Returning Room Signup Process

Returning Student Sign Up Process

It's the time of year to be thinking about 2014–15 housing plans. In order to be eligible for on-campus housing, students must complete a housing contract and pay a $105 non-refundable housing contract fee five business days prior to their expected sign up or pull in time. Please be aware that housing contracts will only be accepted from returning students as space permits; in order to be guaranteed housing for the 2014-15 academic year, please complete a housing contract as soon as possible.*

For assistance please click on one of the following links: How to contract:
  1. Go to mySeaport beginning on Jan. 27, 2014.
  2. Click “Contract and Payment” link
  3. Complete process

*If unable to complete the housing contract online, please come into the Office of Housing and Residence Life, and fill out a contract, and make the payment in person.

Room selection will begin at 10 a.m. on the first day listed and remain open until 4:30 p.m. on the last day listed. For example, if you're selecting your room during Stage 1, the process will open at 10 a.m. on Feb. 5 and will remain open until 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 6. If you need help completing the process, please come to the Office of Housing and Residence Life.
