For Returning Students

Reminder for current freshmen (class of 2020): When you entered UR, you signed a two year housing agreement. The College has determined that living on-campus is important to the successful development of UR students. Residential Life does not anticipate releasing freshmen from the sophomore year of the housing requirement. We will review limited requests that have supporting documentation for financial or medical accommodations.

To request a release for financial reasons, meet with someone from Financial Aid.
To request a release for medical reasons, follow the information provided here.

For all students (classes - 2020, 2019, & 2018): The 2017-2018 Room Selection Newspaper and Guidelines for Undergraduate Housing are now available for All Students!

Each resident at the University has the opportunity to select his or her room and roommate/suite-mates for the following academic year. Dates and times of room/suite/apartment tours, paperwork deadlines, and other information will be posted here:
