CURRENT STUDENT ROOM SELECTION for Fall 2022

Updated 4/22/2022

The housing application is unavailable until early May.  This is due to the payment portal being transitioned to a single portal for Penn west.

 

Information about our current housing offerings is below.  Please, contact Residence Life Services if you have any questions.  The office can be reached at reslife@clarion.edu or by calling 814-393-2352.

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU TAKE PART IN ROOM SELECTION:

  • If you sign the online contract in the application to participate in Room Selection  you are bounded to the contract and will NOT BE RELEASED unless you cancel during the cancellation period or if you no longer attend Clarion University.  
  • Room Selection will be in phases and once you are assigned to a room, you will not be able to  participate in another Room Selection phase. 
  • The 2-year residency requirement was reinstated for Fall 2021. Current freshmen are required to live on campus for their sophomore year, unless they are approved through an exemption. 
  • To receive priority  consideration for medical housing accommodations, students should contact the office of Disability Support Services to have their recommendation  renewed for Fall 2022 (this includes emotional support animals).  Accommodations are to be renewed annually.  You will want to have your accommodation in to Residence Life and Housing as soon as possible. 
  • The housing application fee will be required for ALL students for the 2022-2023 academic year.
  • If rooms are not filled through any process, Residence Life has the right to consolidate assignments to make room for empty rooms/apartments.  

THE HOUSING APPLICATION will be linked here on April 11th.


PHASES OF ROOM SELECTION

 Roommate Selection - April 25th - TBD

Students who have applied for housing will need to complete the roommate selection option found in the housing portal.  You will be able to search for a specific roommate if you have someone in mind or search for a compatible roommate using the roommate search option. 

Students who are participating in the first phase of retention (see below for information) are not required to select roommates. 

Those participating in the second phase of retention (see below for information), must select roommates in order to pull them into the room; but are not required to fill the suite or apartment.

Students who will be participating in open selection are required to select enough roommates to fill their preferred room style.  Students who do not have roommate requests or do not have enough roommates to fill a room, will not be able to select a room until June.

 

Retain your room with current roommates - May 26th at 9am-June 1 at 11:59pm.

Current upperclass (sophomores, juniors, seniors to be graduate students) students can retain their room through the online app for the 2022-2023 academic year.   Current freshmen cannot retain their room unless they are in an LLC and designate that on their housing application.

This retention phase is only for students who are retaining their current room with the same roommates or no new roommate requests.  If you plan to pull in students who do not currently live in your suite or apartment DO NOT do this retention phase.  You will do the second retention phase.

STEPS:

1 - Complete the application and pay the $100 housing application service fee.

2 - Log in to select the SAME room you are in now.  You will not be able to change this space for the Fall 2022 semester if you retain your room.

3 - You are done!  If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Residence Life Services Office.

If rooms are not filled through any process, Residence Life has the right to consolidate assignments to make room for empty rooms/apartments. 

Retain your room with new roommates - June 2 at 9am - June 12 at 11:59pm

If your current roommates are not retaining the room/suite/apartment in which you plan to retain, you can pull-in residents to fill those vacancies. The residents that are being pulled in MUST currently live in campus housing and will have to complete the online application to sign the contract for housing to be eligible to be pulled in. 

STEPS:

1 - Complete the application and pay the $100 application service fee

2 - Go through the roommate matching process occurring April 14-17.  You will be able to type in specific roommate requests or search for compatible roommates through this process.  EVERYONE MUST ACCEPT THE ROOMMATE REQUESTS IN ORDER TO PULL STUDENTS INTO THE SUITE OR APARTMENT.

3 - Log in to the housing portal to go through the process to select the SAME room you are in now.  Your confirmed roommate requests should pull into the room with you.  You will not be able to change this space for the Fall 2022 semester if you retain your room.

 

If rooms are not filled through any process, Residence Life has the right to consolidate assignments to make room for empty rooms/apartments. 


Living learning communities - TBD

If you are interested in one of the Living Learning Communities, you will need to complete the housing application/contract and select the community within the application.
You can retain your room in LLCs or pull-in friends that are eligible for the LLC all through the app and during the general phases of the outlined process.
If you have a roommate request, we will do our best to honor it.  Your roommate should follow the same steps above and list you as their preferred roommate. 
For more information about our specific Living Learning Communities, please visit the webpage found here.  If you have any questions, contact our office at 814-393-2352 or reslife@clarion.edu.

Important Information


IMPORTANT:

Students selecting housing for the 2022-2023 school year should be aware that you CANNOT FORCE other students out of an apartment/room that they have selected to live in. Bullying and/or harassment to force another student out of a room that they have selected should be reported to the Office of Judicial and Mediation Services. If it is found that you have bullied and/or harassed another student to move out of a room, then you will be removed from that room and will be required to select another room/apartment on-campus.  This behavior is also subject to student conduct action under the Student Code of Conduct. Bullying and/or harassment can be reported to the Office of Judicial and Mediation Services by calling 814-393-1918 or emailing Sarah Zerfoss at szerfoss@clarion.edu

 

WAITLIST:  If there are no rooms available that meet the student's preference during the Open Selection process, a Room Selection waitlist will be available.  Students must have their Room Selection application contract completed to be eligible to be on the wait list.  This wait list will guarantee students a place to reside for next year and we will work to accommodate requests until we have to lock rooms for building preparations.  At that time the students will be assigned into a room/suite/apartment that may not be their their top preferences.
