Submitting Requests

 In January, all departments should begin to submit to Residential Life and Housing their faculty housing request forms for the next academic year (Cick here for the Faculty Housing Request Form).  Once request forms are received, faculty apartment assignments are made, and the apartment leases are sent to the new tenants. The summer apartment leases will be sent to the tenants by the beginning of May and the fall apartment leases by the end of July. The tenant needs to sign and return the lease agreement to Residential Life and Housing.  Please be sure to include any special housing needs on the request form. Some examples of special needs are:  inability to climb stairs, allergies (dust, pet, etc), pet free, tub versus shower, close access to parking.

      Housing requests are prioritized based on the following:

  1. First priority is given to visiting faculty members who are teaching a block or two.
  2. Second priority is given to visiting faculty members who are teaching a full academic year.
  3. Third priority is given to new faculty members.
  4. Fourth priority is given to new administrators.
  5. Fifth priority is given to other faculty or College employees.

The placement of all individuals is based on availability, the date by which we receive the request (first come, first served) and specific requirements (size of apartment, etc.). We consider the number of people who will be staying in the apartment, any special needs, and length of stay. We offer studio/efficiency apartments, as well as 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. Because we are trying to accommodate as many requests as possible, there may be times when we must change a housing assignment prior to arrival. If such a situation develops, we will make every effort to notify the tenant in a timely fashion.
