Hello and welcome to the Phoenix family! We are excited that you will join us in the spring. 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.

Step One: Complete the housing application. 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 that our staff is here to help.

If you will need housing for winter and spring terms (2024) please fill out the application located on the Self-Service website (www.elon.edu/myhousing). The application will be available in early November.

Winter and Spring Housing Timeline

November 28, 2023: Application deadline for winter and spring housing. If you know of a specific vacancy that you would like to move into, you and the existing roommate(s) in that space will need to mutually match on the Self-Service website, much like you would during the Fall housing selection process, by this date as well.

December 8, 2023: Students will be notified of their housing assignment on this day.

January 2, 2024: Winter term move-in for apartments and residence halls.

NOTE: We are unable to make assignments just for winter term.

Spring Only Housing Timeline

January 2, 2024: Application deadline for spring only housing. The application can be found on the Self Service website.

January 5, 2024: Students will be assigned and notified of their assignments for spring.

January 30, 2024: Spring term move-in for apartments and residence halls.

*Assignment information will be sent out as quickly as possible for students to make plans.

**Incoming International students are invited to stay in contact with Global Education about their orientation and move-in plans.


Lease Turnover: If you have made arrangements to take over a lease from another student and completed the lease turnover form (returning and transfer students only) you do not need to complete the housing application.
