Assignments to family housing

Assignment process

Applications are accepted based on space availability.  Since the Family Housing contract is a month-to-month contract, availability varies throughout the year. We make assignments as space becomes available. 

On your housing application, please note your preferred check-in date so we can determine availability for that time frame. We will notify you of availability by telephone or e-mail and later assign a specific apartment once your time frame is confirmed. 

After the assignment

The Residence Hall Director (RHD) will assign your apartment and check-in date. You will need to pay one month’s rent before check-in.

To check in, you will need to present:

  • your receipt for your first month’s rent
  • a copy of your marriage license, divorce papers, children's birth certificate(s), or custody papers (if applicable) to Housing and Residence Life 


ID card
If you do not already have your Northern Arizona University ID Card, visit the JacksCard Office in the University Union. You will need it to check-in.

Visit Parking Services at for parking permits and campus maps. All residents and guests must obtain parking permits prior to parking on campus.

If you need a bed, you may request a full and twin size.

Moving in

When you move in, you will need to unload your belongings at the designated unloading locations. When you check in and get your keys, staff will direct you to these clearly labeled parking spaces. You may check out a handtruck/dolly at your South Village Apartments office.
