Need to Apply for Summer Housing?

Apartments

The University Apartments offers 1, 2 and 4 bedroom apartments for approximately 2,100 students and students with families who want the benefits of living on-campus but are looking for something different than traditional residence hall living for the summer. Apply for summer apartment living in the myHousing Portal. If you are a current resident in the Gardens or White Creek Apartments and need to extend your 9 1/2 month contract to a 12 month contract, log in to myHousing Portal to request this change.

Residence Halls

What does it mean to live on campus? Well, it’s a lot more than having a place to sleep. If you have not yet applied for Summer School or Gateway housing, login to the myHousing Portal to apply.
