ReApp has closed for the 2022-2023 academic year Heading link

If you are a returning Campus Housing resident and didn’t take part in the ReApp process, but would like to live on campus again for the 2022-2023 academic year, you can apply here.

What is ReApp?

ReApp stands for ReApp(lication) to Campus Housing. This opportunity is available to current Housing residents only.

Why should current residents take part in ReApp?

ReApp allows current residents the opportunity to:

  • remain in the same room as they are currently placed if they prefer
  • join a Living Learning Community (LLC)
  • select their specific, preferred room assignment (versus being assigned)
  • have the first opportunity to select their assignment before new, incoming applicants are placed

If you are a current Campus Housing resident, ReApp is your opportunity to select your specific room for the future academic year (Fall 2022 & Spring 2023).
