Returning Residents

Returning Residents

Housing Selection is the process where current residential students apply to live on campus for the following academic year. All current residential students are welcome to apply, but, due to the high demand, we are unable to guarantee housing for all upperclass students. Rising sophomores who successfully complete the housing selection process are guaranteed on-campus housing and we will work to house as many rising juniors and seniors as we can. 


In order to live on campus students must meet the following requirements: 

  • A full-time undergraduate student 
  • A returning student

First Steps

Complete a housing application via StarRez. Your application must be completed no later than February 2, 2021, at 11:59PM

Once a housing agreement is signed and the housing deposit is paid, you are locked into the agreement. We advise you not to sign unless you are serious about living on campus.

Make a Plan. After all housing applications are submitted and approved, you'll have the opportunity to identify your group size and members starting February 26, 2021.

  • Mason encourages students to go into the selection process with one or more buddies as this improves the likelihood of living with friends/compatible suite mates.
  • Groups can be composed of up to six people. You can also go through this process as an individual.
  • 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 March 1-3. The 2021-2022 Housing Selection FAQ Guide is coming soon!
