This process is only for current residents who will live on campus for the Fall 2014/Spring 2015 academic year. Current Freshmen are required to live-on as sophomores according to the University's second year live-on requirement. (All new applicants or students who are not currently living on campus must submit a new application and pay the $100 application fee.)
March 31 - Same Room, Same Hall (except Pride Rock and Whitley) If you would like to return to your same room, this day is for you!
April 2 - Same Hall, Different Room (except Pride Rock and Whitley) If you would like to return to the same hall but want a different room, this day is for you!
April 7 - Graduate Students/Seniors If you would like a different building or missed an earlier date and have at least 90 hours or are part of a graduate program, you may reapply on this day.
April 9 - Juniors (60-89 hours) If you would like a different building or missed an earlier date and have at least 60 hours, you may reapply on this day.
April 11 - Sophomores (30-59 hours) If you would like a different building or missed an earlier date and have at least 30 hours, you may reapply on this day.
April 15 - Freshmen (less than 30 hours) If you are a current resident who has not reapplied, you may reapply on this day.
April 30 - Reapplication Closes
The Reapplication process is done completely online. To reapply for housing, access the Lion's Den program through your MyLeo account. It will be open on these dates at 7:00am. Please view this document for a step-by-step guide to logging in and using the Lion's Den system.
Can I "shop around" during this process? Yes, you may select a room and then continue to peruse the available spaces without losing your initial selection during your assigned day and then after April 15th at 7:00am. Once you have completed the contract, the "room swap" option will be available to look at other locations and choose a different room space.
Do I need to pay the $100 application fee? No. If you are a current resident, your application fee transfers to each semester.
I want a private room but I don't see that option. What do I do? Due to demand, we can't always guarantee private rooms during reapplication but may once we have opened in the fall. If you would like a private room that is not available through the reapplication process, you may complete a waitlist form in hopes that one will be available at fall opening.
I didn't get the building or room I wanted. What are my options? Unfortunately, we only have so many spaces in each building so some of you may have to choose a second or third option. However, you may complete a waitlist form to be placed on the waitlist for a particular building or location if a space comes available.
I really loved staying in Pride Rock or Whitley. Can I live there again next year? While we understand the good memories created in the Freshman buildings, we need to keep those rooms open for our incoming Freshmen who are required to live on campus. Just as you had the opportunity to live in a building of your peers, we will provide that opportunity to the incoming Freshmen.
