Students who have made application for housing prior to the deadline should expect to receive a housing contract and assignment by late July. Wait listed students will receive a housing assignment on a rolling basis as space becomes available. Housing Assignment notification and contracts are sent to an incoming student's Princeton-e-mail account. Directions for setting up an account are sent to all incoming Graduate Students in late Spring or early Summer.
