Spring Housing

In November, University Housing and Residential Life offers new students the opportunity to participate in a housing selection process specifically for students looking to live on-campus for the spring semester.

The option for current returning students not living on-campus to select on-campus housing will also be available.  Current students interested in living on-campus should contact the Housing Department for an immediate assignment.

For Spring 2021, the following dates have been set for the Spring Housing Selection Process for New Students:

  • On Monday, November 16, 2020, the Spring 2021 Housing Application Process will open for students to begin applying for Spring 2021 housing.
  • On Monday, November 23, 2020, our online housing system will open for new students (incoming freshman and transfer students) and returning students who may be interested in returning to on-campus living to select any open vacancies in our current housing inventory.  This online process will remain open for students until Wednesday, January 13, 2021.
  • After Wednesday, January 13, 2021, new and returning students will need to contact the Office of University Housing and Residential Life at (215) 204-7184 (option #2) or click here for assistance in assigning students for the Spring 2021 semester.  

Assignments will occur on a first-come, first-served basis based on when the housing application is completed.


  • All students who apply by Friday, November 20, 2020 will receive a Housing Selection Access Time to start the process of selecting their housing and meal plans on Monday, November 23, 2020 after 11:00 a.m.  Students will receive the e-mail with their access time on Monday morning on November 23, 2020.  


New students living on campus will be permitted to move-in to their Spring 2021 housing assignment on Saturday, January 16, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.  
Students will need to secure accommodations in a local hotel if they are planning to arrive prior to Saturday, January 16, 2021.

Returning students living on campus will be permitted to move-in to their Spring 2021 housing assignment on Sunday, January 17, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
