ID & Password
Before applying for Housing, you will need to set up your University of Idaho account online. Follow the steps through Vandal Setup
to get started.
Apply for Housing
It is quick and easy to apply for Housing through our online portal
. Once you have set up your NetID and password, you can log-on and fill out a simple application. Before selecting a room, we ask that you pay a $250 deposit that will be refunded at the end of the year if you have no damages to your room. After paying the deposit, you can view all open rooms in the residence halls and choose where you would like to live. Once you have confirmed your space, you can view information about your new roommate or suitemates. If you would like to room with a friend, simply sign up for Housing at the same time and search for open spaces together.
You can change your room choice through our online portal
until July 31st. Simply cancel your current room assignment and search for a new room in the residence halls. Please note that you can only search for rooms if you cancel your current assignment, which means your old room assignment will be available for other people to take. You can contact our office to find out where rooms are available before cancelling your current assignment.
If you are unsatisfied with your living situation, please contact your Resident Assistant who will guide you through the process of changing your living space or making your current living space more comfortable.
The cost of living in Housing will automatically be charged to your University of Idaho student account. All charges for the semester should be paid before or on the first day of the semester. You may set up a payment plan with the University through VandalWeb
to pay monthly installments on your bill.
