Housing Expo

Housing Expo 2020: February 10-14, 2020

Housing Expo is the opportunity to decide where and with whom you want to live for the following academic year.  Before Expo, students receive a selection number based on the number of credits they have, so the more completed credits you have, the higher your selection number.  At Housing Expo, you and your roommates add up your selection numbers and that total number determines what day you can come and choose your housing. 

Don’t forget:

  1. Bring your student ID
  2. Bring a digital or 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 2020.
  3. Complete the online contract. If you have not completed an online contract, your space can not be reserved.
