Occupancy Agreement Renewal

All occupancy agreements end on May 31, 2022. Current occupants who are eligible and wish to renew for the June 1, 2022 - May 31, 2023 housing period will be placed in priority groups to select and confirm their housing. The housing renewal process will be divided into two phases:

  • Phase 1: Application
  • Phase 2: Placement

Current occupants will have the following options to indicate their return-to-housing plans for next year:

  • Group 1: Stay in the same bedroom in the same apartment (this is the most common renewal method)
  • Group 2: Move to a different bedroom in the same apartment (bedroom will be in the same condition left by the previous occupant, "as-is")*
  • Group 3: Move to a different apartment*
  • Group 4: Move to Couples Housing (based on availability)*

Occupants are only able to choose one of the above methods. Selection times for group 2, group 3, and group 4 are generated randomly. 

*If you select a new apartment, it may not be available immediately on June 1, 2023 due to cleaning and turnaround logistics.

Phase 1: Application (February 1 - March 1)

February 1, 2023: Housing Application and Intent Process is available for students to reserve housing for 2022-2023 year or declare their intent to not renew. Additionally, applicants can search and request for potential suitemates. To access the housing application or the intent to not renew, please visit the CUIMC Housing Portal

March 1, 2023: Housing Application or Intent to Not Renew due from all student currently living on-campus.

Phase 2: Placement (March 21 - April 8)

March 21-March 25: Students renewing to the same bedroom in the same apartment confirm placement and e-signs agreement and paperwork (Group 1).

March 29-March 31: Students renewing to a different bedroom in the same apartment select placement and e-signs agreement and paperwork (Group 2).

April 5-April 8: Students renewing to a different apartment or couples housing, access times will be provided to students to select placement and e-signs agreement and paperwork (Group 3 & 4).

It is important to be mindful of the phase 2 selection windows so that you don’t miss the opportunity to renew to your same apartment or find a new apartment that may be a better fit. 

Suitemate Groups & Requests

Finding a compatible suitemate is key to creating a stress-free and enjoyable living environment. During the housing application, all applicants completed a suitemate profile.

After submitting your application and before selecting your housing, you are able to create a suitemate group to facilitate finding a compatible suitemate.

Below you will find available tools to assist with this process.

  • Create a Group: You are able to create a suitemate group and you can invite individuals to join your group.  This is used when you want to request specific people in your group.  A group leader will create a group name and share the name with the other members.  The other members will navigate to this page and click on "join group" and will enter the name of the group that was created by the group leader.   
  • Join a Group: If someone has invited you to join a group, you can add yourself to the group by inputting the name of the group. 
  • Suggest Suitemates by Match: You may want to see what potential suitemates are in the applicant pool based on matching to your profile questionnaire. 
  • Manage Requests: Any incoming or outgoing suitemate requests will show on this page at the bottom.  You are able to accept and decline them as necessary.    

Please note: forming a suitemate group does NOT guarantee availability to house the group together.
