PRIORITY ROOM SELECTION PROCESS
If you complete the sign-up process by April 8, you will participate in our online priority room selection process taking place April 15-20, 2019. You will be responsible to choose your room, bed space, roommates and meal plan (if required) within the building that you select as part of the sign up process.
An email will be sent on April 8 with your access date and time for priority room selection, determined by the date you completed the sign up process for housing. If you do not make a selection during this week, you will be assigned by housing staff to an available space within your building. Not selecting a room does not release you from your academic year housing contract obligations.

After the priority room selection process, you will have the ability to change your own room and/or building booking online starting May 2 through July 15, based on real time availability. We do not keep waiting lists as you are able to change as many times as you wish until fall semester rent charges are posited to your USU account on July 15. After July 15, room changes can still be made based on availability by contactaing the Housing Office.
