Once admitted to the university, you can apply for housing by submitting a housing contract through My College Roomie Housing at

You must first be admitted to the university. Early application increases your chances of receiving your preferred housing assignment. We suggest you apply by June 1 for the following Fall semester or by December 1 for the following Spring semester.

On-campus housing is guaranteed for students who meet the first year full-time undergraduate housing requirement. All other students are assigned housing based upon date of application and space availability. A waitlist will be created to manage this list of students.

There is a non-refundable application fee of $125. The fee is required to be paid in full in order to process the contract. Should you decide to cancel your housing contract, you will need to submit a UAH Housing Contract Appeal form. If you are approved, the application fee will not be refunded and you will be assessed a cancellation fee based on the received date. Failure to cancel housing prior to the applicable semester will result in a campus housing and/or meal plan charge.

Once a housing contract is submitted through My College Roomie Housing, you will be automatically placed in roommate matching. You will be able to select up to three roommates through this software system. University Housing cannot guarantee all roommate requests, but will make all efforts to accommodate your request.

Once all room assignments are completed, they are posted online in your myUAH account in My College Roommie Housing. Fall assignments are typically posted by mid-June for first year students to allow the maximum amount of time for pairing roommates. Students on the waiting list will be provided an assignment as space becomes available.

If you would like to request a room change prior to moving in, please contact University Housing at If you would like to request a room change after moving in, please contact your resident director. University Housing allows room changes to occur, depending on room availability.

Housing contracts are effective for the entire academic year (fall and spring semesters). If you wish to terminate your contract early, you must start the housing contract appeal process. You are required to fulfill all terms of your contract unless you graduate, are academically dismissed, are no longer enrolled, or have an approved extenuating circumstance from the Housing Office. Financial difficulties are not a contractually approved justification to terminate your contract and must be approved by the Executive Director of Residential Living and Card Operations.

For your convenience, University Housing splits your housing costs into a fall and spring semester payment. You may also choose to participate in a deferred payment plan that offers payment installments through the Bursar’s Office located in the Student Services Building.

Your room rate covers the cost of your room for the entire academic year and includes Xfinity On Campus, Internet service, 24-hour security and all maintenance and utilities (electricity, water, gas, trash removal, everything!). All services are "wrapped" into one cost that is posted on your student account.

Yes. Financial aid typically is applied to all charges on your student account, including housing. Any remaining balance is to be paid by you or your parent or guardian. Visit Financial Aid for more details.

When compared with off-campus rental apartments or houses, on-campus living is often less expensive and more convenient. On-campus living fees include the cost of all utilities, Xfinity On Campus, Internet service, phone and 24-hour security; no deposit, connection, service, or termination fees are required. And, you receive only one bill for all services. Additionally, on-campus students don't have the hassle of subletting or paying needless rent for an empty apartment or house during the summer.

The top three reasons current residents stated they planned to return to campus housing were to be close to classes, convenience, and affordability.
