Apply for Housing: New Students
New students who have been admitted to the University are eligible to apply for housing on-line via CaneLink under the "UM Housing" section. To activate access to the housing application link, admitted students must pay the $500 enrollment deposit to verify their admission acceptance.

Students admitted for fall entrance should apply for housing prior to May 1st to receive a priority housing assignment. Housing applications received after this date are accepted on a space-available basis. Students admitted for spring semester can apply for housing after the $500 enrollment deposit is paid and will be accepted on a space available basis. The spring only housing application is typically available in CaneLink beginning in late October.

Applying early will determine in part a student's future priority to access single rooms, be considered for room changes, and having earlier room selection appointment times. New freshman not living with their parents will be required to live on campus, as long as space is available.
