First-year Student Process

Congratulations on your acceptance to Elon University and welcome to the Elon community! As the process to select housing preferences begins, this site is designed to provide you and your family information about living on campus next year. As you read through the materials carefully, please let us know if you have questions.

During the fall selection process, incoming students are asked to provide information about their housing preferences. This includes information about living learning communities (LLC’s) in which you would like to participate, as well as preferences for residential neighborhoods or roommates (if you have one you are already interested in rooming with). Housing assignment is based on the enrollment deposit date, starting with assigning interested students to LLC’s and then assigning students who are not interested in an LLC. Housing assignments are sent to students in mid-July.
