Housing Application

Contract and Application 2022-2023

To live in University Housing, all students must sign a contract by completing our online housing application.

New applicants (students who have not completed a housing contract previously) will be asked to pay a non-refundable $35.00 fee. This fee covers the cost of a background check and application processing for each applicant. This is a one-time fee, so returning students who have previously lived with us do not have to pay this fee again.

All students must make a $250 prepayment. Failure to make the prepayment by the deadlines below may result in loss of room and/or contract.  Prepayments will be released to the student’s bill as a credit at the end of summer/beginning of fall term. All students must make the $250 prepayment before the roommate/room selection portion is accessible in the housing portal.

Communication from our office is sent to student’s YSU email.  Please be sure to have your YSU email account set up and check it daily.

NEW CONTRACTS/APPLICANTS

If you are a new applicant, you will need your YSU email and password to login to the application/contract portal. Please be sure to have this on-hand before you are ready to start the application. If you need assistance with your YSU email/password please reach out to IT at 330.941.1595.
 
Depending on your application date, you will have the opportunity to complete a roommate profile as part of your application. Roommate profiles will be visible to other new applicants, and you can utilize the portal to communicate with one another to find a roommate match. Once you’ve found a potential roommate, the group leader will then be able to select the room for the group.
 
All students must make the $250 prepayment before the roommate/room selection portion is accessible in the housing portal.

Applicants must have a roommate group to fill a room.  If you do not have a roommate, you will be assigned a room and roommate over the summer.  Any partially filled rooms, may be assigned a roommate OR moved to a room where there is another vacancy.

If you apply after May 13th, you will be assigned a room/roommate based on the information you provided in your application.  No room or roommate will be assigned until you make the $250 prepayment*.
