Campus Housing | Housing Selection Process

Housing Selection Process


The Fall 2017 housing selection process will begin Monday, March 20, 2017 and end Friday, April 14, 2017. The housing selection process is for Spring 2017 residents, who plan to return to housing for the Fall 2017 semester.  The housing selection process provides current residents with an opportunity to choose their housing assignment, choose their roommate (if applicable) and GUARANTEES them housing for the Fall 2017 semester. Students who do currently reside on campus and are interested in housing must complete a Campus Housing Application.

Fall 2017 Housing Selection Process 

The fall 2017 housing selection process is a three step online process. Placement will be determined based upon a students class status and the date in which they submit their online housing selection application.  In order to be eligible to participate in the housing selection process, students must complete the following:

  1. Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by April 1, 2017
  2. Register for classes for the Fall 2017 semester by April 14, 2017
  3. Complete Fall 2017 Housing Selection Application by April 14, 2017 ***Residents who successfully complete and submit the housing selection application, will automatically receive an email confirmation.  Residents who do not receive an email confirmation must email

Spring 2017 residents who do not participate in the housing selection process, but intend to return to housing for Fall 2017, will be required to reapply for housing.  These students must complete a new student housing application and will be placed into spaces that are available at the time of placement during the summer. Placements for non housing selection participants will be provided via their Trinity email on or about August 1, 2017.
