Don’t Forget!

You can apply for housing immediately after you apply for admission to the university. You don’t have to wait until you are officially admitted.

Applying for housing: A few simple steps

  1. Complete your residence hall application and contract (see application process below).
  2. Submit your $100 residence hall deposit with your completed application.

Residence hall application process

After you’ve applied for admission to the university, you can apply for housing. You don’t have to wait until you’re admitted. You’ll need your mySFA username and password, which you should have received after applying for admission. Admitted students will be able to select a residence hall assignment based on the date that the residence hall application and deposit are submitted – the earlier the better! The residence hall application can be found online by following the steps below.

  1. Log in to your mySFA account.
  2. Select the Campus Life tab.
  3. Select Residence Life Services.
  4. Log in to Residence Life Services with your mySFA account information.
  5. Choose the correct application for your upcoming term.
  6. Complete your application, and submit your $100 deposit.
  7. Check your SFA email account for your application confirmation.

Priority benefits process

Apply early to be eligible to select your room during the Priority Benefits dates in December. First-year students who have completed the Residence Life application, paid their Residence Life deposit and are admitted by Dec. 1 will be able to select their fall housing assignment in December. All other applicants must wait until the first week of April to choose their room.

Selecting your residence hall

You will be eligible to select your room after you’ve been admitted to the university. You’ll be notified when it’s time to select your room through your SFA email account.
