Parent and Guardian Information for Room Selection, 2021-22

Dear University of New Haven Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the Office of Residential Life, I would like to thank you and your students for your cooperation and the flexibility you continue to exhibit as we work together to respond to the ever-evolving impact of the pandemic.

The current academic year has been unique in many ways and unlike anything we have experienced. Still, we have organized more than 365 virtual and in-person programs for our resident students that have had a cumulative attendance of nearly 6,200. We are proud of the resolve and resilience our students have shown, the creative ways they have developed to stay engaged with each other, and their commitment to protecting the health and well-being of our University community.

We are excited for what the spring semester has in store, and we are already planning for the 2021-22 academic year when we hope and expect that the impact of the pandemic will have lessened.

With that in mind, I would like to share some important details with you about the room selection process for living on campus during the 2021-22 academic year. Information about the process was recently sent to students. Our goal is to make the Room Selection Process as simple and efficient as possible. Here is some information to keep in mind.

To be eligible to participate in the Room Selection Process for the 2021-22 academic year, students must complete the following steps:

  • Resolve any balance(s) on their student financial account with the One Stop.
  • Complete and submit a Housing Application by March 19 on myHousing.
  • Submit their $500 room deposit by March 19 through ePay. Please be advised that the Room Deposit is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

We will be holding information sessions, virtual residence hall tours, and additional question-and-answer programs. Details about these programs will be posted in the Parents and Family Facebook Group, as well as on myCharger. Information about the Room Selection Process can be found at

Also, during the Room Selection Process, students will have the opportunity to choose a meal plan. To learn more about our meal plan options, please visit

We are committed to ensuring that the on-campus living experience is the best it can be, and we encourage both families and students to make use of the Office of Residential Life to ask any questions or address any concerns you may have. As always, you and your student should feel free to contact me directly.

If you or your student has specific questions about the Room Selection Process, please call (203) 479-4239 or email

We look forward to continuing to provide all of our students a home away from home where they can flourish.
