Students select housing by class year. Each year juniors and seniors can choose to live in selected areas of their College House, may choose to renew or join an apartment in College Row, College Hill or a James Street Property (JSP), followed by the theme house application phase, then the general lottery for remaining rising juniors and seniors without housing. Students must fill their chosen apartment or unit with eligible students and will commit to a 12 month lease term with additional utilities. Residence hall and theme house options are a 9 month academic school year term and include utilities. There are special lease term considerations for those students who choose to study abroad.
Students choosing to live in an off campus apartment space at College Row, College Hill or a JSP portfolio property are now required to provide proof of renters insurance as part of their resident lease/occupancy agreement.
