For Parents of Second Year USP Students and Above

All information about the 2015-2016 Housing Selection & Placement Process is e-mailed to your student at his/her HuskyMail e-mail address.

Your student can apply by logging onto the Self-Service tab of the myNEU portal.

As a University Scholar your student is guaranteed housing and will receive a lottery number for the Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 if he/she applies by the January 21st deadline. Once your student receives a lottery number, he/she will be required to submit a deposit by February 17, 2015 at noon in order to secure your place in the selection process. The only requirement at this time is for your student to submit an application by 11:59pm EST on January 21st. Any students who do not apply by January 21st will receive a waitlist position and will not be able to participate in the room selection process.  If your student is unsure as to whether or not they will be living on campus for Fall 2015 or Spring 2016, Housing & Residential Life recommends that they apply anyway. Both Fall and Spring housing is limited and your student will not be eligible to receive a lottery number if they do not apply on time. If plans change students can cancel their Fall housing with no penalty by May 15, 2015 and their Spring housing by October 1, 2015.

  • Students will receive a lottery number via HuskyMail the week of February 2nd,and then will have until February 17th to secure their space by paying a $200 deposit via myNEU.
