Return to Campus Living Starts Jan. 22

Article Date

Current residents interested in participating in RTCL will need to submit a housing application between Jan. 22 and Jan. 26. Residents who submit an application by noon on Jan. 26 will be issued a lottery number on Jan. 26 with instructions for how/when to log back into the Online Housing System to try to select a space. Learn more about RTCL here

As with previous years, we have set aside space specifically for those interested in returning to on-campus living for the 2024-25 academic year, but please know that space will be limited and a lottery number does not guarantee a housing assignment. Our goal is to provide returning residents with an opportunity to live on campus while meeting the increased housing need for first-year students.

NOTE: If you’re currently living on campus and prefer to live on campus in 2024-2025, you should participate in RTCL in January to have the first and best opportunity to secure a housing assignment for next year. If you do not participate in RTCL, please know you may not be able to live on campus next year, as space is limited and provided on a first come, first served basis. 

It’s easy to participate in RTCL. All you have to do is:

  1. Apply. In order to apply, you must complete Part 1 of the RTCL Housing Application. The application opens Jan. 22, at 9 a.m. The deadline to submit an application in order to receive a lottery number is 12 p.m. on Jan. 26. (NOTE: we will close the RTCL housing application before Jan. 26 if the number of applications exceeds the number of available spaces.)
  2. Claim Your Space. Select your space during Open Room Selection, which will begin on Jan. 29 for residents with a lottery number. This step is considered Part 2 of the RTCL Housing Application.
