Housing Application

Application

To apply to live in University Housing, please use our online housing application.

New applicants (students who have not completed a housing application previously) will be asked to pay a $35.00 fee to apply. This fee covers the cost of a background check 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.

New Applicants

If you are a new applicant, you will need your YSU ID to generate your PIN number, which is the first step in the housing application. Please be sure to have this on-hand before you are ready to start the application.

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 try and find a roommate match. Once you’ve found a potential roommate, you can connect with them in the portal, and then select a room together. The tutorial linked in the red box on this page will walk you through the roommate selection and room selection portions of the housing application.
