How do I sign up for an apartment?

Apartment sign-ups begin in February, and apply to the next fall semester. Each current apartment resident gets the opportunity to squat (or stay within their current assignment) on the first few days of sign-ups. The next few days are set aside for rising Seniors and Juniors.

Students who wish to move back to Longwood Managed properties after having been released to live off campus or who enrolled as a commuter student must wait until after all of our current residential students are housed before being considered to be housed within our facilities. Housing is not guaranteed for these commuter students.

Can I Change my Room?

A room assignment "freeze" is in effect until mid-September for any non-administrative room changes. (If applicable, students living in temporary or transitional assignments will be given priority.) Unauthorized room changes are not permitted. Students found to have made an illegal room change will be assessed a $75.00 fee and will face judicial action.

Residents desiring to make a room change should contact the REC of their assigned building. Failure to complete the room change process properly or to obtain the appropriate approval prior to the moving will result in an improper/illegal room change charge and/or disciplinary action. All non-administrative moves (personal choice moves) will be subject to a $50.00 processing fee.
