Graduate Housing Application Process
Over 70 percent of all enrolled graduate students live in Graduate Housing, whether the Graduate College, the Graduate College Annexes, or in Graduate Apartments.
Priority System for Housing Graduate Students
The Graduate School's policy is to provide housing for all incoming graduate students whose applications for University housing meet the announced deadline in mid-April and to allocate housing so that it is available to an equal percentage of enrolled single students and students with dependents. After all incoming students who have made application to be housed have been housed, the following priority system applies: first-year returning students receive the first priority, second year returning students second priority, and third year returning students third priority. Fourth year returning students and beyond should not expect to receive housing. If there are vacancies after all incoming- to third-year graduate students have been placed, however, housing will be offered to returning fourth year and beyond returning students.
Applying for Graduate Housing
Your method of application for graduate housing will depend on whether you are an incoming graduate student, or whether you are a returning graduate student, in which case you are required to participate in the process of Room Draw. An overview of each method is provided here.
