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 (2023) 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 Selection Process & Timeline

November 28, 2022: 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.

November 29, 2022: Students who are mutually matched with an individual/group, who already has an existing assignment from Fall 2022, will be assigned on this day and will not need to proceed with the self-selection process on November 30th. Remaining students who did not mutually match will be notified of their self-selection timeslot which indicates when they can log onto the Self Service website to select their desired space. Please note: if you an your preferred roommate are both applying for winter/spring housing, you will need to participate in the self-selection process on November 30th.

November 30, 2022: Students who have received a timeslot will self-select their own winter and spring housing assignment on this day. The earliest timeslot will be 9:00am.

December 8, 2022: Students who did not submit their application by the deadline to self-select or were unable to self-select on November 30th will be assigned and notified on this day.

January 1, 2023: Winter term move-in for apartments and residence halls.

Spring Only Housing Timeline

January 2, 2023: Application deadline for spring only housing. The application can be found on the Self Service website.

January 6, 2023: Students will be assigned and notified of their assignments for spring.

January 28, 2023: Spring term move-in for apartments and residence halls.

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


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

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.
