New Student Housing Application

Preferred Residence Hall
Listed below are your residence hall options. Please rank them according to your preference, leaving blank any options that do no apply to you. Frees, Sheldon, and Smith are traditional style halls, but Smith primarily houses returning students, and our first year students typically make their home in Sheldon or Frees Hall. Burrage and Colonial are reserved for upperclassmen and transfers only.
Although most of our rooms are standard doubles ( two residents per room ), we have some super-sized doubles and triple rooms available. Please indicate which size room you would prefer; we will do our best to accommodate your preference, but rooms are available on a first come, first serve basis.
If you and a friend wish to room together, please list their name here. Your roommate must make a reciprocal request to confirm this.
