Housing Sign-Up

All current students are invited to participate in the 2021-22 housing sign-up and room selection process. Complete the Housing and Dining Agreement by March 25 and select your own space and roommates online as part of the room selection process.

The 2021-22 Housing Agreement and Application will be available on February 25 on My Housing

Step 1: Complete Your Housing and Dining Agreement by March 25

Log in to My Housing and select the button labeled "Current Student 2021–22 Housing Application." This will take you directly into the online housing application and agreement form.

While completing the application and agreement, you will be prompted to create a PIN number. You must give this PIN to your roommate(s). More information about PINs is available in the "Terms to Know" section.

What type of room selection are you making?

If you are eligible to participate in Same Type of Space room selection, you may reserve the same type of space on April 7 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Same Type of Space, April 7

Eligible Spaces:

  • Alberta
  • Georgia
  • Morrison
  • Rauenhorst

If you live in one of these building you may choose to remain in the same type of space for next year. If you select your same type of space and cannot fill it after Roommate Pull-In, the other rooms in your suite or apartment will be available for other students to reserve.

At the end of the room selection process it may be necessary for us to consolidate people if their suite/apartment is not filled to capacity. When you sign up for Same Type of Space, you’re choosing to live in the same type of space. For example, if you currently live in a single suite bedroom in Rauenhorst, you will be guaranteed a single suite bedroom in Rauenhorst or Morrison. We also guarantee you’ll keep the roommate(s) you signed up with during Same Type of Space and Roommate Pull-In.

Roommate Pull-In, April 8

Students who signed up for a space during Same Type of Space can pull-in roommates to fill the space during these dates. To complete this process, you will need all roommate PIN numbers, email addresses, and meal plan choices. Roommate Pull-In ends at 11 p.m. on April 8.

Fill a Suite or Apartment, April 14 (9 a.m.–3 p.m.)

On April 14, you and your selected roommate(s) can go online and look for a suite or apartment that isn’t fully occupied. Not all openings will show up on this day, just the suites and apartments that are partially occupied after the Same Type of Space process.

If you and your roommate(s) aren’t able to find a space this day, you can return for General Room Selection when fully open suites and apartments will be available. You do NOT need to have a roommate to participate in Fill a Suite or Apartment sign up. However, you need to be able to fill the space.

Examples

  • You and one roommate want to live in a Rauenhorst Suite. There’s a suite available with three open bed spaces. You wouldn’t be able to reserve that space because you’d need a third person in your roommate group. If there’s a suite with only two open beds you will be able to reserve that space.
  • You don’t have preferred roommates, but you want to live in an Alberta Apartment. There is a two-bedroom apartment with one other person already assigned to the space. In this scenario you can reserve the other space in the apartment because it would fill the apartment.

Only one person per suite or apartment needs to log in. That person will pull-in the other roommate(s). This is an open process. Log-in times are not assigned. All students with a Housing and Dining Agreement on file are eligible to participate in this process.

If you did not participate in Same Type of Space or Fill a Suite or Apartment, then General Room Selection is when you’ll want to select your room. If you went online during Fill a Suite or Apartment and didn’t find a space, additional openings will show up during General Room Selection. This process requires you to fill suites and apartments.

This process is also for people who want a room in Caecilian, St. Mary, or Crandall Hall.

Only one person per suite or apartment needs to log in. The person with the earliest log-in time should reserve the room and pull-in all other roommates.

Please follow the schedule based on your student status at the end of this semester. For example, if you will have 80 credits completed at the end of this semester, you are considered a senior and would select your room on April 15 in the morning.

Completed credits + currently enrolled credits = student level

Student Status Date Time Note
Grads and 73 + Credits April 15 9–10:30 a.m. These are general times. You will be assigned a specific log-in time based on your credits.
48–72 Credits April 15 10:40 a.m.–12:30 p.m. These are general times. You will be assigned a specific log-in time based on your credits.
25–47 Credits April 15 1–3 p.m. These are general times. You will be assigned a specific log-in time based on your credits.
<25 Credits April 15 3–5 p.m. These are general times. You will be assigned a specific log-in time based on your credits.
Remaining Spaces April 16 9 a.m. – ongoing No log-in time required, no fill required. During this process, all open spaces will be available to students who didn’t go through the other processes described above. Log-in times are NOT assigned, so students may begin selecting spaces at  a.m.

This process is open March 16–20.

Step 2: Prepare for Room Selection

  • Find a roommate(s) and exchange PIN numbers and St. Kate email addresses. (optional)
  • Explore your apartment/suite/room options and housing rates on My Housing or attend room tours on March 5.
  • Review the different Room Selection events and how they work.
  • Attend an online information session and see how online room selection works.

Room Selection
Room selection is the process in which you may select your specific apartment, suite, or room online through My Housing. You can also pull-in roommates during room selection.

Log-In Times
During general room selection, you will be assigned a log-in day and time. This is when you can log into My Housing to select your room. Roommates sign up together, so whichever roommate has the earliest/best log-in time will reserve the room and pull-in all roommates. Log-in times are assigned based on completed and currently enrolled credits. Your log-in time will be posted on My Housing after April 1.

Roommate Pull-In
This is the process in which you may sign up your roommate(s) to live with you — whether you’re pulling them into your current type of space or you received the best log-in time for general room selection. Remember to exchange PIN numbers, email addresses, and meal plan choices with your roommates!

PIN Number
This is a unique number you will create while completing the Housing and Dining Agreement and Application process. This PIN will be used when pulling roommates into a space during both the same type of space and general room selection processes. If you forget or lose your PIN, there is a PIN reset tool on My Housing.

Occupancy Requirements, Must Fill
Refers to the minimum number of people that must occupy the space. To find specific occupancy requirements for each building, view occupancy requirements info below.

Age Requirement
Refers to Alberta and Georgia, in which residents must be 20 years old by September 1, 2021.

Vacant Spaces
Individual bed spaces that are available. Starting April 12, you may log into My Housing and see vacancies in real time.

Currently, the plan is to continue with all single bedrooms. If roommates are allowed within the same bedroom, we will send out new room selection instructions which will include buy-out information and other occupancy requirements. The information below is assuming we are keeping COVID single bedroom requirements.

Before you pick your perfect space, please familiarize yourself with all of your choices. We encourage you to view building information, photos, space dimensions, and suite/apartment/room diagrams on My Housing.

Each space on campus has a minimum occupancy requirement. That means in order to "fill the space" to minimum occupancy there must be a certain number of students assigned to that space. For example, all Morrison suites must have four people. This number will vary depending on the building. On certain days of the room selection processes you are required to "fill the space" in order to participate. Minimum Occupancy and Buy-out options are outlined below. Please consult the housing rates page for costs associated with buying-out bed spaces.
