How to Apply

How to apply for a First-Year Learning Community

To apply for a First-Year Learning Community, you must complete your Housing Contract no later than April 1. However, space is limited and applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so complete your Contract as soon as possible!

Once you receive notice of the Housing Contract’s availability, go to the online Contract and log in using the information provided.

University Housing Login

Read the next screen, and then click “Next.”

Beginning the Housing Contract

On the following screen, list your housing preferences and complete the other requested information. At the bottom of the page, you will be allowed to select a First-Year Learning Community. Please note: if you list suite-style housing as your first choice, and that preference can be accommodated, choosing a First-Year Learning Community will not override that preference. If membership in a First-Year Learning Community is your first choice, please mark that Community’s residence hall as your first preference at the top of this page.

Residence Hall preference

To apply for a specific Learning Community, choose that community from the drop-down box. Once you have completed all information on the page, click “Next.”

Selecting a Learning Community

On the following page, you will be allowed to request a roommate. You may be in a First-Year Learning Community, even if you request a roommate who is not in the Community. If we are unable to honor that request, we will contact you to see what you wish to do.
