Guide To Reapplication and Making Payment
Current residents living on campus for Spring 2016 will be able to reapply to live on campus for the 2016-2017 academic year between February 16-25. To ensure you are meeting the deadlines please check your Seawolf email daily. This webpage will continue to get updated as we go through this process.
Starting Tuesday, February 16 current residents will be able to reapply. To prevent overloading the system, we request you reapply according to the following schedule:
- Cabernet @ 10 am
- Zinfandel @ 11 am
- Verdot @ Noon
- Sauvignon @ 1 pm
- Beaujolais @ 2 pm
- Tuscany @ 3 pm
This is not a first come, first offered priority, you can reapply anytime during the period. The deadline to reapply is 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 25. Applications received after February 25 will be placed on a waitlist.
Campus housing is not guaranteed for multiple years of residency. The Returning Resident process is lottery based with consideration given to those individuals who have lived on campus the least amount of time. Over the past few years, the number of paid housing down payments has exceeded the number of available spaces offered; therefore down payments were returned to individuals who we could not offer space to right away. For this reason, we will only accept housing down payments from our first year residents during the Reapply period. A first year resident is a student currently living on campus who has lived on campus only one or two semesters.

If you decide after making the payment that you wish to cancel your application and/or assignment, you may do so in writing by May 1, 2016 and receive a 50% refund of your Housing Down Payment; after May 1, 2016 there are no refunds.
Residents will log on to the ResidentWeb between February 16-25 to reapply only. You will not be required to make the Housing down payment during this time. We want to make sure we can offer you a space before we take your Housing Down Payment. Priority is lottery based and depends on how long you have lived on campus. For example, a student who has lived on campus four years will have a lower priority than someone going on their third year.
If we can extend some offers to students who have lived on campus three years or more, we will notify the student and require a $400 Housing Down Payment before Room Selection. The $400 Housing Down Payment is required regardless of a student’s financial aid status.

Gender Inclusive Housing
Gender Inclusive housing would be a great option for those students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, queer, asexual, transsexual, and/ or intersex, as well as committed allies. Gender Inclusive spaces will be most likely be located in Colombard. Options for both single and double bedrooms are available for all students interested. Gender Inclusive housing is not the same as coed apartments. Coed apartments are not available on campus. In order to be considered for gender inclusive housing you must fill out a supplemental questionnaire and receive approval from a designated Area Coordinator in addition to the housing application. Click here for more information about Gender Inclusive or contact Tramaine Austin-Dillon at (707) 664-3735.
Offering Space to Returning Residents
Once the reapply period closes, we will review the number of applications received between February 16-25. Depending on the number of applications from first year residents, we will determine if we can offer more space to those who have lived on campus three semesters or longer. We do anticipate being able to offer space to this group of students, we just won’t know how many until after the Reapply period.
Students who reapply between February 16-25, but are not offered a space, will receive a waitlist number.
Accepting Agreement and Selecting A Room
Residents offered space will log on to the ResidentWeb to accept their License Agreement and select a room. The Offer email will list a lottery number which is randomly generated by the computer and determines when you can select your room. Room selection will take place March 22-24. Residents who can fill full apartments will select apartments on March 22. Individuals and other group sizes will choose their space on March 23 and 24.
It's very important to understand that if you do not complete the above steps by the required deadlines, you will lose your priority to return or secure a room.
A Note About The Waitlist
We understand being placed on a waitlist can be stressful. We can only accommodate so many returning residents initially; but then start to offer more as individuals don’t complete the process or cancel. Typically, we are successful at accommodating a waitlisted student who reapplied during the Reapply period.
