What is Temporary Housing?

Temporary Housing is a temporary housing configuration of 4-6 students within one lounge. Residential Life's goal is to move students to regular occupancy spaces as quickly as possible.

Where is Temporary Housing?

Temporary Housing will be hosted in Newing and Hinman. Students in Temporary Housing will be assigned permanent housing across all residential communities on campus as space becomes available.

How long can I expect to live in Temporary Housing?

Students in Temporary Housing spaces are our highest priority and we actively work to relocate them as quickly as possible. As space becomes available across campus, students will receive a permanent housing assignment.

What can I expect my Temporary Housing space to look like?

Temporary Housing spaces are lounges that are set up with beds, desks, dressers and wardrobes for 4-6 residents. Lounges used for Temporary Housing will be locked and private just like any other room; only residents of those rooms will have access. Students assigned to Temporary Housing will have access to building amenities such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry facilities, dining halls, and academic success centers.

Tips for students living in Temporary Housing

  • Remember that these are not permanent housing assignments. When you come to campus, bring the essentials. You will be given a permanent housing assignment and relocated once space becomes available.
  • Students do not need to get on a wait list to be moved out of Temporary Housing; simply wait to be contacted by Residential Life when you are given your permanent housing assignment.
  • Please keep an open mind and have fun. Living in a group environment gives you the opportunity to learn about other people interactively and face-to-face. It’s the best part of university living and learning.

Will students in Temporary Housing receive a housing discount?

At the end of the spring semester, Residential Life will adjust students’ housing charges based on how long the student was housed in Temporary Housing.

Estimated Credit Per Night:
