Step 1: activate your Auburn email to receive your housing application timeslot

Students will receive a timeslot to apply for housing once they have been accepted to the university. Timeslots will be sent to students’ Auburn email account and are randomly assigned to accepted students. Timeslots are generated via a lottery system and randomly assigned after each admissions acceptance round. Students can reference the important dates and deadlines chart for when to expect their timeslot email.

Step 1: apply for housing during your housing application timeslot

Students are able to log into their housing student portal to apply for housing during their assigned housing application timeslot. Students are able to add housing preferences and roommate selection to their housing application. A $100 nonrefundable housing application fee will be due in order to submit your housing application. Once complete, students will receive a confirmation email to their Auburn email account.

Students are able to update housing preferences and roommate selection on their housing application until their timeslot for room selection (additional information on room selection is listed in step 3). Any updates made to the application after a student has selected a bed will not be considered.

Step 3: select your room

Students are able to log into their housing student portal to select their room during their room selection timeslot. Room selection timeslots are assigned to students based off their housing application submission date. Students are able to select a bed space for mutually requested roommates during the room selection process. Please note: students that apply for housing after room selection closes will be manually assigned.

Students are able to log back in to the housing student portal to view their room assignment and roommate information. Suitemate information is not provided.

Please Note: Students must pay the $250 admissions enrollment deposit before participating in room selection. It may take up to 48 business hours once payment is made to access the room selection process.

Step 4: pay your assignment confirmation prepayment

Students are required to pay a $200 nonrefundable assignment confirmation prepayment. This fee will go back on the student account in July in the form of a prepayment if the student is enrolled and living in on-campus housing.. Students are able to make this payment at the time they select their room but must make the payment on or before May 1, 2022, to avoid being dropped from their housing assignment.

Students assigned after May 1 will not be required to make this payment.
