Application Process

You’ve decided to live on campus—congratulations! Now it’s time to get a spot or get on the wait list.

Please note: HSU does not guarantee housing to all students. Housing is assigned on a first come, first served basis for new students, based on the date you complete your application and pay your nonrefundable fee.

We have experienced significant wait lists in the past years, so applying early is strongly recommended.
