Room Selection

For CEaL Students

We are excited to have new Chanticleers apply for housing at MyCoastalHome. When you move on campus, you will use MyCoastalHome often as it serves as you gateway to all things housing and meal plan at Coastal Carolina University. We will send you reminders throughout the process, so make sure you check your CCU email often.

You will have the opportunity to select a space in Ingle Hall which is where you will live for Summer II, Fall and Spring terms. You will be able to select your space online.

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:

Priority Deadline: Tuesday, May 1

New students who complete Phase 1 of their application by Tuesday, May 1 will be issued time slots first. We do not use application completion date to priortize students, so there is no rush to complete your application. How do you know you have completed Phase 1? You will receive an email to your CCU email upon completion of Phase 1. As long as Phase 1 is completed by May 1 you will have first priority of available spaces.  Students who apply after May 1 will select a space starting on May 30.

Phase 1: Application & Roommate Pairing (Opens February 1)

The application and roommate pairing 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 $150), answering lifestyle questions and selecting your meal plan.

In addition you and your peers are allowed to search for roommates, request to be someone’s roommate, 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 live with you. In order to request a roommate you will need to know their “Screen Name”, which is the part of the CCU email address before the @ symbol. It is important to have your roommate requests submitted and accepted prior to room selection, so you can look for a space for you and your roommates. Only roommate requests that are mutual will be considered.

In order to be eligible to participate in Phase 2 of the process, you will need to complete Phase 1 by the priority deadline, May 1. You know you have completed Phase 1 when you receive an email to your CCU email address.

Phase 2: Space Selection (Starts May 29)

The space selection phase of the room selection process allows you to select your space and submit your housing application. You will receive an automatically generated e-mail (using your address) when you have completed Phase 2 and the housing application. Completing the housing application still allows you access to make changes to your application (e.g. change meal plan, search for roommates, change assignment, etc.). Only students who complete Phase 1 of the application by May 1 will receive a timeslot for room selection.
