One of the most exciting parts about going to college is living on campus. Here's what you need to do.


The housing application for the 2021-22 academic year will open on Jan. 23, 2021, at 9 a.m. in My Akron. Students will not be selecting their residence hall room until April, however, and the order in which students will have access to select their room will be based contract complete date.

Therefore, the earlier they complete their housing contract and pay the NON-REFUNDABLE $150 pre-payment, the greater chance they will have to be able to select the room/room type that is their first choice.

As always, current students will select a room before new students giving them first dibs on available spaces!
