Applying for Housing for New Students
The housing process for new UE students begins the minute you send in your admission deposit.
$100 of that $300 deposit becomes your housing deposit. Then, in early March, any student who has paid that deposit will receive a message from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, with information that includes:
- Your student ID number
- Information on how to access online application materials for housing and meal plans
- Information on how to register online for our Summer Orientation and Academic Registration (SOAR) program or our Student Transfer Advising and Registration (STAR)
- Health card and insurance forms
Your online housing application offers choices among UE’s residence halls, and even allows you to request your roommate. If you don’t have a roommate in mind, room assignments don’t happen until after the second SOAR, so you have time to make a request – or, you can have a roommate assigned based on common interests and habits.
Final housing assignments with building placement, room number, and roommate information will be available on WebAdvisor during the 3rd full week of July. You will receive an e-mail once housing assignments are uploaded to WebAdvisor.
Note: If you are on a payment plan and are assigned to a hall that has a different rate, contact the Office of Student Accounts to make any necessary adjustments.
The University reserves the right to make or change assignments, assign a new roommate, or consolidate spaces at any point of the academic year based on the needs of the program.
The University reserves the right to cancel a housing contract for academic failure, non-payment for services, breach of contract, criminal behavior, or violation of rules of conduct and/or housing regulations as outlined in the Student Handbook, on the residence life website, and in other materials published by the University.
The director of residence life determines exceptions and modifications to basic housing policies. These decisions include space allocation, credit hour requirements, filling vacancies, temporary assignments, consolidations, gender assignments, disability accommodations, reserved housing, theme living, and contract cancellations.
