Returning Students

Application & Priority


If you are a first-year student applying for second-year UD Housing for 2017-2018, the earliest you can go in to My Housing to self-select a housing space for 2017-2018 is during your self-selection time slot.

How early your time slot is depends first on your class year (regardless of credit count). First-year students will select after a group of upper-division students, but all first-year students who are guaranteed housing will select 2017-2018 housing in March.

Within your class year, you can increase your chances of getting the space you want by increasing your total number of Priority Points. HINT: See Early Bird Application below.

Students with the same class year and same number of Priority Points are then sorted by cumulative credit hours.

Finally, each student will be assigned a random lottery number.

Students who have applied for housing for 2017-2018 will receive an email in the Spring with a time slot.



October 3 - October 31, 2016

The Early Bird Guaranteed Housing Application Period for 2017-2018 will begin on October 3, 2016 and close on October 31, 2016.

Early Bird applicants will be credited Priority Points.

To complete the Early Bird application, you will log in to My Housing, sign the Student Housing Contract and pay your $200 prepayment (which will be credited toward next Fall semester's housing costs).

Look for further information about completing the next steps of your Housing Application during the Open Enrollment Period, February 1-28, 2017.


Priority Points play a strong role in how early a student will be able to log in to the My Housing Portal during Room Selection, and thus how likely they will be to get the room they want.

Students will be credited Priority Points for an Early Bird application, which is the surest way of getting Priority Points.




Students will remain within their class year, no matter how many Priority Points or credit hours they have accumulated.


In October, students can visit the Upper Division residence halls to see the various living options available to you for next year.

More information coming soon.

Open Houses


Students should review the Student Housing Contract for 2017-2018. Remember, the Student Housing Contract is a financially binding contract, similar to signing an off-campus lease.
