Applying for New Student Housing
The housing process for new UE students begins the minute you send in your admission deposit. Your $100 housing deposit is included in your $300 admissions deposit.
Then, in late February, any student who has paid that deposit will receive a message within the UE Admission Portal from the Office of Residence Life. This message will include information on how to access UE's online application materials for housing and meal plans.
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. View our residence halls.
Housing assignments and move-in information:
- Final housing assignments with building placement, room number, and roommate information will be available on WebAdvisor during the last week of June.
- You will receive an email once housing assignments are uploaded to WebAdvisor.
- If you are on a payment plan and are assigned to a hall that has a different rate or change your meal plan with a different rate, contact the Office of Student Financial Services to make any necessary adjustments.
- New student Move-in information can be found here.
Notes regarding placement and your Housing and Food Service Contract:
- The director of residence life determines exceptions and modifications to housing policy. This includes, but is not limited to space allocation, credit hour requirements, filling vacancies, temporary assignments, consolidations, gender assignments, disability accommodations, reserved housing, theme living, and contract cancellations.
- 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 also 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, in the Residence Life section of the University Website, and in other materials published by the University.
- Please review your Housing and Food Service Contract for more details.
What Students Say...
“Living on campus forced me to get out of my comfort zone and talk to a lot more people than I did in high school. This greatly expanded my social circle and I'm very glad I chose to live on campus.” Pranav ’25, Powell Residence Hall
