Returning Residents

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

Housing Selection is the process where current residential students apply to live on campus the following academic year. Due to demand, we are unable to guarantee housing to our upperclass students.  We do offer upperclass housing options based on availability and this changes year to year.  Please look here for the most updated information regarding Housing Selection 2019.

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?
A current campus resident, living on campus?
A full-time undergraduate?

If you answered "yes," to all of the above, then you are eligible to apply for housing for the 2019-2020 academic year.


First Steps

The 2019-2020 Housing Selection application will be available at 1 PM on January 28, 2019. The necessary links will be active at that time to apply for housing.

Complete your application. Your application must be completed no later than February 4, 2019, at 4:00 PM. 

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 and selection will take place in late February. Please refer to the 2018-2019 Housing Selection Cheat Sheet for an overview of last year's selection process. The 2019-2020 Housing Selection Cheat Sheet will be posted prior to the application launch date on January 28.


Expanded Triples

Expanded Triples in Upper-Class Residence Halls

Housing and Residence Life identified a group of upperclass double occupancy rooms that are large enough per square feet and that meet all state and local building codes to convert to expanded triple occupancy rooms. These rooms have furniture selected and purchased to fit in the room and provide each student with a bed, desk, chair, dresser, and closet/wardrobe. The per student rate for these rooms is priced to reflect three students sharing a space instead of two students. The rates for 2018-2019 can be found here and the 2019-2020 rates will be posted in the spring.
