Housing for Incoming Students
We are thrilled that you have chosen APU! As an incoming student you will be provided with a pathway to secure campus housing as part of the undergraduate admissions process. Read about the details below:
Request for Campus Housing Assignment
For incoming students who must/wish to live in campus housing, you will need to complete and submit the Request for Campus Housing Assignment Form in order to be matched with a specific roommate or roommates and to receive your housing assignment in a timely manner. Access to this online form is provided by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions as a part of the admissions process.
Request for Campus Housing Exemption
If you are an incoming freshman, transfer freshman, or sophomore, and you live with your parent(s) locally, are over 21, are married, have part-time status, or have other special circumstances that present an obstacle to campus residency, you must submit a Request for Campus Housing Exemption Form in order to be considered for exemption from the housing requirement. You may obtain this form from your admissions representative in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Preferences for Undergraduate Students
In order to build a sense of community and acclimate to campus life at APU, the majority of our incoming students reside in our residence halls. Freshmen and sophomores are required to live on. Depending upon availability and how early a request has been submitted, it is possible for juniors and seniors to be assigned to a campus apartment, however, the majority will reside in our residence halls.
To learn more about our campus housing areas, including floor plans, videos, amenities, and costs, please click on the links below, While students may request specific living areas, preferences are not guaranteed.
Graduate students who would like to request housing to start in fall or spring should download the Graduate Housing Program 2023-24 (PDF). Note that the graduate housing program is very limited and space is not guaranteed. Students must be enrolled in classes at the start of their stay in housing. For fall, students are generally emailed their assignment or wait list status in early July or within 2-3 business days if a request is submitted after this time. For spring, assignments or waiting list status is emailed out before the university closes down for winter break.
Graduate students who would like to request housing to start in the summer, should download the Graduate Summer Housing 2023 (PDF). Again, the graduate housing program is very limited and space is not guaranteed. Incoming students must be enrolled in classes at the start of their stay in housing. For summer, assignments or wait list status is emailed out in early May.
