Terms and Conditions

The Terms and Conditions of the Housing License and Dining Services Agreement precedes the Online Housing Selection process and students enter into a legally binding contract for the full academic year upon securing housing. As soon as you book a room for yourself, you are immediately and automatically under contract with UHRL.

We highly suggest that students and their families read the Terms and Conditions to fully understand our expectations. 


Housing Selection Steps

Using your accessnet username and password, sign into MyHousing (my.housing.temple.edu

Newly admitted undergraduate students can activate their Accessnet username by going to http://accounts.temple.edu.  You must have your Accessnet username and your pin (sent via mail) available before accessing MyHousing.

Complete the online housing application by following these steps:

  1. Sign the housing license.
  2. Verify your emergency contact information.
  3. Fill out your student profile.
  4. Create a roommate group (optional).
  5. Pay the $250 housing deposit.
  6. Apply for specialty housing (optional).
  7. Select your housing assignment.

Housing Deposit

Paying the housing deposit does not guarantee a housing assignment.

If you pay the housing deposit and do not live on campus, the deposit will be credited to your tuition account. If you'd like that deposit as a refund, complete the online cancellation form for the upcoming academic year which typcially opens in March.
