Room Selection

For CEaL Students

We are excited to have new Chanticleers apply for housing in 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 Eaglin 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-336) policy in detail, go to: www.coastal.edu/policies/.

Priority Deadline: Friday, May 15

New students who complete their application by May 15 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 your application? You will receive an email to your CCU email upon completion in addition to the notification within the housing application. As long as the application is completed by May 15 you will have first priority of available spaces.  Students who apply after May 15 will select a space starting on May 27.

Phase 1: Application & Roommate Search (Opens February 3)

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 $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. Please be aware by being part of a roommate group, you are granting members of your roommate group to select your space. 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 select your space, you will need to complete the housing application by the priority deadline, May 15 . You know you have completed the application when you receive an email to your CCU email address. Completing the housing application still allows you access to make changes to your application (e.g. change meal plan, search for roommates, etc.).

Phase 2: Space Selection (Starts May 27)

The space selection phase of the room selection process allows you to select your space. Completing the housing application still allows you access to make changes to your application (e.g. change meal plan, search for roommates, etc.). Only students who complete the application by May 15 will receive a timeslot for room selection.
