Housing for Returning Students

Housing selection is an online process in which returning La Roche University students select their housing assignment for the upcoming academic year.

The housing selection process for the 2024-25 academic year is now closed. Dates for the following year will be posted in February 2025. 


Below is the housing selection process returning students follow to secure housing and a roommate(s) of their choice.

Step One: Determine Interest for Living On Campus

Students identify if living on campus is what they intend to do for the following year. A housing contract is legally binding for a full academic year, both fall and spring semesters. The only exception to this policy is for December graduates.

Step Two: Pay $100 Housing Deposit 

Once students decide they want to live on campus, they submit a nonrefundable $100 housing deposit online.

Step Three: Apply for Housing

Wait 24-48 business hours and log in to the Housing Portal using your La Roche University username and password credentials.

Apply for housing using the Housing Contract & Application. This allows
you to select your meal plan and provide emergency contact information.

Step Four: Access Your Lottery Number

Student lottery numbers will be available to view on the Housing Portal. Only students who have made a deposit will receive a lottery number.

Step Five: Formulate a Roommate Group

Students will log onto the Housing Portal to request their desired roommates. Students must request everyone they want to live with, and all desired roommates must mutually accept these requests. The group will not be able to move forward in the process if everyone has not accepted one another.

Step Six: Select a Housing Assignment

Students will select their housing assignment based on room availability at the time assigned to the individual with the lowest lottery number (the lowest number is one). If forming a group, the individual with the lowest lottery number is the only student who will log in to select the housing assignment for students in the group.

Please note: Five and six person suites must be filled at the time of selection. No incomplete five or six person suites will be eligible to be selected. Please consider at least three housing options, in case your first choice is not available at the time of selection.
