How to Apply for Housing

To request 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). On-campus housing is not required nor is it guaranteed for students. You will have an opportunity to select your housing assignment and roommate(s) online during your designated room selection session. 

Upon submission of the housing application, you will have until June 30 to cancel your Academic Year Housing Agreement. The $250 deposit is non-refundable. Beginning July 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.

Step 1 - $250 Housing Deposit

In order to be placed in Southern housing, all students must first pay the non-refundable $250 Housing Deposit. 

Please remember: 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 by participating in the room selection process) has until June 30th to cancel the housing request 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 contract. If a student is not released from the contract, the student will remain assigned to housing for the academic year and all housing charges will apply.
