In an effort to offer spaces in a timely manner to those on the waiting list, offer emails will be sent to your USU email address (usu.edu).  You will be given 24 hours to complete the online contract process once an email is received.

Beginning April 1, anyone wishing to sign up for housing will automatically be routed to the waiting list. 

  • Waitlist offers will begin on May 1
  • All waitlist correspondence will be sent to your USU email account. Be sure to check email often for updates.
  • Being added to the waiting list does not guarantee that the you will receive a housing offer.
  • Placement on the list will be determined by submission date and time. 
  • When you reach the top of the list and is sent an email offer, you have 24 hours to complete the online contract process and select a room. 
  • Offers are sent Monday and Wednesday of each week to your USU email account.
  • The waitlist is not for those who currently have an on-campus housing contract and are looking to do a building and/or room change.
  • If you do not complete contract process within 24 hours of email offer, you will be removed from the list.

Payment

Housing and meal plan (if required) charges are included on your University account along with tuition and fees.  Review our Housing Rates and Dates page for more information.


Current Residents

We recognize students want to live on campus multiple years and will do all we can to accomodate people. Please keep in mind there is a limited number of bed spaces available for sophomores and above students.

Current residents who are interested in living on campus for the 2023-2024 academic year will be required to complete the initial online contract process including payment of the $75 non-refundable contract fee March 27-29.  Residents who choose to retain their same space will randomly be assigned a selection time on April 3.  All others will receive a randomly generated selection date and time to choose their building and bed space.

If a bed space is not selected during the room selection process, your housing contract will be cancelled.
