The housing contract for Fall 2021 – Spring 2022 will be available starting December 1 for newly accepted first time in college students who will start during Summer 2021 or Fall 2021. All newly accepted first time in college students should complete their housing contract by the May 1 priority deadline. Housing fills up quickly and space becomes extremely limited. Students may access the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 housing contract though the Housing Self Service portal. Housing assignments will be made during the summer. Assignments are emailed to the students FAU email account starting in June and are sent weekly.

Current spring 2021 residents may complete a Fall 2021 – Spring 2022 housing contract starting February 1 – 12 through the contract renewal process. The housing contract renewal process provides current residents with the priority to renew their housing contract and preference their room type.

New transfer students and current students who do not live on-campus during spring 2021 may complete a housing contract starting on February 15.

The contract date and course registration are a consideration in the housing assignment process.

Students applying for housing follow the steps below:

  1. Login to the Housing Self Service Portal with your username and password. (NOTE: You must have a FAUNetID and password.)
  2. Click on Housing Application and select the blue Apply button to start your application.
  3. Read through the terms and conditions of the contract before agreeing to it! Very important – the FAU Housing Agreement is a legally binding document. It is similar to a lease, so do not submit unless you read and agree to the terms stating that you want to live on campus. Print a copy of the contract for your own records.
  4. The next few web pages will be the Housing Contract questions page. Answer all Housing Contract questions as these answers are very important to us.
  5. You will select a meal plan if you are a first time to college student or preference a residence hall which requires a meal plan.
  6. A non-refundable administration fee of $100 is required for all first time applicants or students who had a break in their semester housing for an academic semester. (We accept all major credit cards and electronic check as payment.)
  7. You will receive an email confirmation sent to your FAU email when your housing contract is completed. Please check your FAU email for the confirmation email. If you do not receive an email confirmation your housing contract was not received and you should go back to the Housing portal to verify all steps were completed.

 

Important Tips for New Students:

  • Spaces are limited and fill up quickly, we encourage all students to apply early.
  • Housing placement for first year students is prioritized to students who are outside of 30 miles from campus and are required to reside on-campus. Students who are from within 30 miles of the Boca Raton campus will be assigned housing after all students who are not from a commutable distance have been assigned.
  • There are fewer single rooms, we cannot guarantee single rooms for everyone who makes the request. The earlier you apply, the better your chances will be to get your first preference room type.
  • The housing contract covers the term(s) that you applied for: Summer 2021, Fall 2021 – Spring 2022 academic year or Spring 2022 only semester; you are responsible for the term of the contract.
  • The housing contract covers the term(s) that you applied for: Summer 2021, Fall 2021 – Spring 2022 academic year or Spring 2022 only semester; you are responsible for the term of the contract.
  • Students living in residence halls are required to participate in the Campus Meal Plan Program. For information, please visit our Dining Services page.
  • If you plan to request special housing considerations based upon a disability or health concern, you must register with Student Accessibility Services (SAS). In order to register, you must submit an SAS Application for Support Services and appropriate documentation of your disability. You must have registered with SAS by May 1 for summer, June 1 for fall and November 1 for Spring.
  • First time in college students may request up to one roommate or suitemate for the academic year housing contract that starts in fall. The deadline for first time in college students to request a roommate is April 1. Requests are completed through the Roommate Request page of the Fall 2021 – Spring 2022 housing contract.
  • Spring residents who participate in the housing contract renewal process may preference roommates and suitemates during the priority housing contract renewal process.
  • Current students and transfer students not residing on-campus for the spring may preference roommates until April 1 for Fall 2021 – Spring 2022.
  • Roommate requests take priority over room type preferences (i.e. single room). We will take your roommate request into consideration over your room type preferences in order to be able to place you with your roommate(s).
  • Roommate matching is not guaranteed; however, we will make every attempt to match roommates that are mutually requested. The date your housing contract was completed is a consideration when matching roommates.
