Welcome to the Elon Community!
Congratulations on your acceptance to Elon University and welcome to the Elon community! You are joining over 4100 other residential students in a premier learning environment. As the process to select housing preferences begins, this site is designed to provide you and your family information about living on campus. As you read through the materials carefully, please let us know if you have questions.
Spring Admitted Students
You will be asked lifestyle questions such as study/sleep habits, so we can match you with a potential roommate. We realize this can be a stressful process, but rest assured our staff is here to help.
First-year Student Process
During the fall selection process, incoming students are asked to provide information about their lifestyle preferences. This includes information about study habits, bedtime, communication style, etc., as well as preferences for roommates.
Transfer Student Process
Transfer students who want to live on campus must complete the housing application in Self Service (www.elon.edu/myhousing).
Application Process and Timeline
First, new students are assigned to living learning communities, if they are interested and space is available. Next, students who are not assigned to living learning communities are assigned to remaining spaces, using a random process.
Living & Learning Communities for Incoming Students
Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are groups of students residing in the same residential area, interacting academically and socially with each other and with faculty, and sharing the same academic major, program or interest.
Residential Neighborhoods for Incoming Students
All new first-year students live in one of five residential neighborhoods. For additional information about the specific neighborhoods, click the link below.
Gender and Inclusive Housing
Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) provides students with the opportunity to room with student(s) regardless of sex, gender, gender identity/expression, or sexual orientation.
