Housing Reapplication

Room Selection for Returning Residents

All returning residents who complete Reapplication February 2- 23 will be able to participate in room selection as outlined below. 

Residential Commons

Each residential commons will hold their room selection process between March 23 and April 3. Dates and times will vary in each community, and the details will be posted here on March 6th. Room selection is held "in person" in the community. Most residents return to their same residential commons for the next year. Opportunities for changing/transferring to a different residential commons are very limited, and is on an application, space available basis.

Upperclass Communities

  • Residents who are approved for room selection in Moore and Daniel will select rooms on-line March 16-20. Instructions will be provided March 6th.
  • Residents of the SMU Service House will work with the Residential Community Director directly regarding room selection.

Graduate Communities

On February 9th, residents in Martin and Hawk will receive information about reapplying for housing and reserving their apartment for the 2015-16 year, as well as information regarding summer occupancy.
