Housing Renewals

Love living at UCCS? We would be delighted to have you back on campus next year! Beginning this year, current residents DO need to submit a new housing application via the online housing portal.  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 Period?

Renewals 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 2022-May 2023).  You have the option of either choosing to stay exactly where you are currently assigned or selecting a new room. This includes residents in first-year housing who would like to live in the apartments next year. 

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 either Monday, February 28th or Tuesday, March 1st 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 a few days before the event. 

Renewal Period: March 3 - March 11

The housing application will open to current residents on March 1st. 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. Just remember that you will not see the room selection page within the application until your lottery time.

The renewal period is separated out and based on your seniority. If you want to have the same room next year as you have this year, you can select your same room between March 3-4. You will be assigned a lottery time based on your status as outlined below.

If you want to select a new room for next year, the renewal timeline is broken down as follows:

  1. Students with 60+ earned credit hours as of the end of Fall 2021 can select a new room space on March 7.
  2. Students with 30+ credit hours as of the end of Fall 2021 can select a new room space on March 8.
  3. All other returning residents can select a new room from March 9-11.

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 16-30.

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. 

*Please note: credit hours are based on completion at the end of Fall '21 semester
