Application and Contract

Fall 2020/Spring 2021 application and contract will be available on Monday, December 2, 2019.

IMPORTANT: A housing contract is for an academic year (fall and spring). If you cancel the contract, you may be subject to cancellation fees. Read the terms and conditions for more information. 

All official communication from USI Housing and Residence Life with prospective and current residents is via myUSI email accounts. Be sure to check your email account often for important messages!

Gender Inclusive Housing
Are you interested in gender inclusive housing? If so, you must opt into the gender inclusive option. To opt into gender inclusive housing, click the Housing icon under Eagle Apps in myUSI and look for the Gender Inclusive Opt-In link.

Please note that if you indicated your interest in gender inclusive housing when filling out your housing contract, that does not mean you have selected gender inclusive housing. You must opt into gender inclusive housing through myUSI, or you will not be eligible.

Do you have a roommate group and want to opt into gender inclusive housing? If you are in a roommate group and choose the gender inclusive option, all members in your roommate group must opt into the gender inclusive housing option as well. Students will not be randomly assigned to gender inclusive housing. Gender inclusive housing is optional, and students must choose a gender inclusive space during room selection.
