Room Selection 2022-2023

For New Students

We are excited to have new Chanticleers apply for housing in MyCoastalHome. New students have the opportunity to select a space in the following communities: Eaglin, Ingle, The Woods, Chanticleer, DeCenzo (formerly Teal), Singleton-Young, and Tradition. You will be able to select your space online. We will send you reminders throughout the process, so make sure you check your CCU email often.

First- and second-year students are required to live in University Housing (unless approved by University Housing for exemption or have an automatic 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-336) policy in detail, go to:

New students who complete their application by May 22 will be issued time slots first. We do not use application completion date to prioritize students, so there is no rush to complete your application. How do you know you have completed the application? You will receive an email to your CCU email upon completion in addition to the notification in the application. As long as the application is complete by May 22 you will have first priority of available spaces.  Students who apply after May 22 will select a space starting on June 9.

Apply for Special Interest Housing

University Housing partners with several departments to offer living communities based on interest or major. Students interested in Special Interest Housing, which include the TEACH Community, SEA Floor and Wall $treet Business, should complete the application and the Special Interest Housing questions by April 14 for full consideration. Students who apply after April 14 will be considered as spaces remain available. Please be aware being accepted into a Special Interest Housing community will override your roommate requests unless your requested roommate(s) were also accepted to the same community.

Application & Roommate Search (Starts February 1)

The application and roommate search phase includes verifying your student information, reviewing and acknowledging understanding of the housing license agreement, making the non-refundable housing application and prepayment (a combined $200), answer lifestyle questions, selecting your meal plan and, if you’re interested, applying for Special Interest Housing.

In addition you and your peers are allowed to search for roommates and accept roommate request invitations. MyCoastalHome will allow you to review other students’ profiles (created by answering the lifestyle questions) and communicate with potential roommates to determine compatibility before inviting them to be in your roommate group. Please be aware by joining a roommate group and being accepted into one, you are granting members of your roommate group to select your space. You will need to know their “Screen Name”, which is the part of the CCU email address before the @ symbol, to request them to join your group. Roommate groups should be finalized PRIOR TO time slot notification, so you can select rooms for your entire roommate group. Only roommate requests that are mutual will be considered.

In order to be among the first to select their room, complete the housing application by the priority deadline, May 22. You will receive an email to your CCU email address when it is completed.

Room Selection (Starts in June)

The room selection phase allows you to select your room. Only students who complete the application by May 22 will receive a timeslot for priority room selection, June 2-8. Those students who complete the application after May 22 will be eligible to select a space starting on June 9.
