Please watch this page for more dates and announcements about the 2023-2024 Room Selection Process.
Welcome to the Room Selection Information Page!
The Room Selection Process at the University of New Haven is the process by which currently enrolled undergraduate students apply for and select their housing for the upcoming academic year. Annually, the Office of Residential Life hosts and facilitate this process for students to pick their room for the next academic year with their selected roommate group. Please see below for important dates and a list of frequently asked questions about our process.
Please note, the deadline to submit a room deposit and housing application (March 3, 2023) has passed. If you submitted your materials late, you will be added to our housing waiting list for the 2023-2024 academic year. We will begin placing students off of the waiting list following the conclusion of the Room Selection Process.
Students who are eligible for the Room Selection Process have been added to a course in Canvas. This invitation was sent via email on March 6, 2023. Students who received the invitation should check the Eligibility List located under "Discussions" and email firstname.lastname@example.org should they have any questions.
Students who are not eligible for the Room Selection Process have not been added to the Canvas course. Please note, wait list students will receive an invitation after the Room Selection Process has concluded.
Can I still submit a room deposit and housing application for Fall '23?
Yes! You can still submit, but you will be added to our waiting list for housing. As a reminder, your room deposit should be submitted through ePay and your continuing student housing application should be submitted through myHousing. You will see your housing application the day after you submit your room deposit.
Who should participate in the Room Selection Process?
Currently enrolled undergraduate students who are interested in living on campus for the upcoming academic year should plan to participate in the Room Selection Process.
How do I become eligible for the Room Selection Process?
Students wishing to participate in the Room Selection process must complete the following three steps in the order listed to become eligible:
- Resolve any outstanding balances with the Bursar’s Office. Students who have an active financial hold are not permitted to pay a room deposit for the upcoming academic year.
- Submit a $500 room deposit in ePay. Learn how to submit your room deposit here!
- Complete the Continuing Student Housing Application in the myHousing portal. Students who have not submitted a room deposit in ePay will not see the housing application. After submitting your deposit, you will see your housing application within 24 hours.
I have a current Housing Modification. How do I renew it?
Any currently enrolled student with a current Housing Modification that is approved by the Accessibility Resources Center (ARC) must renew their Housing Modification for the upcoming academic year by February 3, 2023. To renew/edit your current housing modification, please email Erica Hutchinson at ARC@newhaven.edu
I do not currently have a Housing Modification. How do I apply for one?
Any currently enrolled student who needs to apply for new Housing Modification who does not currently have a Housing Modification must complete this form by February 3, 2023, for review by the Accessibility Resources Center (ARC).
Are there opportunities to secure priority room selection?
The only students permitted priority room selection are those approved for Housing Modifications by the Accessibility Resources Center. However, we do have various opportunities for students to become eligible for a raffle to win their housing preference for them and their roommates. Students have been notified of these opportunities via their student email. Please note, any student who wins a raffle for their first housing preference must be eligible for the Room Selection Process by the deadline above. Additionally, their preferred roommates must also be eligible by the deadline.
Can I live with students who have different academic standings?
We permit sophomore students to only match with other sophomore students as roommates. Juniors and Seniors may create roommate groups with other Juniors and Seniors.
What happens after I become eligible for the Room Selection Process?
After the deposit and application deadline in March, the Office of Residential Life will release an eligibility list that will outline all the students eligible for the Room Selection Process. Soon after that list is shared, you will be able to select your roommates and pick a room! A more detailed schedule of the Room Selection Process will be shared in February.
I am enrolled in a Pathway Program. What should I do?
If you are enrolled in a Pathway Program and will begin next academic year as an undergraduate student and transition to your graduate program in the spring semester, you should plan to participate in the Room Selection Process. You will be permitted to remain in your selected housing assignment for the spring semester. If you are enrolled in a Pathway Program and will begin the next academic year as a graduate student, you will be placed in graduate housing after completing the eligibility steps list above.
