+How do I reserve my housing?

The application to reserve your housing and parking through Lowell Hall will be live in February 2022. Admitted students will receive communication about reserving their on-campus housing around that time.

Housing and parking costs will be split equally between the two, 8-week terms. Payments are due at the start of each term. Specific dates will be communicated to students at the time of Orientation in mid-October.
