Room Selection

Starting Fall 2017 all students applying for housing will select their space online

Please make sure you read through the information carefully to understand the process. Missing a deadline date or a step may affect your room selection.

As a reminder, first- and second-year students are required to live in University Housing (unless approved by University Housing for exemption). Students who do not apply for housing and are required to live on campus will be randomly assigned and billed for a space. To review the Housing and Meal Plan Requirement (STUD-CLSE-336) policy in detail, go to:

2017-2018 Room Selection Timeline

  • Now - Room Selection Open at MyCoastalHome; No Time Slot Needed

Room Selection

Room Selection for new, current, transfer and graduate students is open at MyCoastalHome. As you complete the steps of the housing application, you will be eligible to select your space, select your meal plan and submit your application. Submitting your application does not stop you from changing your meal plan or assignment during the designated periods above.

Room Changes

Once you have a housing assignment, you are eligible to change your assignment until Monday, July 31. To do so, go back to your housing application and click on the Room Selection step. You will see a tab called Room Swap. Room Swap allows you to search for available spaces and change your assignment. Please note you are only able to change your assignment and not the assignment of any preferred roommate(s). If your preferred roommate wants to change too, he or she will need to follow the same process.
