We are happy to offer Housing Contracts for transfer students for spring 2021!  New transfer students will be able to access the Online Housing System on November 1, 2020. Students can access the Online Housing System within 24 – 48 hours of paying their admissions deposit.  After signing a housing contract, transfer students will be able to complete a Lifestyle Questionnaire, which will help our office make roommate assignments.

Frequently Asked Questions

 I only want to live on campus if I can live in a specific building. Should I sign a housing contract?

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.

 What buildings are available to transfer students?

The following halls will be available to transfer students:

  • Bluestone: Converse, Gifford, Logan and Wampler
  • Grace: Apartments on Grace
  • Skyline: Paul Jennings, Shenandoah (4th and 5th Floors)

Transfer students will be assigned an upperclass roommate. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate transfers students who want to live with a current first year resident.

 When will I find out my room and roommate?

Room assignment information will be sent out to students by December 18th via email. The information will include their building location and room number, roommate name, and move-in information.

 Do all buildings have air-conditioning?

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

 How much does it cost to live on campus?

A semester’s room rent for any room type in our residence halls is $2754*. The semester’s room rent for a space in the Apartments on Grace is $3254*. Because students who live on campus are required to have a meal plan, it is important to include that cost in to your budget.

*Amount is for 2020-2021

 I signed a contract but now I want to live off campus. How do I cancel my contract?

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.
