How to Apply for Themed Housing

  • Fill out the application found here.  Applications are due back in Residential Services mid-February each year. In addition to the application, students interested in living in a themed house must be interviewed by the Residential Services staff in mid-February.
  • Students who wish to apply for themed housing must sign up for housing selection on bannerweb. 
  • Students who are assigned to a Themed House do not go through the Housing Selection Night Process as they have already been assigned a room.  Students will be informed of their application status via email in late February.

Please note: all dates mentioned above are date ranges only. It is important that you check the Important Dates & Deadlines calendar for exact dates of each step in the Themed Housing application process.
