Renew Your Room

We encourage returning residents looking to live in the residence halls again next year to complete the renewal application.

Did You Know?

  • Students wanting to live together can choose the same room
  • There is no cost to renew a room because the $200 deposit rolls over to the following year
  • McConnell, the LLCs, and floors 1-3 of Wallace/Ballard are available for upper-level students
  • Students over the age of 19 may also choose Elmwood apartments.

Benefits for residents renewing to the LLCs:

  • Meal plans are not required for LLC residents. Less expensive meal plans are available.
  • The following items are included in the cost: power, trash, wireless, water, garbage, laundry and house cleaning.
  • No car, commute or battling for a parking spot. This means you save money on car maintenance, gas, insurance and a campus parking pass.
  • Unlike off campus apartments, which generally charge first and last month's rent payment and an additional deposit - all up front, Housing charges nothing. Your deposit from the prior year rolls over. For example, an apartment off campus that costs $750 per month would require $2000 before students can move in.
  • Housing & Residence Life invests in students with the Resident Scholar Program $1500 award.  This award is available to undergraduates who apply after living in the Residence Halls for four years and graduate with a bachelor's degree in four years.

Living in the Scholars LLCs has made it easy to be involved on campus. The fireplace and study rooms have been great places to hold mock trial meetings or IBC team meetings. I've also met a lot of close friends in my hall, and I've been able to get involved in RHA serving as a hall representative and President of the LLC community. I've enjoyed my time living on campus and will forever cherish all of my time living here. -- Lauren, Finance and Marketing

Convenience: Be close to everything

You’re walking distance to classes, faculty, library, computer labs, rec. center and great places to eat! Don’t waste your time at traffic lights and finding parking spots in the morning. Ease your stress and sleep in.

Avoid money hassles

Avoid typical apartment monthly bills, buying furniture, paying for repairs and chasing down roommates for rent payments.

Be successful

Students who live on campus have higher GPAs, are more likely to graduate and be more satisfied with their college experience than students who live off campus.

Make friends and stay connected

You are guaranteed to meet people who are close by for studying, class help or just hanging out. Have the time of your life doing intramural sports, clubs, student government, resident hall events and everything the University campus has to offer.


You will be living with people who are going through the same experiences as you. You have the ability to talk to faculty, staff and students who can support your personal and academic needs.

For apartment residents, six-month agreements end in December and twelve-month agreements end in June. Prior to the end of these agreement periods, you will be sent a letter from Housing & Residence Life regarding your intent to return or intent to vacate. You will need to fill out the appropriate paperwork during this time.
