Wait List Information

Resdients in the Community Gardens

After applying for an apartment, potential residents' names are placed on a waiting list according to the date applied, when they wish to move in, and what priority they have according to their eligibility. Potential residents are welcome to apply for any type of apartment their eligibility allows without affecting their chances of being offered an apartment. Applicants who are not offered an apartment for a date they requested are automatically carried over to the next month's wait list until:

  • An apartment can be offered to the applicant
  • The applicant changes the occupancy date desired
  • The applicant cancels their application

University Apartments staff update wait lists twice each year. We send applicants an email to the address on their application requesting updates to information. Failure to respond to this request will result in cancellation of an application.

Current Priorities

If an offer is accepted, the applicant must move into the apartment no later than 30 days after the start date of the lease.

Apartment Offers

An apartment will be offered at least 30 days prior to the beginning of a lease. In most cases, apartments are offered 60 days in advance. Outside of the summer, apartments are occasionally available with little to no wait. If an offer is accepted, the applicant must move in to the apartment no later than 30 days after the start date of the lease. Failure to meet this requirement may result in the termination of a lease.

Applicants who reject a total of two apartment offers for their desired occupancy date will lose their original application date priority. Applicants that fail to respond to two apartment offers will have their applications moved to the bottom of the waiting list.
