Choose Your Room

Current students who have accepted a fall 2021-spring 2022 HFS Contract can log on to eLiving and choose their room according to this timeline:

Online Room Selection Timeline (First Period)
Current Semester Standing Begin Date
7 and higher Monday, March 15 at 6:00 p.m.
5-6 Tuesday, March 16 at 6:00 p.m.
3-4 Wednesday, March 17 at 6:00 p.m.
1-2 Thursday, March 18 at 6:00 p.m.

This first period of online room selection is open until Friday, April 2 at noon.

A second room selection period is expected to be offered June 1-15. A reminder email will be sent to students in late May with more details.

Students can choose from available rooms in eLiving at My Info > My Room. If students have a mutual roommate with the same housing option, the first person to choose a room will pull in their roommate. Any changes after the initial assignment will affect only the student making the change, not the roommate.

A note about rates:  because 2021-2022 rates have not yet been approved by the Board of Trustees, you'll see a $0.00 rate for all room selections. View the most recent approved 16-week semester rates to compare costs for different room options; rates typically increase year-to-year.
