First-time, first-year students are required to live on campus for their first four matriculated semesters, and will receive a housing offer via their UVM email account soon after May 1st. First-time first-year students do not need to submit an on-campus housing request in myResLife.

In order to receive a housing assignment, you must first complete a housing and meal plan contract. The housing and meal plan contract is available at MyUVM portal (click on myResLife).

You will be assigned to a room based on:

  • Whether you have applied and been accepted into any programmed housing (before you can apply for that, you must first complete a housing and meal plan contract).
  • The preferences you list on your contract (room style, roommate, lifestyle preferences)
