Housing Applications

Thank you for your interest in on-campus housing at the Rutgers University Newark Campus. There are also a variety of special interest housing options. Students who apply for housing after May 15th will be assigned based on the priority criteria listed below. All students interested in on-campus housing must apply separately from their application for admission to the University.

Housing assignments are determined based on several criteria including but not limited to the following:
*Geographical distance from student’s home address to campus, with students that live the furthest away receiving a priority.
*Date that your housing application is received, with students that apply the earliest receiving a priority.
*Certain academic programs and campus involvement also receive additional priority for housing.

How To Apply:

For first year or transfer undergraduate students at Rutgers University-Newark:

The housing application is available after you accept the university’s offer of admission. To accept your offer of admission, log onto Your Rutgers Status and enroll.

If you have already accepted your offer of admission, access the online housing application through the Enrollment Pathway.
