Before you apply
You'll need to take care of a few things;
- Create an IU network account and passphrase. Your student ID number is on the official acceptance notice sent to you by admissions.
- If you're under 18 years of age, your parent or guardian must agree to the contract terms. So have them create an eProxy account.
- In case you don't think you have to live with us, review the residence exemption process.
- If you have medical or physical concerns that will affect your assignment, you and your attending physician, need to complete and return the Medical Verification Form December 1, 2021 for Spring 2022 semester or May 1, 2022 for Fall 2022 semester.
- Review the costs.
- The university doesn't provide insurance or financial protection for your personal property. On your housing application, you'll be asked about your interest in obtaining coverage.
- Rank-order a list of your preferences (i.e. learning community, room type, location, roommate preference). You may update this list until until December 1, 2021 for Spring 2022 semester or May 1, 2022 for Fall 2022 semester.
- Choose a meal plan. You will enter your selection on your application.
- If you have a preferred roommate, get the individual's full name and IU network ID to enter on your application. Roommate requests must be mutual.
- We'll need an emergency contact for you. You'll enter this contact information on your application.
- Decide if you want to waive your privacy rights to your housing and dining records. If you do want us to share this information, complete a FERPA waiver. You'll need to provide the name of the individual(s) on your application.
- Have a valid Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, or JCB credit or debit card ready at hand for the $200 application fee.
- Incoming transfer and graduate students may also complete the housing application below. You will be assigned to housing designed for non-first year students, generally in our furnished apartment style living. Review information on Union Street Center and The Avenue.
