Housing Assignment Process

New Students

Fall Semester

If you have paid your tuition deposit, completed a housing application, and paid your housing fee, we can place you in campus housing. Please make sure you tell us about any specific roommate or location requests on the housing application. Assignments will be sent out mid-July for everyone who has deposited by July 1.

Students who complete the housing application and/or pay their deposit(s) after July 1 will be assigned on a rolling basis as new applications come in and space is available.

Spring Semester

New students entering campus housing for spring semester will receive a housing assignment prior to the start of the semester once the tuition deposit, housing deposit, and completed housing application have been received.


Current Students

Students who live in campus housing will have the opportunity to select their housing assignment for the next semester prior to the end of the current semester. Specific dates and times will be communicated through Truett-McConnell e-mail, as well as by your Resident Director and Resident Assistants.

Students who currently commute to Truett-McConnell and wish to secure a space in on-campus housing should complete a housing application and pay the housing deposit to the Admissions office. These students will be assigned housing through the same process as new students.
