Assignments to family housing

The family housing contract is a month-to-month contract and availability varies throughout the year. Placements into family housing are made as space becomes available.

On the housing application for the waiting list, you will be requested to note your preferred check-in date so we can determine availability for that time frame.
Once an apartment is available, we will notify you by telephone or email to arrange a move-in date.
Verification of receipt of required documents: a copy of your marriage license, divorce papers, children's birth certificate(s), or custody papers (if applicable) will be completed.
Your student LOUIE account will be charged rent based on the agreed upon date of move-in. Payment of one month's rent must be made to the LOUIE account before move-in occurs. Upon confirmation of payment the hall staff will be notified of your arrival.
