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.


To encourage a welcoming and inclusive community for all, you can request to live in gender-inclusive housing with roommates of any sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression in all communities except Hamilton Hall. Open housing allows you to live with individuals of a different gender that do not necessarily identify as part of the LGBTQA community.  Living with students of a different gender is voluntary. You will not be assigned to such a space unless you specifically express interest. To be eligible, you must apply for Gender Inclusive and Open Housing in addition to participating in the housing renewal process.


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.
