As you might have noticed, for those of you live in the Residence Halls, that you received a handy dandy packet when you returned to your room. It’s that time of the year where students must let Residence Life know whether or not they are planning on living on campus next year. Let’s talk about how this works, shall we?
The packet does a pretty good job of explaining how the whole process works. It’s similar to the way you first applied to live in housing. There is a contract and a two hundred dollar deposit. The contract asks you for basic information like your name, address, etc. Then it proceeds to ask if you are a current resident or a list of other things. If you don’t know the answer to that question, then don’t worry. Just ask! There is no such thing as a stupid question. Then it will ask if you’ve been convicted of a felony and how many credits you have. These are ALL important questions, so don’t skip one. They can decide whether or not you’re given a room. There are few terms of agreement that you SHOULD look at before signing your John Hancock! It’s a contract, don’t forget. The words aren’t there just for decoration. Make sure to give them a good look over. If you’re under 18 then it also asks for your parents signature.
When you’re done with THAT all you have to do is pay the deposit. You can pay this with cash, check, or credit card.
Now here’s the super important part, so i’m going to write it in big red letters.
MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE TO TURN IN YOUR DEPOSIT BEFORE APRIL 8TH 2011.*
That’s pretty much all about the housing contract. Once you’re done with that, you can go on the Online Housing Gateway and choose where you want to live. It’s easy as ABC.

P.S. Here’s a copy of the Housing Contract if you DIDN’T receive it, but want it.
P.P.S Check out the new virtual tour videos of the different Residence Halls the University has to offer!
I’m done now…I swear.
Okay, maybe ONE more thing. It’s Monday, Monday. Hanging with Voldemort on Monday! Kind of irrelevant but…we all need a bit of a laugh on this snowy day.
You're right with your * Daisy! –Ash
