When to Apply
New (first-semester & transfer) students for fall 2021/spring 2022 may begin applying 1 - 2 business days after the pay their tuition deposit. Students that apply by Friday, May 28th will be included in the first group of housing assignments. Applications received after May 28th will be assigned as they are received. These dates also apply for the Academic Village application and the Outdoor Adventure & Community Service applications. Students can make a request for a room change if they wish to relocate to a different room or location.
Students applying for spring 2022 housing should complete the application at their earliest convenience. Assigns for spring will be sent to students by December 23rd.
Requesting a location
New students can list location preferences on the housing application. Requests are not guaranteed and are made using many factors. For College Hall, Robertshaw Hall, and University Court, these areas are generally assigned in order of application. However, other factors such as availability of space will also influence placement.
For Academic Village and OACS communities, students will be placed if they are accepted by the director of that area. New students are not able to list the Academic Village or OACS as a location preference on the application. Acceptance into one of these locations will supersede requests listed on the application.
Requesting a roommate
Students are able to request roommates on the housing application by creating a roommate group. Roommate groups are like friend requests. When a student is added to a roommate group, they must accept the request. While students may be requested into many groups, they can only be in one accepted group at a time.
Students may remove themselves from groups prior to being assigned by logging back into Housing e-Services and selecting “Update Application”. In addition, the group leader (i.e. the student who created the group), may remove members from a group or disband the group.
Finding a Roommate
To help students with finding a roommate, new students (non-transfer) are first assigned a location but not a room or roommates. Students then will be able to search for compatible roommates in various ways.
Using an online app called RoomSync, students can look for others assigned to their location. Another option for finding roommates is using the Pitt-Greensburg Class of 2025 Facebook group. Additionally, students attending the early SOAR sessions may also use that as opportunity to connect with potential roommates.
Transfer students will not use the RoomSync application and will be assigned using information provided on the housing application. Transfer students are generally assigned to live with sophomores, juniors, seniors, and other transfer students.
Housing and Meal Accommodation Requests
Students that want to inquire about a specific housing or meal accommodation due to a medical condition must contact Disability Resources. It is highly recommended that requests be submitted by the May 28th deadline so they can be reviewed prior to students receiving assignments. Students can contact Disability Resources at 724-836-7098 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
