Housing is guaranteed to all full-time undergraduate students that submit a housing deposit by the appropriate deadline and complete a housing questionnaire available via the Online Housing Reservation System, available on MyArcadia. First-year students may be assigned to the following residence halls: Castle, Dilworth, Heinz, Kistler, Knight or Thomas. Transfer students with prior residential experience may be assigned to the aforementioned halls, Knight Hall, or apartment-style housing.
Room selection for returning students takes place late in the spring semester. Returning students who want to reside on campus for the following year must pay a deposit via the Online Housing Reservation System and are assigned a housing selection time based upon full-time semesters enrolled, semesters in residence and previous study abroad experience. This housing selection time designates when a student or group select their space via the Online Housing Portal.. Students that deposit after the deadline (usually in mid to late March) are placed on a wait list and housed as spaces become available throughout the spring and summer. Sometimes a student that has been assigned a space notifies us that he/she no longer needs housing, leaving an empty space. Residence and Commuter Life reserves the right to fill this space at any time.
