We encourage you to review the various rates available on the Housing Web site before making your decision. Please visit http://www.scu.edu/housing/cost.cfm.
All students living on campus are required to be on a resident dining plan for the entire academic year. All students may choose the Preferred or Basic resident dining plan. Only juniors or seniors living in any accommodation may select the Junior/Senior resident dining plan (the student must be in their third or fourth academic year). Only juniors and seniors in apartments (University Villas, Casa Italiana and Sobrato) are eligible for the Apartment resident dining plan.
If you will be studying abroad next fall and wish to live on campus upon your return, you must apply during the same time frame described above. Make sure to indicate the term for which you will need housing as well as complete the study abroad question found on the housing application. Students who apply for housing during this process will be given priority for placement in winter or spring. For students requesting housing for winter, an email will be sent in mid-November in order to check in and confirm that housing is still needed.
University Villas Applicants – Students who will be abroad and who would like to be placed in University Villas when they return may arrange with a roommate to share a room. This agreement needs to be between both students and should be communicated in the “Comments” section of the housing application.
· Preference Selection – If you are interested in being placed in a double room when you return from abroad, you should select “University Villas 4 Bedroom Apartment Premium Sized Double” or “University Villas 4 Bedroom Apartment Premium Sized Double w/ Bath.”
· Please keep in mind that we are anticipating having a wait list for the University Villas community and will not be able to hold spaces for students who will be abroad.
All students must submit the $250 housing deposit, including students on scholarship. The housing deposit will be applied to the Fall quarters room and board feed.
This upcoming year we are happy to confirm the following communities which will offer single rooms:
· University Villas – Apartment singles
· CyPhi (Swig) – Designed single rooms and double as single rooms on the SLURP floor
· da Vinci (Casa Italiana) – Apartment Singles

· Nobili Hall – Nobili singles with bath
Fall, 2013 juniors and seniors may only request to be placed in University Villas, da Vinci apartments, Loyola apartments, Nobili singles and doubles and the SLURP floor in Swig.
In the case you may need a special accommodation, please indicate any medical factors which need to be taken into consideration in room placement when completing the housing application. Keep in mind that in order to receive an official university accommodation for a disability, you must register with Disabilities Resources, located in Benson Center, office 216, as soon as possible and no later than February 1st, 2013.
In order to be able to select a room/unit with roommates/apartment mates, students will need to do the following:
1. The first person who applies is the group leader and will need to add a group, create a group name and password.
2. The Group Leader shares this group name and password with others in the group so they may join the group. (Hint - Prep before the date of the application and share what the group name and password will be.)
3. Students applying on their own will need to create a group of 1.
