The Office of Residential Life and Housing is happy that you are interested in becoming part of our community. Once you have paid your $200 enrollment deposit through Admissions, you may access this link to secure a place on campus for the fall 2013 semester.
You must first make a $220 housing deposit by clicking here (or copy and paste link into the address line: http://www.ric.edu/residential-life/housingdeposit.php) which will take you to our housing deposit payment page. Once the deposit has been confirmed (this may take a few days to a week), you may continue the application process by completing the Freshman Housing Questionnaire found on the My Housing link in the Student Center under the Self Service section of your RIConnect.
Please note: Freshman students who complete their housing deposit process by May 15, 2013 will be guaranteed housing for fall. All others will be housed based on availability at the time of deposit. Freshman students cannot complete the Freshman Housing Questionnaire until after May 1, 2013.
The Office of Residential Life & Housing makes every effort to offer housing to those students who are interested in living on campus. However, because of limited housing space, we cannot guarantee housing for transfer students. We have a waitlist process that allows transfer students to place their name on our list. By returning your housing interest card to the Office of Admission, your name will then be added to our waitlist. As space becomes available through the year our staff will offer housing to those students on the waitlist in the order that the requests were made. Students on the waitlist do not make the housing deposit until a space is offered. At the time of acceptance, a student will have 24 hours to make the housing deposit. If not, the space will be offered to the next person on the list.
Current residents who want to live on campus for the Fall 2013 semester who did not pay a housing deposit by March 11, 2013 can join the waitlist on May 1st 2013. Spaces will be assigned following based on the available spaces following the 2013-2014 room selection process.
As a current student of Rhode Island College, you may request to live on campus. We will open the waitlist for current students on May 1st 2013, after we complete the room selection assignments and know where we have available spaces. At the end of the spring semester, we begin to combine the current student and incoming transfer waitlists and make assignments based on date of request.
