2023-2024 Neighborhood Unit Housing Application

  1. The on-campus housing application for 2023-2024 Neighborhood Units is completed via your eCampus account by selecting "Manage Housing." Therefore, in order to submit a Housing Application, you'll need your eCampus login and password. 
  2. Of course, you'll also need access to the internet. If you are having issues with your application, please try a different browser. We have found that Chrome works the best. 
  3. A $500 pre-payment deposit; deposits can ONLY be paid using a debit or credit card. 
  4. Before beginning a housing application, you should confirm if you will apply as an individual or if you will apply with a group of other students.
    1. If you apply as an individual you will NOT need to create an Individual Profile in order to go through the room selection process.
    2. If you apply as a member of a group, one member of the group will need to create a Group Profile and all other members of the group will need to connect their application to this Group Profile.

  7. Housing requires all Neighborhood Unit applicants to attend four OCHO Programs which will be offered in Winter 2023 and must be completed by March 10th, 2023. If you previously attended OCHO programs, they will count for the Neighborhood Unit application process. The OCHO requirement is an effort to further educate our students and set our students up for a successful off-campus living experience. Failure to attend/complete four OCHO programs by March 10th, 2023 will result in the cancellation of your 2023-2024 NU housing contract. If you are unable to attend or have questions or concerns, please reach out to

Room Selection for Neighborhood Units

Students who received a confirmation to live in the Neighborhood Units from 2022-2023, and wish to return for the 2023-2024 academic year, are given priority to apply for their CURRENT unit. 50% of the current residents must remain for the unit to be considered a returner unit. Potential pull-ins for returner groups need to wait and apply in February when the application opens. 

Neighborhood Unit placements for new applicants will be processed in order based on date and time of application. This includes students wanting to join returner groups that have already been assigned to a house/apartment.

All individuals will be sent an email to notify them of their placements. Once you have been informed of your Neighborhood Unit placement, your group will also be sent an email. This email will contain a floor plan of the Neighborhood Unit and instructions for room selection. Each group member will need to place themselves in a bedroom and designate the room type of the bedroom (ex. single, double, or triple).


Study Abroad Questions

If you plan to study abroad during Fall 2023 and your roommate agrees to pay the single rate for the Fall 2023 quarter, we'll hold a space within the room for you. When you return for Winter 2024, you and your roommate will each be billed the double rate for the room.

You must complete a 2023-2024 Neighborhood Unit Housing application, including the $500 prepayment deposit, and complete the 1 required OCHO programs.  

We suggest that if you are applying to study abroad and have any interest in living on campus upon your return, that you go ahead and complete the 2023-2024 Housing application. If you end up not studying abroad, you'll have more options as it relates to on-campus housing. If you do spend Fall 2023 studying abroad, the Housing Office will hold onto your application and contact you in October 2023 to ascertain your interest in on-campus housing for when you return for Winter & Spring 2024.
