Housing Application for New Freshman and New Transfers

For New Students

To apply for housing, please submit your $300 Tuition Deposit to Admissions and contact your Admissions Counselor to receive the link to the Online Housing Application.

Housing priority is given to students who are required to live on campus (new freshmen and transfers under 21) who submit their tuition deposit and apply for housing prior to the preceding by the May 1 preferred housing deadline. The date you submit your housing deposit puts you in line for housing. Fall applicants applying prior to May 1, can expect to hear about their housing placement status by June 1. Students who apply for fall housing after May 1, are housed based on availability and will be notified of their housing placement status in July.

Spring Housing placements are made in November. Please email to check on the status of your housing request.

Summer Housing is available to graduate and undergraduate students and is available on a weekly basis. New students should contact their Admissions Counselor for the link to the Online Housing Application. Returning CU students should stop by Student Services. Please contact after submitting your summer application to check on the status of your request.

For Returning Students

Fall Housing Applications:

Fall Housing Applications are due for Returning Students by March 1. To apply for housing, you must be registered as full-time (12+ credits) for the following year by March 1. Visit the CU Intranet, look under Useful Links, then scroll down to Applications. You will find the Returning Student Housing Application available there.

If this is your first time submitting a returning student housing application, follow the link to create a SimpleCampus Account before attempting to login. Email with any questions or if you are unable to create an account.

If you missed the March 1 deadline, you may still apply for housing. You may be placed on a waiting list and will not receive a lottery number to participate in the March Registration Process for returning students.

Age Policy

The residence hall community is set up programmatically for traditional-age students. Concordia University does not offer housing in the residence halls to married students or students with families.

  • The age limit for Concordia on-campus housing is 17-24.
  • Priority will be given to students under 21 who fall under the residency requirement and to undergraduate students.
  • Students outside of this age range may request special approval from Student Services and, if approved, be housed based on availability.
  • Military personnel who exceed this age range due to service may also apply for housing and, if approved, be housed based on availability.
  • Students 21 and over will be housed in apartments whenever possible.
  • Returning students who fall outside of this range who are currently housed on-campus may continue to apply for housing.
