Frequently asked housing questions from new students.
A completed housing agreement is required in order to live on campus. The housing agreement is contained in your Acceptance Packet. To complete your housing application, you may mail in the housing agreement along with your $550 deposit or you may complete your application online.
Please refer to the Housing Costs page for more specific information.
Your Housing Deposit and Application are due by May 1 for priority housing. Dates and deadlines for room selection for the 2015-2016 academic year will be available in Spring 2015.
Yes. The tuition ($250) and housing ($300) deposits as well as the housing application must be completed by May 1 in order to be eligible to participate in the Online Room Selection Process. Applicants who miss the priority deadline will be placed on a housing waiting list and assigned a room at a later time. The deposits can be paid by mailing in a check for $550 to the Office of Admissions along with the housing agreement contained in the Acceptance Packet, or by paying online through the Admitted Students site.
You should complete your application requirements as soon as you can, although we do prioritize the students who meet our deadlines first.
Log in to your the eCampus account with your Adelphi username and password, and find the My Housing icon under the Services tab. From there, you’ll be able to select from the list of available rooms.
The New Freshmen Online Room Selection process allows students to select other new freshmen to be their roommate. Selecting a roommate is optional and not required in order to select a room during online room selection.
Please refer to Housing Options page for residence hall overviews information.
If there is space available, you may select a room in New Hall A or New Hall B.
Yes, we do have air conditioned rooms on select floors. Review Hall Information to find out which halls and floors have air conditioning.
None of the residence halls are specifically reserved exclusively for use by freshman students only. We want our freshman to become a part of the existing community, and to benefit from the experience of our upper-class students. However you may want to consider the EXCEL program. The EXCEL Program is an acronym for Entering Students Excelling through the Contribution of Experienced Leaders. The EXCEL Program connects first year students with mentors who are experienced campus leaders. Mentors live on the same floor as the first year students and are available to assist first year students with their transition into college. Students already assigned to the EXCEL program are NOT eligible to participate in the New Freshmen Online Room Selection.
Yes, however, there is a two week freeze on all room assignment changes once classes start. Before a change of rooms is authorized you must fill out a “Room Change Request” form which you can get from your Resident Hall Director (RHD). You may not change rooms with someone without going through the proper procedures. Don’t forget to consult whoever is paying the bills before making any changes as different rooms may have a different price!
While we never guarantee housing, our advice is: If you are interested, apply! We do prioritize students who get their materials in before the priority deadline in May for the fall semester.
