Deposited Student Information
Access your student portal to complete the following:
Community Living Agreement: Whether you live on- or off-campus, all new students are required to submit a Community Living Agreement no later than July 1. The Community Living Agreement is where you will rank your housing preferences. It’ll also help the Residence Life team get to know you so that they can match you with the perfect roommate. The sooner you submit this, the sooner you will learn which floor you’ll call home next year!
If you want to petition to waive the housing and/or meal plan requirements please contact your admission counselor. If you have any further questions about housing please contact Jen Nelson, Director of Residence Life.
