Housing Selection Stages

The Housing Selection Process is a four stage process involving multiple steps. The four stages are as follows:
  1. STAGE 1: SUBMIT THE HOUSING DEPOSIT
  2. STAGE 2: COMPLETE THE HOUSING CONTRACT
  3. STAGE 3: COMPLETE EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION
  4. STAGE 4: SELECT YOUR HOUSING AND MEAL PLAN
STAGE 1: SUBMIT THE HOUSING DEPOSIT AND DEPOSIT TIMELINE

Returning and Graduate students will need to complete and submit the 2017–2018 Housing Deposit Form:
 
1. Log into TUportal, and access MyHousing.
2. Pay the $250 housing deposit online to reserve your place in the Housing Selection Process.
 
New Students will complete the Tuition and Housing Deposit Form on the “Next Steps” Channel in TUportal to submit housing deposits. Students are prompted to pay tuition and housing deposits together.
 
RETURNING STUDENTS CAN ALSO SUBMIT THE DEPOSIT IN PERSON OR BY MAIL:

STAGE 2: COMPLETE THE HOUSING CONTRACT
Students will need to complete their housing contract in the MyHousing system via the TUportal.
 
There are five (5) steps to completing the housing contract and they are:
  1. Confirming your contact information
  2. For students under the age of 18 years old, they will need to have a parent or legal guardian serve as a co-signer
  3. Agree to the Terms and Conditions of the housing license
  4. Create a ROOMMATE PIN for Roommate Pull-in
  5. Review of the summary page
After each of these steps has been completed, students can then proceed to Stage 3 (Emergency Contact Information) and Stage 4 (Online Housing Selection). Please note that Stage 4 (Online Housing Selection) will not open until certain dates for our various population of students: new students, returning students, and graduate students.
 
STAGE 3: COMPLETE EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION
After Stage 2 is complete, students can complete Stage 3. A condition of residing on campus is providing our department with emergency contact information in the event that we need to contact your family in cases of an emergency. After this step has been completed, students can then proceed to Stage 4 (Online Housing Selection) and proceed with booking their housing and meal plans.
 
STAGE 4: SELECT YOUR HOUSING AND MEAL PLAN
The Online Housing Selection system makes room and meal assignments easy. Simply log into MyHousing and click on the appropriate icon for the process you’re using. For example, Freshmen and Transfers will select the Online Housing Selection for New Students logo. Returning students will use the Online Housing Selection for Returning Students logo.
 
THERE ARE SIX STEPS OF THE ONLINE HOUSING SELECTION PROCESS:
  1. Booking terms: Students will select the fall 2017 and spring 2018 terms to book your assignment and meal plan.
  2. Roommates: Students will select roommates of your choosing and add them to your booking. Note: in order to pull in a roommate, you will need to know your prospective roommates’ PIN.
  3. Search for available rooms: For information about each hall, go to housing.temple.edu.
  4. Lock your room choice for 10 minutes while you make your final decision.
  5. Select your meal plan.
  6. Review summary and finish: Students will print your room confirmation and deposit receipt.
