Sophomore & Upper-Division Housing Application Instructions 2021-22

Housing Interest List

Non-required rising sophomores and upper-division students who are interested in living on-campus for the 2021-22 academic year (and did not complete Stage I by March 11, 2021) may be added to the Housing Interest List on the Housing Portal.

As of April 2021, only Tepeyac & Tacuba single and double-occupancy rooms are available.

Housing is admitting students off the interest list on a daily basis. To join the Housing Interest List, login to the Housing Portal and select “License Agreement” in the top navigation bar. Navigate through the pages for the Housing Interest List and click “Submit.”  The Office of Housing Administration will contact you as soon as space is available. 

Please note, the Housing Interest List is not a signed license agreement and does not guarantee on-campus housing.

If you are not interested in living in Tepeyac & Tacuba, we strongly recommend leasing with one of our off-campus affiliates listed below.
