Parents Information

March 2015



For Parents of Current Residents

Housing for 2015-2016

Students who were offered North Campus Traditional Housing have been asked to submit a $200 deposit no later than Monday, March 23, at 4:00 pm. 

For students who have not secured housing, our waitlist will be available on April 6 for students who applied for housing but were not offered a space, and on April 13 for all other current students.  This housing application process does not guarantee a student a space for 2015-2016.  We encourage students who wish to complete a waitlist application to also consider housing options off-campus. Waitlist applications are not processed until the summer months. 

Any questions regarding this information should be directed to the Office of Residence Life and Housing Services at or 610-436-3306. Questions regarding Allegheny Hall, Brandywine Hall, Commonwealth Hall, University Hall, the Village Apartments or East Village Apartments, can be directed to the University Student Housing staff at or 610-430-4988.  


For Parents of Incoming Students

All incoming freshmen who were admitted as on-campus residents and who have paid their $400 Admission/Housing deposit AND have completed their online Housing Preference Form, will be sent the appropriate housing application materials on a rolling basis.   Please refer to your student’s individual e-mail for the applicable deadlines.  After the student’s deadline, on-campus housing may be cancelled.

Students may request another resident student as a roommate.  Instructions will be sent to residents of traditional halls in May. 

Transfer students who are admitted as on-campus resident students will be sent information via e-mail in mid- to late-March.  The Village Apartments and East Village Apartments have space available for our incoming transfer students. 

Any questions regarding this information can be directed to the Office of Residence Life and Housing Services at or 610-436-3306.
