Welcome back, Patriot. We're glad you're here.

There are a few questions you'll need to answer before you begin the housing application process. 

Three Eligibility Questions for On-Campus Housing

Are you:  
A returning student?

If you answered "yes," to all of the above, then you are eligible to apply for housing for the 2017-2018 academic year.

First Steps

The 2017-2018 Housing Selection appliction will be available at 10AM on Monday, January 23. The necessary links will be active at that time to apply for housing.

Complete your application. Your application and $300 deposit are due no later than Friday, February 10th through eLiving. Upperclass Living Learning Community application is currently available and is due no later than January 27th. Flexible Housing applications are accepted starting Monday, January 23. 

Pay Your Deposit. A non-refundable deposit of $300 per student is due at time of application. The housing application is not complete until the $300 is paid and received. Deposits can only be made via credit card or e-check. We strongly encourage the use of a credit or debit card option. There is a $50 fee for insufficient funds associated with an e-check.

Once a housing agreement is signed, you are locked into the agreement. We advise you not to sign unless you are serious about living here.

Make a Plan. After all housing applications are submitted and approved, you'll have the opportunity to identify your group size and members.

  • Mason encourages students to go into the selection process with one or more buddies. Forming a group improves the likelihood of living with friends or compatible suite mates.
  • Groups can be composed of two, three, four or six people. Individuals select spaces after groups make selections.
  • Selection is done by seniority.
  • Certain types of spaces, such as large apartments and single rooms, are not widely available. Keep your budget in mind, and remember to factor in pricing, location, meal plan requirements, and access to halls over winter break.

Select Your Living Space. Group leaders will choose the space. Selection dates are typically late February to late March. Please refer to the 2017-2018 Housing Selection Cheat Sheet for all dates and other very important information.
