Once accepted to UA, submit your Intent to Enroll form and pay the confirmation fee by May 1, if you haven't already. It'll take about 7 business days for New Student Orientation to process the payment.



About three days after the confirmation fee is processed, login to My Akron and look for the Manage Housing icon on the left. The freshman housing priority deadline is May 15!

You'll be asked to list your preferred residence halls. Find your fit! If you want to live with a friend, have their UANet ID number ready.

You'll also be asked what meal plan you'd like - you can check those out here.

Once you submit the application fully, you'll get a confirmation letter in the mail saying when you can self-select your hall, floor, and bed space. See the timetable.

If you apply for housing late, or choose not to pick a space, the system will place you automatically after May 31, taking into consideration your preferred hall, a roommate if you specified one, and the answers to your questionnaire.

Living Learning/Emerging Leader students will be sent separate instructions for the selection process. Confirmation of your room and meal plan assignment will be sent through UA Email in late June.



Current UA students may begin applying for 2018/2019 housing through My Akron on Monday, Feb. 5, 2018, at Noon. Students who complete their housing application no later than Feb. 18 will be invited to participate in our returning student priority room selection. That means you get first dibs on available bed spaces!
