Love living at UCCS? We would be delighted to have you back on campus next year! Current residents need to submit a new housing application via the online housing portal to secure housing for future terms. You DO NOT need to repay the fees again, just resubmit the online application. You will also be able to select your room space via the online application as well!
What is the Renewal and Room Selection Period?
Renewals and room selection are your opportunity to sign up for next year's housing. Current residents get priority in choosing their housing for the next academic year (August 2023 - May 2024). You have the option of either choosing to stay exactly where you are currently assigned (if eligible) or selecting a new room. This includes residents in first-year housing who would like to live in the apartments next year. Just a note that if you reside in a room suite that is not eligible for renewal, you would have already received an email from email@example.com letting you know.
Renewal How-To Session:
If you want to view the housing application and walk through the process before you apply for housing, you can do so on Tuesday, February 28th at 7 p.m. Ms. Angela Storck, Associate Director of Housing Operations and StarRez Portal Manager, will be hosting this online event and answering all of your questions about the online application. Keep an eye on your student email. The link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out as part of the weekly housing newsletter on Mondays.
ROOM RENEWAL PERIOD: MARCH 2-3
You may go online and complete the application prior to your renewal to get it out of the way, or you can choose to complete it when you go online to select your room space. You may access the application on these two days if it is your intention to book your current room again for next year.
NEW ROOM SELF-SELECTION: MARCH 6-10
The room self-selection period is separated out and based on your seniority. If you want the same room for next year as you have this year, you will need to sign on to the application during your lottery time slot and select your new room space. Your lottery time will be assigned based on your status as outlined below. Be sure you complete your housing application for Academic Year 23-24 by March 3rd at 5:00 p.m. so that you can receive your lottery time slot for room self-selection March 6-10.
If you want to select a new room for next year, the renewal timeline is broken down as follows:
- Students with 60+ earned credit hours as of the end of Fall 2022 can select a new room space on March 6.
- Students with 30-59 credit hours as of the end of Fall 2022 can select a new room space on March 7.
- All other returning residents can select a new room from March 8-10.
If you go through your room selection and decide you aren’t happy with the room you selected, you can opt to change your room between the dates of March 11-31.
Students who reside in the apartments are not required to have a meal plan. If you desire to request a meal plan for next year, you will be able to indicate this when you renew housing for an assignment in the apartments. Should you choose to stay in VAV or Summit, you will automatically receive an all-access meal plan included with your room rate.
*Please note: the credit hours are based on completion at the end of Fall '22 semester
