Applying for Housing


Returning Students (current residential or commuter students):

All returning students will need to apply for housing at live.upike.edu.  In addition to the typical lifestyle questionnaire, students will also be asked to provide emergency contact and medical insurance information.  Be sure to have those documents ready to fill out the application.

Students will be able to select a room and add a roommate to their room during the following timeline:

Credit Hours Date System Opens
60+ Wednesday, April 4
30-59 Thursday, April 5
0-29 Friday, April 6
All Students Saturday, April 7 - Monday, April 9

 

Once a housing selection has been submitted, no adjustment will be made until after first three weeks of the Fall 2018 semester.  

All housing assignments are reserved in real-time and therefore will be processed on a first-come first-serve basis.

 

New Students (Incoming First-Year Students, Transfer Students, Former Students Returning to the University, and Graduate Students):
 

All new students are required to provide information regarding their housing plans for the 2018-2019 academic year.  The application will gather information for students wishing to live on campus as well as allow commuter students the option to select a meal plan.  Please fill out the Housing and Meal Plan Application at live.upike.edu.
