Room Selection 2014 - 2015
Current Saint Mary’s students apply for housing for the next academic year by participating in the Housing Room Selection Process in the Spring.
Current first-year students who live on campus are guaranteed housing for their sophomore year if they meet the housing deposit deadline and complete the Housing Room Selection Process.
Current sophomore and junior students enter the NEW and ONLINE Housing Room Selection Process (lottery style) for the chance to receive on-campus housing. If the student receives on-campus housing through the selection process, they then pay the housing deposit to secure the space.
The Housing Room Selection Process for the 2014-2015 Academic Year has begun!
ANY and ALL continuing students who are looking for on-campus housing can begin the room selection process for the 2014-2015 academic year by submitting an online housing application through our new housing system, StarRez. Once your application has been submitted through StarRez, you will receive an email notification mid-March informing you to log back into StarRez to learn your appointment time. On your respective room selection day, you will logback into StarRez during your designated appointment time and select your room. If you do not receive on-campus housing when room selection is over, your application will automatically be in the Waitlist pool. When space becomes available, students will be contacted via phone and SMC e-mail. If housing is offered, students are generally given 24 hours to accept or decline. If accepted, they then pay the housing deposit.
*Please note, for continuing students who do not submit an online application by the deadline, the Campus Hosuing Office has assumed that you will not participate in the Housing Room Selection Process.
Housing Room Selection Process details are made available in mid-December. The important deadlines are available on the Campus Housing Calendar.
