Our mission is to provide safe, inclusive, and supportive living and learning environments that positively impact student engagement, retention and success.

Living on campus can be one of the most important and memorable parts of the total college experience. It provides opportunities to make new friends, become a part of a community and benefit from the residence hall's educational, cultural, social and recreational activities.

Fall 2022 Housing Updates

Fall 2022 Housing Assignments 

Housing self-selection has already taken place for both returning students and first-year students. Students who submit an on-campus housing application after May 1, 2022, will be given a room assignment by the housing office.  


Students who do not have a roommate selected at the end of housing selection, or who lose a roommate prior to the start of the Fall 2022 semester, will be assigned a roommate or be consolidated with another student who is also without a roommate. 


Exemption from Residency Requirement  

As a reminder, all full-time undergraduate students are subject to a three-year residency requirement unless there is an approved exemption from this policy. Students under the age of 23 with less than 92 credits are required to submit either the on-campus application or have an approved off-campus application. This means that even if you intend on commuting from home, you must still submit the application to live off-campus.  


Both the on-campus and off-campus applications can be found on your PioHousing Portal. Read more about the residency requirement and download the 2022-2023 Student Housing License Agreement. 


Summer Housing Transition to Fall Process  

Students who are living on-campus in summer housing are required to transition to their fall room assignments beginning in early August. Students who will not be living on-campus for fall must move out of their summer placement by August 1. More instructions will be emailed regarding this transition in July as spaces are turned over and cleaned. Students must be on campus and available to move during their assigned transition dates.  


Move-In Details 

Mark your calendars for Fall 2022 move-in days! More details will be sent in July along with a helpful Move-In Guide that provides all the necessary information. 

  • August 28 and August 29 – Returning and Transfer Students (not participating in orientation) 

  • August 26 – First-year and Transfer Students (if participating in orientation) 


Early Arrival Process 

Students who need to move into their residence hall prior to August 26 for personal or a university-related reason are considered an early arrival and must be approved by the Office of Residence Life and Housing. More information and a request form will be posted in July.  


Contract Cancellation 

Students who completed an on-campus housing application sign a license agreement for the full academic year. After the contract is signed, students may not be released from their contract without meeting a residency exemption. Students who feel they have another extenuating circumstance may submit an appeal. For more information, please view the Cancellation Policies


Meal Plan Selection 

For Academic 2022-2023, some of the meal plan options have changed. The 10 Meal Weekly and 5 Meal Weekly plans are no longer offered. Students are automatically assigned the lowest meal plan option of a 12 Meal Weekly based on eligibility for meeting the minimum residency requirement.  


All Carroll students who are subject to the residency requirement are also required to select a Resident Meal Plan. Students that have achieved junior standing (60 credits) by the beginning of the academic year and live in Frontier, Pioneer or Prairie Halls may also select a Grand Avenue Meal Plan. Only students living in Carroll Street, College Avenue and Hartwell Avenue Apartments are exempt from this policy. 


Beginning in early August, students can upgrade this plan via the PioHousing Portal. For more information on meal plan options, rates, and policies as well as hours of operation, call 262.524.7347, email or visit
