Assignments - Incoming Freshmen
Students who are given a reserved housing status upon admission to
Salisbury University must then complete the housing application and
pay the housing deposit during
the application period in order to be eligible for an assignment.
After the application process is completed, your reserved status will
be changed to guaranteed status.
Students are assigned housing by the date they pay the
housing deposit. Once assignments are distributed there is a housing freeze
through the third week of the upcoming semester. This means
you will be unable to request a move from the room you have been assigned.

becomes available. We recognize that the earlier the offer, the better for
the student and family. If your number-one choice is to live on campus, we
ask that you check with the Housing Office before you solidify any
off-campus plans. We will inform you of where we are in the process at that

Summer and Winter Housing
Students who wish to live
on-campus during the summer sessions or winter session need to
visit the housing office to complete a room reservation. Students are
eligible to live on-campus if they are enrolled in classes or work
on-campus. Students who are working on-campus need to bring their work
contract with them when they complete the room reservation.
