Yes, admission to UA does not include application for University housing. Students can submit housing applications on their My Housing Portal where they will also be able to find a timeline for the housing application process.

That depends on the residence hall you choose. See a list of residence hall rates.

Students whose applications are completed by the Priority Deadline will receive a date and time for room selection to their UA email addresses. Room selection is an online process in which a student will be able to select their residence hall room for themselves and any roommate groups made in My College Roomie.

Please log into your My Housing Portal to see the full housing process timeline.

You will see the My Housing icon the following business day after you've submitted your Intent to Enroll form and confirmation fee. If you are having trouble logging into My Akron, contact the Help Desk at 330-972-6888.

You can request to be released from your housing application/contract by completing the cancellation petition in My Housing in My Akron.

First year students, new transfer students, and new graduate students have until May 15th to cancel their application/contract without penalty. Returning/continuing UA students forfeit the $150 prepayment at all times. After move-in all students are subject to the refund schedule if the cancellation/exemption petition is approved.

When accepted by the Department of Residence Life and Housing, the Housing Accommodations Contract is a binding agreement between the student and The University of Akron. (In the case of a minor student, the agreement is between his/her parents or guardian and the University.) This agreement provides for room according to the terms and conditions outlined on the contract. Be sure to read the contract carefully. Students are also completing a Meal Plan Contract.

The residence hall rates and meal plan rates are generally established each spring for the following academic year and represent the minimum amount of money needed to operate the residence halls and Dining Services. As a result, if you have signed a contract for any period, you will be held responsible for that period of the contract. The University will not release you from any of the contract conditions except as provided for in the University refund/release policy statement.
