Below are the dates for reserving your room!


Individuals will be given the option to keep their current space before Room Reservation starts; this period is called "nesting". If you "nest" in your room, you have the opportunity to pull in a roommate (if your roommate is not also nesting). To do this, please print out the Nesting Pull-in Form, which needs to be signed by you and your new roommate.

Individuals can also fill a unit for Priority Unit Selection and get early access, regardless of class status! If you can fill a Carman 1 Bedroom & Den, Gunsaulus 2 Bedroom, John Rowe Village 6 bedroom, or John Rowe Village 3 Bedroom unit, fill out the Priority Unit Selection Form!
