Housing Expo

Housing Expo 2017

The Housing Expo is your opportunity to decide where and with whom you will be living for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Don’t forget:

  1. Bring your student ID
  2. Bring a printed copy of the email you will be receiving from Residence Life, which will contain your housing selection number and also indicates your allotted time slot for attending the Housing Expo. This email is sent at the end of January 2017.
  3. Complete the online contract. If you have not completed an online contract, your space can not be reserved.

Expo date: Monday, February 13 – Friday, February 17

The Department of Residence Life will work hard to meet your needs, but please come to the Expo with a list of preferred roommates, if possible.

For questions contact Carrie Noble at or 612-330-1488.
