Dear Prospective Resident:
To assist you with completing your housing application we created this web-page. It briefly describes the Faculty and Staff Housing Program. The application is designed to provide as much relevant information as possible so that we can offer you housing that most closely suits your needs. Please review these materials thoroughly and complete the application form as best as you can.
Faculty and Staff Housing is allocated as equitably as possible however, it is important to note that there is not sufficient inventory to house everyone or even to assign to each applicant the type of accommodations requested. Every application is given consideration based upon the Rental Housing Eligibility Priority Policy which gives the highest priority to teaching faculty, senior research staff, and senior administrative staff, then progresses through each subsequent category as availability allows.
Faculty and Staff Housing allocation is a process which begins early in the calendar year when we (Faculty and Staff Housing Office), request "housing requirements" from the University departments and programs. That means that we ask departments and programs to tell us who will be coming to Princeton so we can provide housing information directly to the incoming individuals. At the same time, we are gathering information from current residents in University housing concerning their renewal and vacate plans. Although all University leases end on June 30th, many of our residents require lease extensions into the summer months. All of this information is coordinated in the spring and we are usually in a position to begin making specific offers of rental housing beginning in June and continuing through the month of July, sometimes later.
If you are offered a University rental unit, please notify us of your decision as soon as possible. Carefully weigh whether or not the unit will truly meet your housing needs since the University does not allow changes in housing units within a three year period. Of course, exceptional circumstances are considered on an individual basis.
To submit or modify an application for housing log into the Princeton One Stop Housing System. You must have a university issued Net ID and password in order to apply.
We hope we have provided a useful overview of the Faculty and Staff Housing Program. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have further questions.
