Students Seeking Housing after the Waiting List Round
Students who entered the Waiting List round but were not assigned need to join the Continuous Assignments round in order to maintain their guarantee and/or position for housing. Please note that you must log into Axess after the Waiting List and join the Continuous Assignments round in order to be considered. You may also modify your housing choices at that time.
Students who would like housing but missed the Waiting List deadline as well as students who cancelled or withdrew a previous housing assignment should enter the Continuous Assignments round right away. These students are no longer guaranteed a housing assignment and will be assigned a sequential application number based on when they submit their housing application.
Students needing housing who wish to move in after the main summer move-in weekend may wait to apply until the Continuous Assignments round in order to have the ability to specify a later move-in date.
Enrolled students will continue to have priority over those who are not enrolled.
Continuous Assignments Process
Continuous Assignments take place after the Waiting List.
Unassigned students can join the Continuous Assignments round by filling out a housing application in Axess and listing all acceptable residence choices in order of preference, as well as a preferred move-in date. Students unassigned in the Waiting List round must go into Axess and join the Continuous Assignments round. Applications are not automatically carried over to Continuous Assignments.
Assignments are made daily as spaces become available through the 4th week of the quarter. Applications are reviewed in application number order. There is no need for students to come to Housing Assignments in person in order to be assigned.
If an assignment is made, students are notified through Axess which is updated by midnight on the date the assignment was made. The student will also receive an email notification if assigned.
Students may modify residence choices on their applications through Axess until 11:59 p.m. the night before assignments are made.
Once an assignment is made, students are subject to cancellation fees if they cancel their assignment prior to moving in. If a student moves in and then wishes to cancel an assignment, he/she must file a Termination of Occupancy form, and may be held to rent for the remainder of the quarter. For more information on cancelations, see Cancelling a Housing Assignment.
NOTE: After the first week of the quarter, students taking an assignment through the Continuous Assignments round must wait a for a period of two to five working days after being assigned before moving in. This allows time for the Housing Front Desks to notify current residents that they should expect a new roommate and or clean the room/apartment.
Your Chances for Assignment
Housing Assignments cannot predict which residences will have space available in advance of the Continuous Assignments process. Your chances for assignment during Continuous Assignments depend on:
The number of spaces that become available.
The number of students who apply for Continuous Assignments.
Which residences participants list on their applications.
