Housing Placement Priority

We strongly encourage students to apply early to establish their housing placement priority. Housing placement priority is based on the following:

  1. Receipt of completed housing application
  2. Receipt of $300 housing placement fee.
  3. Visa approval confirmation for students from China and Vietnam.

Our popular Campus Corner Apartments fill every quarter and have a waiting list. So, apply early.
