Housing for Incoming Undergraduates

Parent Portal

We'll fill you in on the latest, greatest, most important, and FUN info pertaining to your resident student.

July 2019

Hello Parents, Families, and Friends,

We hope everyone is enjoying the summer. While your student is enjoying their time off, we felt it was important to provide some items for you to keep in mind as you start preparing for the upcoming school year.

Room Assignment Portal

The Room Assignment Portal will be available to view beginning late-August. This portal will contain the students’ move in time and date, room assignment, roommates and roommates’ emails. That way they can start coordinating on what to bring.

Dining Plan Option

Students will have the opportunity to select a meal plan that best suits their needs. Later on this month, you will be receiving a mailer to your home from dining services detailing the different options that your student can select from. Your student will be able to make their dining plan selection via the Housing Portal in mid-July.


This year, move-in weekend is Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22. Your student’s assigned move-in date and time will be available on the MyRoomAssignment Portal in late-August. If your student needs to move in earlier, there will be a limited number of early move-in time slots available to choose from on the MyRoomAssignment Portal. Please make sure that you plan accordingly. If you have any questions regarding move-in, please contact your Residential Life Office.

Housing Bill / Installment Plans

You can expect your student’s first housing bill by early September. For more convenience there are 3 installment plans for housing fees available: Pay in Full, quarterly or monthly. If your student receives any form of financial aid, whether it is loans or grants, we recommend that they select quarterly since financial aid is disbursed to the student’s account on a quarterly basis. When the students filled out their preferences during the housing contracting period, they were able to indicate which installment plan they preferred. Your student will be emailed regarding changing their installment plan (if needed) before the housing charges are applied.
