How to Apply for Housing
***Special Note*** Thank you for your interest in on-campus housing. The demand for male on-campus housing continues to increase. Rather than turn away prospective residents, The Office of Residence Life will maintain a waiting list for male students. You are welcome to pay your housing deposit and submit a housing application but please keep in mind that we cannot guarantee housing for males for the Fall 2014 semester. If we are unable to accommodate your request to live on campus we will refund your $250.00 housing deposit or move it to the Spring semester for priority placement. Please know that we are doing our very best in trying to accommodate you. If you have additional questions please feel free to contact our office at (203)392-5870 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to be placed into housing at Southern Connecticut State University, you must first pay the non-refundable $250 Housing Deposit and complete an Online Housing Application in Banner Web (please use the instructions below). In order to be considered for your first preference for residence hall and roommate, please submit both the deposit and application as soon as possible.
On-campus housing is not required nor is it guaranteed for students. Assignments are made in the order in which the University receives both the completed housing application and the $250 non-refundable housing deposit.
Upon submission of the housing application, you will have until May 31 to cancel your Academic Year Housing Agreement. The $250 deposit is non-refundable. Beginning June 1, the housing contract cannot be cancelled to reside off campus during the contract term and you are financially responsible for both the fall and spring semesters.

Please keep in mind you are financially bound to the terms and conditions of the housing contract for the entire academic year (fall and spring semester) and the housing contract cannot be cancelled to reside off campus during the contract term.
Note: All incoming First-Year and Transfer students must also pay the $200 Tuition Deposit at the time the housing deposit is paid.

ACADEMIC YEAR HOUSING AGREEMENT
Any student who requests housing for the fall semester (by paying a non-refundable housing deposit and submitting a housing application or participating in the room selection process) have until May 31st to cancel your request for housing to be released from the contract. After that date, a student can submit a Housing Withdrawal Form, which will be reviewed by a committee to determine whether the student meets the criteria to be released from the contact. If a student is not released from their contract, the student will remain assigned to housing for the academic year and all housing charges will apply.
