Housing & Dining Services Agreement

The Housing and Dining Services Agreement will be signed prior to room selection and is an agreement between the Housing & Residence Life Office and the student. If the student decides they will not live on campus for the upcoming year after May 1- there will a $500 fee assessed to the student bill if the student is let out of the Agreement

Roommate Assignment

Recognizing that technology plays a crucial role in today’s student's life, much of  the housing process is done online. Once a student places their deposit, on May 1 they will receive via email a Roommate Preference Form. We ask the student complete this questionnaire online and submit to Residence Life to match students. Towards the end of July first-years will receive their housing placement via email.

Sophomore Year and Beyond

After a student's first-year, housing selection is done by the student. In early January housing information is posted on social media, in the halls and distributed to students via campus email. Students must submit a $200 deposit to Student accounts by the set deadline in order to participate in the traditional room selection. Students who have deposited will receive an email with a lottery number and the best lottery number (lowest) will be the winner. Using the best lottery number, all groups will be assigned a ‘pick number’ in which students are able to pick an apartment on room selection night after they have arranged themselves in apartment groups of four or apply to live through Daemen at Collegiate Village.
