Returning Student Housing Application Processes

Fall Room Reservation Process

Students planning to return to NYC housing for the next academic year must participate in the Room Reservation Process (held each spring) to reserve a room.  Returning students who do not complete the fall housing applicaiton by May 1 will not be guaranteed housing for the fall semester (student applying after that date will be waitlisted, and moved to guaranteed housing as soon as possible).

Follow the guide below for the necessary steps to obtain housing. Details for all steps can be found by clicking on the links below. Be sure to read carefully and complete all necessary steps. 

IMPORTANT: You must submit your deposit through the MyHousing portal. Submitting a deposit through any other method online will not allow you to complete an application. After logging on, the application is located in a "drop down" menu at the top of the screen, under "applications and forms".

Spring Housing for Returning Students

Returning students who wish to apply for spring housing, may do so by logging in to their "MyHousing" account.  The fall housing application can be found under "Applications and Forms" in the top menu bar of MyHousing.  If you do not see a Spring Housing Application there for the campus of your choice, please contact the housingoperations at

Housing is a limited resource at Pace. We accept applications on an ongoing basis, and make housing assignments according to availability. There is no “guaranteed” housing date for students applying for spring housing, and there is no specific due date. We continue accepting applications right through the start of the spring semester. All students applying for spring housing are placed in housing on a “space available” basis. We will notify spring applicants in early December if they will be guaranteed housing.

The housing application requires both a $100 Damage Deposit (refundable upon the conclusion of the student's final semester in university housing, less any damage charges) and a $400 pre-payment (non-refundable, credited toward the first semester's rent).
