First-Year Housing Assignments

What Are First-Year Housing Assignments?

First-year students are eligible to select Cluster StyleSuite StyleTraditional Style1 Bedroom Apartment Style2 Bedroom Apartment Style, 2 Bedroom/4 Person Apartment, 4 Bedroom/ 4 Person Apartment, and/or a Living-Learning Community as housing preferences on their Applications. You have the choice of living on the Allendale or Robert C. Pew Grand Rapids campuses.  

New for 2023-2024: students will be self-selecting their housing unit beginning in early May. First-year students applying by May 1 will receive priority selection time slots in the self-selection process (E the earlier you apply, the earlier you will be eligible to pick your housing unit).  You will not be eligible to enter the Self-Selection process housing until you have registered for Orientation.  Details on the self-selection process will be sent to students in April. 

Although many students will be selecting their own units through the self-selection process, we still ask for all applicants to provide us housing style preferences.  We highly recommend that you select at least three preferences. Traditional Style is the default preference for all incoming freshmen that do not indicate a housing style preference.
