Exclusive Call Dibs Online apartment selection process for on-campus apartment residents 

All of these steps are completed online, in the Housing Portal

  1. Complete a Housing Application on line for 2021-2022 (Jan 25 - Feb 18) 
  2. Create a group that fills the apartment you want (Jan 25 - Feb 18) 
  3. Pick your space (Feb 23-25)

Students living off-campus are able to join a group and participate in the Call Dibs apartment selection process but they cannot be the captain of their group and at least one person in their group must currently be an on-campus resident.  If you do not have a group or don't participate in the Call Dibs process, you can still submit an On-Campus Housing Request for Fall Semester (opening March 3, 2021) and we will happily work with you to get you an on-campus space.

Q:  Cost wise, how do the apartments compare to the halls?

The similarity in cost may surprise you! Per semester, a traditional residence hall double plus the core meal plan actually costs a little bit more than a double room in a 6-person Gables apartment and the largest swipe meal plan! If you would rather do more of your own cooking, meal plans are optional for apartment residents. Add in free break housing and the savings go up.

Q: I currently live in the on-campus apartments but I don’t have a full apartment group? It’s just me, or just me and a friend or two.

If you have less than a full-group (say just you or just you and one or two friends) and are hoping to secure a space within an apartment, our Call Dibs process will allow you to complete the application, form your group, and you'll be manually assigned by the On-Campus Apartment Coordinator.  They will work with you to ensure that you are assigned to an apartment space with other partial groups. So even if you don't have a full group, there's a great opportunity for you to get an wonderful assignment at the on-campus apartments.

Q: Can apartments be co-ed?

Yes! More information about coed apartment living is available on the Housing website at

Q: Are the apartments open during vacations?

Yes again! They remain open during Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring Breaks at no additional cost! You are free to come and go as you please during those break periods.

Q: Do I have to wait until the selection process opens to form my apartment group?

No, you shouldn't!!! As a matter of fact, the best course of action is to start as early as possible and get your group together and form your housing group early. That way you are prepared for the selection process when it begins!

Q: I currently live in the residence halls.  What if my group and I don't snag an apartment?

If your group doesn't find a space during the online sign-up, you can request to be added to our apartment wishlist. We will call your group captain if spaces open for your group members at Gables or Woodside! Last year we were able to accommodate many groups on the apartment wishlist, so stay positive! Additionally, if you have any specific questions or requests about your apartment assignment or your hope to live at Gables or Woodside next year, contact  Your group is welcome to sign-up for residence halls spaces (March 9-10) and we will continue looking for an apartment space for them throughout the spring and summer.  

Q: Holding a Space for Someone (Placeholder)

Any student participating in the Call Dibs apartment selection process agrees that they are NOT “a placeholder” for a different student – they fully intend to live at Gables or Woodside for the 2021-2022 academic year and are bound by all terms of the Room & Board agreement, including the Cancellation Charge Schedule.
