Application and Contract Information
  • Application Procedure: What You Need to Know

    Apply Early

    On-campus housing is limited, so we encourage you to apply early to optimize your chances of being offered a space. Housing offers and contracts are prioritized by the date the application and application fee are submitted to our office. Applicants submitting an application after the Priority Consideration date of March 15 are more likely to be waitlisted.  Acceptance of your application does not guarantee that a space will be available.

    How to Apply

    • The housing application is separate from the application for admission to the university and can be filled out by clicking on the "Apply for Housing" button above.
    • It's important to complete the online housing application using a computer. Applicants will experience difficulties and will receive an error when they attempt to use mobile devices during this process as there are too many redirects. 
    • Currently, we are accepting applications from students who have been admitted to IUPUI.  
    • A non-refundable $50 housing application fee is required before your application will be considered.
    • For academic year applications, you can update community preferences, add an RBLC preference, or Gender-Inclusive Living preference by logging in to the Housing Service Center.
    • We make every effort to accommodate your requests for specific facilities or room type; however, due to high demand for housing, this cannot be guaranteed.
  • Important Dates
