2018 – 2019 Housing Updates

It’s never too early to consider what your housing plans are for 2018-2019! Whether this is your first year or third year living on campus, beginning fall 2018, HRE will consider you an upper-class student when you return to campus. The HRE housing options for upper-class students will change beginning fall 2018, and we encourage you to browse options available to you listed below.

The first 450 current U of U Housing residents to apply to live on campus for the 2018-2019 Academic Year will receive a free custom U of U Throwback Beanie! Application opens February 10th! To claim your beanie, stop by the HRE Main Office and let us know that you’ve applied. *Beanies will be given out on a first-come first-served basis while supplies last*

  • As current on-campus housing residents begin to think about resources available to them whether they live on or off campus, students are encouraged to consider the possibility of working with a Student Success Advocate. Particularly if a student has found support and advocacy through Housing and Residential Education’s staff (Resident Advisor, Social Justice Advocate, RHA student leader, etc.), finding support through a Student Success Advocate whether your home is on or off campus, will be a great way to continue receiving the support and advocacy necessary to a student’s success.
