Current Resident Room Selection: Fall/Spring 2018-19
Step 1: Complete your housing application
Complete a housing application online, and submit the $50.00 application fee by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, February 15. Please note that if your application fee is not received by Friday, February 16, you may not be able to participate in Room Selection beginning on Monday, February 19. Current students accepted to LLCs for 2018-19 (except the Honors LLC) will receive a room assignment and will not participate in room selection.
Online in OASIS | (How to Make a Housing Payment in OASIS) (Mastercard, Discover credit & debit cards, and electronic checks): You will be prompted to pay online after you have successfully submitted your housing application. If you do not wish to make your payment at that time, you may access OASIS later by visiting the Housing homepage (usf.edu/housing) and selecting "Make A Payment."
In Person at the USF Cashier's Office (cash, checks, and money orders): Please make checks and money orders payable to University of South Florida, write the student U# in the memo, and ask the cashier to line item the payment toward housing.
Step 2 (optional): Determine roommates
If you are interested in living with your friends next year, have those conversations prior to the selection dates so that you have all the needed information to complete selection (see Unit-Mates section below)
Step 3: Explore hall options
Develop a list of possible buildings you wish to live in. As beds are limited in each building, you should plan to develop a list that includes multiple options in ranked order. If you have decided to live with friends, make sure you have planned out who will live in each room if you choose a suite or apartment. Explore hall options and view hall rates.
Early February: All current residents will receive an email at their USF email address indicating the date and time they are scheduled to participate in room selection. This indicates the earliest date/time you may select your room on your own. You may participate in room selection anytime after your assigned date/time and before the end of room selection, however spaces fill quickly and we encourage students to select a room at the earliest possible opportunity. Please see the Unit-Mates section for information about having another student select for you.
Step 4: Select your room
General Room Selection: Monday, February 19 - Friday, February 23
A student's General Room Selection sign-up time is determined by the number of semesters lived on campus. The more semesters a student has lived on campus, the earlier the sign-up date/time during General Room Selection. Beginning at your assigned date/time, you will be able to select a room online from the available spaces.
Unit-Mates (Roommates • Suite-mates • Apartment-mates)
This part of the process is undergoing changes to make room selection even easier. More information coming soon!
Winter Break Housing
Most residence halls close for winter break. The hall options page indicates which residence halls will be open over winter break.
If you plan to live in the Greek Village next year, you do not need to complete a housing application at this time. You will need to complete a housing application at a later date prior to move-in. Please contact your Community Manager for more information on Greek Village assignments. Greek Village housing is a 12 month experience that includes summer occupancy and payment. If you choose not to live in Greek Housing over the summer, the rent is not prorated.
More information coming soon!
If You Currently Live Off-Campus
You are welcome to participate in general room selection. Please complete the steps listed above and note that you will be able to select a room from the available spaces starting Wednesday, February 28 at 2:30 p.m.
