We are happy to offer Housing Contracts to transfer students for the 2022-2023 academic year! 

New transfer students will be able to access the Online Housing System starting on April 1, 2022. 

Students can access the Online Housing System within 24 – 48 hours of paying their admissions deposit.  The deadline to sign your contract is May 31, and you must select a roommate in the Online Housing System by June 15. Transfer students do not participate in online room selection, but you may send any building/area preferences via email to res-life@jmu.edu by June 15. These preferences are not guaranteed and are contingent upon availability. You will receive your room assignment via email by July 1.


Move-In Fall 2022

Transfer Students: Sunday, August 21 between 8 a.m. and noon

Students will select their specific move-in time during the first week of August.  More information about move in including how students will sign up for their move in time will be sent out during the last week of July.


 

Frequently Asked Questions

All of our buildings are great places to live, so we would encourage you to be open minded to wherever you are assigned. However, if you arrive on campus and are interested in a room change, you can submit an Online Room Change Request Form through the Online Housing System. There is a room freeze for the first three weeks of the semester, so room changes will be processed after the freeze ends.

The following halls will be available to transfer students:

  • Bluestone: Converse, Gifford, Logan and Wampler
  • Grace: Apartments on Grace
  • Skyline: Paul Jennings 4th and 5th Floor

Students who sign their Housing Contract for Spring 2022 by December 14 will be sent their room assignment information via email by December 17.  The information will include their building location, room number, and roommate name.

Yes, all buildings transfers would be housed in are air-conditioned!

A semester’s room rent for any room type in our residence halls is $2,782*. The semester’s room rent for a space in the Apartments on Grace is $3,282*. Because students who live on campus are required to have a meal plan, it is important to include that cost in your budget.

*Amount is for 2021-2022

The housing contract is binding for the entirety of the fall and spring semesters and will not be cancelled because a student has changed their mind about living on campus. The contract may only be cancelled within 5 business days after it is signed.
