Affordable Housing Application Process

The Applicant is expected to have reviewed the Affordable Housing eligibility criteria and collected the required documentation before applying to Campus Living.

Eligible applicants must create a “Family Housing” application on the StarRez Portal for each year they wish to live in residence. Each Application costs $50 to start.

Campus Living will send an email requesting the required documentation. If the documentation is approved, new applicants pay a $350 deposit to accept the offer and reserve the room. Continuing applicants may complete the application without submitting a new deposit.
