Housing Selection Information

Returning Student Overview

Students looking to change their housing status from resident to commuter, or commuter to resident must complete this Change of Residency Status Form before April 1st, 2015. 

Additionally, all students who wish to Apply for Healthy Living must complete this Healthy Living Application by March 13th, 2015

Prior to housing Selection please review our Online Selection Tutorial.  

The Meal Plan and Board Agreement form will be posted in Fall 2015.


Housing Selection is an on-line process for returning students with the exception of Resident Assistants and the Healthy Living Community themed housing options. New Endicott students receive housing preference forms in May and will receive placements in August. 

Housing selection is done based on a point system which includes class standing, GPA and conduct status. Each student will receive total points, which they may review. Once points have been finalized, each student receives a selection date and time. Since selection is done on-line, students may access their COAST accounts during their selection time from anywhere an internet connection is available. Students may choose a room any time after their assigned selection time, but not before. Once a student has chosen a room in the online system, they are removed from the Housing Selection Process and may NOT make any changes to their decision for the duration of Housing Selection. Student room selection times are fully dependent on how many points he or she has.  And any room that matches the student gender, and is available, may be selected regardless of age or class standing. 

In order to participate in Housing Selection every student MUST:
a. Be a current on-campus resident, on Study Abroad, or on Temporary Semester Internship.
b. Be enrolled as a full time student and be registered for Fall classes before the start of the first round of room selection. 
c. Be approved to return from leave of absence or be readmitted by April 1st.   
d. Be financially cleared by April 1st. Not have submitted a Change of Residency Status form to live Off-Campus for the Fall semester by April 1st.
