How do I apply to live on campus for another year?

The housing process for continuing students is completely online and based on a lottery process. The application process begins in mid-January, and more information will be posted in the residence halls and online.

How does the housing lottery process work?

In January, continuing students who wish to live on campus must apply for lottery numbers that will be randomly generated and e-mailed to the students. Based on the lottery number, students will log into the housing application and select from their choice of available housing. The lottery process and calendar is updated annually. This information is published on the website towards the end of each Fall semester.

Do I have more living options as an upper class student?

Yes. Continuing students may choose to live in any of our residence styles, including suites and apartments. There may also be special interest living communities only available to continuing students.

I did not live on campus this year. Can I apply to live on campus this year?

Yes. Students can apply for a lottery number and move back on campus at any time during their tenure at Rutgers – New Brunswick.

I have a friend who is a first year student coming to campus. Can we request to be roommates?

First year students can only request to room with other first year students.

I have a friend who is an incoming transfer student. Can we request to be roommates?

Transfer students can only request to live with other incoming transfer students. If you are currently assigned to a space with a vacancy, you can email oncampus@echo.rutgers.edu to inquire about a friend who is an incoming transfer student filling this vacancy.
