Housing selection for the 2023-2024 academic year will begin on April 12 with students of senior class status. Students will need to login to eRezLife during their assigned time slot to choose housing.

Time slots for housing selection will be published on Monday, April 3. Students will be able to see available housing options one week prior to their assigned housing selection time slot. For example, a student with an assigned selection time of 7:00 p.m. on April 12 will be able to see housing options in eRezLife on April 2 at 7:00 p.m.

Students will only be able to see housing options that match the number of people in their roommate group. Students who have four people in their roommate group will only see housing options that include four beds (i.e., Brother Leopold, Residencia Santiago Miller, etc …). The person with the highest-class status will choose housing for the entire roommate group as long as all parties have accepted the invitation to the group. If a student does not have a green checkmark next to their name they have not accepted the invitation to the roommate group and therefore will not be housed with the group.

Only students who have completed their housing application and paid the $250 housing deposit will be allowed to choose housing. Deposits can be paid on your student portal or by contacting Cardinal Central.

Students with senior or junior class status will begin housing selection on April 12. Students with sophomore or freshmen (non-first year) class status will select housing on April 13. The first available time slot is 4:00 p.m. both days.

Students who apply for housing after the lottery is published on April 3 are considered late and will be placed in the last time slots on Friday, April 14. Students who do not select their housing during their time slot may select housing on April 14 as well. Any student who does not choose housing during the selection period will need to contact the Office of Residence Life to determine available housing options.
