5 Steps to Living on Campus
With so many students wanting to participate in the residential experience, we have
reached full capacity on campus. Before submitting your fall/spring 2019-20 housing
application, please read this important information regarding on-campus housing availability to learn more about your options and our Standby List process.
Step 1: Housing application
Complete the housing application in the housing portal.
All first-time-in-college campus residents are required to select a meal plan as part of the application.
Step 2: application fee
Step 3: immunizations
Submit/verify your Student Health Services immunization information.

The reservation system opens on March 11 for those starting summer or fall.
Step 5: Select your room

You can see which steps have and have not been completed in the Housing Portal.

Starting in the Summer?
If you start in the summer B term and wish to live on campus for the summer B, fall, and spring semesters, you will need to repeat steps 1 & 2 for the summer B application in addition to the fall/spring application.
Want to live in a Living Learning Community (LLC)?
Students who would like to live in an LLC must complete the LLC application in the Programs & Events section of the Housing Portal.
Once the first two steps are completed, your place in line is set. Your place in line determines the earliest date and time that you will be able to participate in room selection (check your USF email regularly). However, you will not be eligible to participate in room selection until the first four steps are completed. If you decide not to attend USF, it will be your responsibility to cancel your housing contract before the cancellation deadlines to avoid charges. View the cancellation deadlines in the housing contract.
