Announcing the 2022-2023 Senior and Junior Housing Selection Process
The Office of Residential Life is excited to announce the Junior and Senior Housing Selection Process for the 2022-2023 academic year. We are pleased to share that in most recent years, we have been able to provide university-owned housing to EVERY Junior and Senior who participated in our fall selection process. PLEASE NOTE THAT SOPHOMORE HOUSING SELECTION (FOR CURRENT FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS) WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE SPRING SEMESTER.
A personalized invitation will be sent to current sophomore and junior students in the next few days.
To participate, students simply sign the Housing Contract and pay the Housing Reservation Fee ($500). As students know, living in university-owned housing affords them opportunities to live close to their friends, close to their classes, participation in study groups, and easy access to programs/activities and 24-hour support from Residential Life and Public Safety staff. By living in QU housing, students do not have to deal with unfamiliar landlords, 12-month rental contracts, and the hassle of separate monthly utility bills. And there is more - resident students are more likely to be involved on campus, have more contact with faculty, are more likely to graduate on time, and report greater satisfaction regarding their overall college experience.
To Sign-Up for Fall 2022-2023 Housing, Students Complete the Following Steps:
Agree to the Fall 2022/ Spring 2023 Housing Contract. Please note the contract is for the full academic year.
Pay a $500 Housing Reservation Fee (formerly the housing deposit).
