Returning Students

Room Reservation for the 2022–2023 Academic Year

For current students – residential, commuter, or online (not new students to Pace University for Fall 2022), reserving a room for Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.

Students planning to return to housing for the next academic year must participate in the Room Reservation process to reserve a room. Returning students who do not participate in this process by May 1 will not be guaranteed housing for the fall semester (and will be wait-listed for fall housing). All of this information will also be emailed to current residents at their Pace University email address.

How to Reserve a Room

  • The Fall Room Reservation Application is available starting March 1, 2022, at MyHousing. In the application, students will be able to provide information about themselves and pay the $400 housing deposit, which is a prepayment to the fall housing charge.

    To complete the online deposit and application, follow these steps

    • Log into MyHousing
    • Click the Applications and Forms tab at the top of the page
    • Click on the Fall Room Reservation Application, and complete the form.

    If you cannot see the form

    • it may mean that you have a financial hold on your student account which is preventing you from reserving a room for the fall. If you are in the process of resolving this hold or have resolved this hold, please email housingoperations@pace.edu.
    • you might be a current online or commuter student. Please email housingoperations@pace.edu to be given access to the Fall Room Reservation Application.

    Other Information

    • Students will not be assigned an Online Room Selection Time until all online applications have been submitted. The deadline for completing the online application and deposit to participate in online room selection is March 31 at 11:59 p.m.
    • Students who have an approved housing accommodation through Student Accessibility Services will be emailed with more information about how they will be assigned a space after March 31.
    • Students who would like to be roommates, suitemates, or housemates must have a completed application and must request and confirm their roommate match at MyHousing under Roommates/Suitemates.
    • To be guaranteed fall housing, students must complete the Fall Room Reservation Application by May 1, 2022. After May 1, 2022, students who complete an application will be placed on a waitlist and assigned on a space-available basis.
    • If you do not select a room through the Online Room Selection or if you apply after the Online Room Selection is over, but before May 1, 2022, you will be assigned to a space in Housing in July. You are guaranteed fall housing and you will be placed by the Housing staff.

    Room Selection Number

    The Room Selection Number is utilized to help determine the date and time a returning student can select their room assignment for the fall returning student room selection process. The person with the highest Room Selection Number and a completed Fall Room Reservation Application by March 31, 2022, will get to select their fall housing assignment first.

    The Room Selection Number is composed of the following:

    • Student’s Credits Completed
    • Students Cumulative Grade Point Average

    These two values are multiplied and the number that results is the Room Selection Number.

    Housing Deposit Waiver

    We understand that some students may not be able to pay the $400 housing deposit at this time. If this is the case, please email housingoperations@pace.edu and explain why you need a deposit waiver. University Housing Operations will follow up with you from there.

Things to Keep in Mind

  • We have an All-Gender Housing Process. Those students who would like to live in an All-Gender Room, must match up as roommates/suitemates/housemates in MyHousing and then will be able to select their room assignment through the Room Selection Process.
  • During the room selection process, you will only be able to see spaces where your roommate group can fill the space. If you are an individual who wants to select a space, you will be able to do so on April 19.
  • If you are hired as a Resident Assistant, you will still need to complete the Fall Room Reservation Application. After you are placed by Residential Life into your fall room assignment, you will be assigned to that space and your student account will be updated with the appropriate charges.
  • If you complete the Fall Room Reservation Application, you are guaranteed a housing assignment for the fall. If you decide later, you do not want to be assigned a space, you must complete the Housing Cancellation Form at MyHousing. After June 1, there are penalties for canceling fall housing.
