Housing upon return
Students Participating in Semester Abroad or NSE must complete a housing contract and pay a fee for the semester they wish to secure on-campus housing -- either in advance of departure or while they are gone.
Contract forms are available from the Residential Living Office, 601 Division Street Building. Individuals who are studying abroad for the fall semester should submit a housing contract (and prepayment) not later than December 1 prior to the spring term they are seeking housing.
Individuals who are studying abroad for the spring semester should submit a housing contract (and $125 prepayment) not later than June 1 prior to the fall term they are seeking housing.
Residential Living will give you some additional priority in your assignment consideration (ahead of transfer and new freshmen). You may either have a friend who is currently living in the halls request you as a roommate (they receive detailed instructions in their hall sign-up packets) or you can enclose a letter with your housing application. In your letter, please indicate that you are participating on a study abroad or National Student Exchange program and provide details of your assignment preference(s). You may be as specific as providing a room number, but please allow for some leeway (you might say that you want to be on the 3rd floor of Baldwin Hall, quiet wing preferred, for instance). We will do our best to match your request.
Single rooms are available each semester on a space-available basis. This determination is made during week 3 of every semester.
