Assignments to family housing

Assignment process

We make assignments every semester as space becomes available. On your housing application, please note your preferred check-in date so we can determine availability for that timeframe. We will notify you of availability by telephone or e-mail and later assign a specific apartment once your timeframe is confirmed.
