Housing Wait List Information

This notice serves as an update to those students currently on the on-campus housing waitlist for the Fall 2021 semester. Our ability to offer a space to a waitlisted student depends on how many cancellations we receive throughout the summer. Cancellation activity is an ongoing process and we will continuing the cancellation process for both returning students, and for new students who no longer plan to attend the Albany State University for fall 2021.

Please review the following information regarding the waiting list process.


Am I guaranteed on campus housing for the Fall 2021 semester?

Due to the high demand for on-campus housing, we are unable to guarantee you a room for the Fall 2021 semester.

How does the waiting list work?

As rooms become available due to cancellations from students with an existing room reservation, the resulting room space is offered to the next person on the waiting list.

How will I be notified if I receive a room assignment?

You will be notified via your ASU e-mail account.

How do I select a meal plan?

Once you receive your room assignment, you will need to log into the housing portal to select your meal plan and dining dollar option.

How many students on the waiting list will receive an on campus room?

Each time a student with a current room reservation cancels their reservation, a room becomes available. The Office of Housing and Residence Life will offer the available room to the student who is number one on the waiting list, and the remaining students will all move up one position on the waiting list. The number of rooms that become available depends on the number of students with an existing room reservation who cancel their housing. ASU Housing will continue to offer available rooms to students on the waiting list through the end of August 2021. Students should check their ASU e-mail account regularly for updates regarding housing availability.
