How to apply

For Current Students 

Students living with us currently or already on a confirmed contract for the upcoming term awaiting move-in do not need to apply for future housing. Students will receive an offer to renew your stay with us by accepting another 1-term contract for the upcoming term in the same room. At that time, you’ll receive information about roommate requests and room availability in other buildings should you wish to renew your contract for a new room placement. Please refer to the schedule below to anticipate when you could receive your renewal offer from Campus Housing.

"The 'community' experience is something I really like about living in CLV-South. Sharing the place with 3 other roommates from different parts of the world has helped me understand different cultures and embrace diversity!"
