Important Renewal Process Information


If you are participating in the room renewal process, you must select a four-digit numerical PIN. When setting your PIN, choose one you will remember as housing staff does not have the ability to look up or reset PIN numbers. If you are pulling friends into your room, you will need their PIN number to complete the process. If you are being pulled into a friend’s room, they will need your PIN number.


While the majority of housing is assigned based on roommates having the same gender, we are proud to also offer Gender Inclusive Housing and Open Housing. These housing options provide the opportunity to select an assignment that does not require all roommates to be of the same sex or gender.
Gender Inclusive Housing brings together individuals as part of a welcoming and inclusive community where roommates can select to live with each other regardless of sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Open Housing is designed to accommodate requests to live with individuals with a different gender. This housing option is to accommodate requests for male and female students to reside in the same room or apartment.

Please email with questions.


The Village Apartments offer unfurnished efficiencies, deluxe efficiencies, one bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. Eligible students must be of sophomore status and above, at least 21 years old, or students with families/partners.
