Housing and Study Abroad


Students planning on participating on study abroad and considering their housing options upon their return (usually for Winter-Spring quarters) should be aware of the following policies when seeking on-campus housing:

  • Students may not reserve the space by paying for it for fall quarter.
  • Due to limited space availability, study abroad students are not encouraged to expect specific roommates, as only shared spaces (either on single units or a single space in a double unit) will become available. 
  • We strongly and highly recommend students find off-campus housing coming back from abroad due to the limited amount of spaces available.

Application Process

  • If you know you will be studying abroad for the Fall 2017 quarter and would like to apply for on-campus housing for the winter/spring 2018 quarters, the Winter/Spring 2018 Housing Application will be available in your PioneerWeb starting on January 30th.
  • The waitlist will be based upon a completed housing application date. This housing application will remain open until the start of Winter 2018. Please know the earlier you complete the application, the higher you will be on the waitlist when housing begins making those placements.
  • HRE will communicate with the winter/spring 2018 waitlist students beginning in August 2017. There will be monthly communication emailed to students to let them know about the winter housing waitlist.
  • The winter quarter room assignments will not begin until week 8 of Fall quarter, as we will know which spaces will be available starting then. There will be an ongoing placements to students based upon their application completion date. Students will be communicated monthly to let them know the status of the waitlist.
  • Spaces available for students returning from study abroad are predominantly in the 2nd year residence halls (Nelson, Nagel and Towers). As students are placed in on-campus housing, they will be emailed with their room assignment information. Students will need to cancel by the date listed in the placement email to avoid any late cancellation penalties.
