Important Housing Dates, Policies and Forms

Housing Dates

  • Fall 2024 Guaranteed Housing Deadline

    May 1 is the deadline for NEW students to deposit for housing in order to be guaranteed housing for the fall.

    April 15 is the deadline for RETURNING students to deposit for housing in order to be guaranteed housing for the fall.

    While students are initially guaranteed housing for meeting these deposit deadlines, they must also meet additional deadlines in order to maintain their guaranteed housing status, to receive (or maintain) their room assignment, and to be eligible to select a move in appointment. These include:

    • Application Deadline
      • NEW STUDENTS - June 1
    • Housing Agreement Deadline
      • ALL STUDENTS - July 1
    • Pre-Arrival form and Insurance Form Deadline
      • ALL STUDENTS - August 1

    Summer Communications

    Throughout the summer we will send information to new students about once each month. We will generally contact returning students only twice during the course of the summer. Please watch for these communications, and be sure to follow any directions provided, as each step will be necessary for moving in to the residence halls.

    Move in appointment selection

    Starting in early August, students who are assigned to a room in on campus housing, and who have completed all required online forms, and who have been cleared by the Student Accounts office to move in to the residence halls, will be able to begin selecting move in appointments.

    Move In

    Student Move-In (students must pre-register for a move in time; refer to email communications sent by the Housing Office in early August)

    All students must select a move-in appointment before they may move in. Please visit the Residence Hall Move-In Plan for details regarding which days students may plan to move in.

    Spring 2024 housing cancellation deadline

Residence Hall Insurance

While all cases of property loss and theft are dealt with in conjunction with our Office of Safety and Security, the University is not responsible for, and will not cover the replacement cost for items that are lost, damaged or stolen. A homeowner’s insurance policy, if available, may provide some coverage for a student’s personal property while away at university. Stand-alone renter’s or “dorm” insurance may provide more comprehensive coverage. This article by Consumer Reports provides an informative discussion regarding the various insurance options. There are many companies offering this type of insurance. While Pace does not endorse or recommend any particular insurer’s policy, Consumer Reports identifies “Two companies in this field and A+ rated by the Better Business Bureau are Arthur J. Gallagher and National Student Services.” We strongly encourage all residents to get an insurance policy that will cover the property they keep in their residence hall room.
