    Singles for 2021/2022

    All students requesting a single will need to fill out the Single Wait List form linked below. Singles are currently limited to a need basis.

    Singles for the 2021/2022 academic year will return to the full rate and will be based on availability in the halls.  Singles in the Quad complex are now on an as needed basis.  If spaces become available they will be given on a first come basis. Priority is given to those who filled out the form before June 12th.  The singles wait list is currently available.

    Rates for single and double rooms are listed on our Residence Halls page.

    First year students who would like a single may also fill out the singles wait list.  Priority is given to those who fill out the form before June 12th.  

    The single room is for the duration of the academic year. If later in the semester or year you wish to switch your room to a double, you must have a roommate identified or be willing to switch rooms.

    Based on need, a certain number of singles are available in each community. First Year Students will only be considered for singles in Shiple Hall. Upper class students will only be considered for singles in Holden Hall and the Quads. If there is not a single available in your preferred building, you can either choose a single in a different building or select to be in a double room.
