University Housing is now taking applications for the 2013-14 academic year. Apply to live on-campus and in the new North Campus Village!
You can find more information about Housing, our buildings, and the application on our application website. We’ll have a VIP sign-up day on Friday, April 12 for any student that has lived in the residence halls for the last 2 years. Students will be able to pick their room and roommate for next year!
April 15-16, we’ll have regular sign-up days for any student currently living on-campus. Students will be able to pick their room and roommates during these days as well.
For all new SOU students, they can apply today to live on-campus, but they will not receive their housing assignment until this summer. However, all placements are done based on when they apply for housing, so the sooner you apply, the more likely you’ll get your first choice!
