Housing Selection Process

How and when do I sign up for housing?

Virtual Housing Sign-Up Week

Fall housing sign-up for returning students is through a virtual sign-up process. Students will request housing by emailing reslife@waldorf.edu on their designated housing sign-up day.  Students must email Residence Life with their top 3 building and floor preferences (3 separate building requests), single room or roommate preference, meal plan preference and parking lot preference. Single rooms will be offered at a limited availability. Students who desire to receive their preferred parking lot assignment must include their parking lot preference with their housing preferences to ensure they receive their parking preference as parking availability will be limited.

      • Seniors (86+ credits earned at completion of the fall 2021 semester):
        • Monday, March 28, 2022 - All seniors signing up for fall housing must email reslife@waldorf.edu from 12-5 p.m. CST
      • Juniors (54-85 credits earned at completion of the fall 2021 semester):
        • Tuesday, March 29, 2022 - All juniors signing up for fall housing must email reslife@waldorf.edu from 12-5 p.m. CST
      • Sophomores (53-24 credits earned at completion of the fall 2021 semester):
        • Wednesday, March 30, 2022 - All sophomores signing up for fall housing must email reslife@waldorf.edu from 12-5 p.m. CST
      • Freshman (23 or less credits earned):
        • Thursday, March 31, 2022 - All freshmen signing up for fall housing must email reslife@waldorf.edu from 12-5 p.m. CST
      • //All remaining returning students who missed their sign-up day
        • Friday, April 1, 2022 - All remaining returning students who missed their sign-up day must email reslife@waldorf.edu from 12-5 p.m. CST

Note: Returning students who missed housing sign-up week and are ineligible to live off campus will be automatically assigned into housing through the Residence Life Office by May 1, 2022. Students who prefer input in their fall housing and roommate assignment must email reslife@waldorf.edu with their housing/roommate preferences before this date.

Sign-Up Order

Students will be assigned into housing based on the order their housing preferences were received through reslife@waldorf.edu between the hours of 12-5 p.m. CST. If a student submits their housing preferences on the wrong day, their requests will be pushed back to the next housing-sign up day. Emails received before 12 p.m. CST will be disqualified for that day and be pushed back to the next housing sign-up day. Only one email per student per day allowed.

Updates on what spaces are available will be provided each day as rooms are claimed.

Residence Life will send students a confirmation email of their fall housing assignment and roommate the week of March 28-April 1, 2022. Those students not receiving their preferred housing assignment may be placed on a waiting list for their preferred hall or single room request.

Sign Up for Housing

Housing sign-up will be based on the number of credits earned by the end of the fall 2020 semester. It is each student’s responsibility to know how many credits he or she has. If a student signs up with the wrong class, the student will be placed at the bottom of the appropriate class.

Credit Requirements

  • Senior: 86+ credits earned at the completion of the fall 2021 semester.
  • Junior: 54-85 credits earned at the completion of the fall 2021 semester.
  • Sophomore: 53-24 credits earned at the completion of the fall 2021 semester.
  • Freshman: 23 or less credits earned.

*Credits do not include enrolled spring 2022 credits or 2022 summer session credits

Theme Houses and Timberland Apartments

Theme house and Timberland applications are due to the Office of Student Life by 4 p.m. on March 4. Interviews for both will be held the week of March 14, 2022. Selections for Theme Houses and Timberland Apartments will be sent out through email the week of March 21, 2022.

Housing Agreement
