Housing Selection

New Freshmen, Transfer, and Readmitted Student Application Process

Spring 2015 residential new freshmen, transfer and readmitted students must complete a housing and meal plan application through the student housing gateway.  Each new student will have the opportunity to select a meal plan, submit building preferences, and complete the roommate matching survey through the student housing gateway.  All housing and meal plan applications must be completed by December 5, 2014.  New students may begin to submit housing and meal applications on November 10, 2014 through the student housing gateway.  Residential and Commuter Life will attempt to honor each student's housing preferences, but it is not possible for every student to receive his/her preferred building preference.  RCL will notify students regarding their housing assignment by December 10, 2014 through the student's Longwood email account.

Is Longwood managed housing guaranteed for new freshmen students?

Yes.  New freshmen are required to live in a main campus residence hall unless the student will commute from home within the 8 surrounding counties.  In the event that the number of new freshmen exceeds the total number of available bed spaces, RCL will create transitional housing spaces for new freshmen.  For more detailed information regarding transitional housing, click the link below.

Is Longwood managed housing guaranteed for Transfer and Readmitted students?

RCL will make every attempt to house as many students as possible.  It is possible that RCL will not have enough bed spaces available to provide housing to all transfer and readmitted students.  Those students that are interested in being admitted as a residential student and live in Longwood managed housing are encouraged to apply early for admission to Longwood. 


 Where do Summer School students live?
