Students Who Plan to Study Abroad

Students who plan to study abroad in the Fall:

If you are planning to study abroad in the fall, you still need to complete the online housing agreement in preparation for your return to campus housing in the spring. It is also important that you complete the online room preference information. You won't take part in the housing selection process, so if you receive a selection time slot, you will just ignore that. Instead, Housing will use your preference information to guide us as we assign you a space when you return to campus in the spring. Your spring housing assignment will be available in Banner Student Housing app right before Winter Break.

If you will have 3rd- or 4th-year study year status when you return to campus in the spring and are interested in living in an apartment community, you have several options:

  • You can apply for one of the two four-person spring semester only apartments. To do that, you must have a group of four people and submit an apartment application by the published deadline.
  • You can be named as a replacement roommate by students living in the apartments in the fall who are losing a roommate for the spring semester.
  • You can indicate a preference for living in an apartment, and you may be placed there if there is an available spot.

If you will be a 3rd or 4th-year student by the start of the 2022 spring semester, you can apply to live off campus. You must submit an off campus application. If you meet the qualifications, you will be provisionally approved to live off campus pending your attendance at a required workshop when you return in the spring. If you won't be a 4th-year student, you should plan to live on campus.


Students who plan to study abroad in the Spring:

If you are planning to study abroad in the spring, you will need to complete the online housing agreement by the published deadline and go through the housing selection process. You will be expected to check out of your room by the Winter Break closing date.


Students who are taking classes away from campus that are less than a semester in length:

If you are studying away from campus at the beginning of fall semester, blocks 1 and 2, you will not participate in housing selection. When you return to campus, Housing will assign you to a space based on availability.

If you are studying away from campus blocks 3 and 4, blocks 5 and 6, or blocks 7 and 8, you may participate in housing selection. Those students studying away during blocks 7 and 8 must completely vacate their housing assiggnment before departing to their study away destination.
