Applying for Campus Housing

All new students will receive the housing application with their acceptance letter from the Office of Enrollment Services. All other students must complete a housing application and be registered full-time for the semester that they plan to live on campus.

A $50.00 advance housing deposit must be paid at the Office of the Bursar before any application will be processed. Students who apply before the end of May for the Fall semester or the end of November for the Spring semester are more likely to receive a room assignment.

Refunds are available based on the official withdrawal date from the residence halls. Room charges are prorated only during the first eight (8) weeks of the semester. Meal plan charges are prorated on a weekly basis. The advance housing deposit is refundable until July 1 for the Fall semester and until December 15 for Spring semester. Deposits made after these dates are refundable 30 days from the day payment are received, or until the first day of class, whichever comes first.

If you have questions during the application process - or even before you decide whether to apply - feel free to call the Office of Residential Life (516) 876-3210 send an e-mail to
