms are not available for same room sign-up. These include CA rooms, handicap accessible rooms, and a few others. If you can’t see your same room as an option during the same room sign-up period, please contact us at 724-357-2696 during that time period and we will work with you to make other similar housing arrangements in a room that is available.

I’m not sure if I want to live on campus or off campus. Can I cancel the on-campus agreement if I change my mind and decide to live off campus?

No. The Housing License Agreement cannot be cancelled to live off campus. Once you submit the agreement, it is a legally binding agreement with the university.
