How to Reapply

 

 

Housing is a hot commodity on ASU’s campus so proper preparation for re-application is critical. The housing registration process for returning residents is hosted within the My Housing portal. To be ready for this process you must prepare by doing the following:

1. Make certain that you have approximately $55 on a MasterCard, AMEX, Discover or Visa card. If you do not have one readily available, an idea may be to purchase a prepaid card for this purpose. Students also may not pay at the University cashier’s window or through the online system. This will create stress for you and is not advised.

2. If you are a student who previously moved out of housing for any reason and desire to come back home, make sure that you have approximately $270 on one of the above approved cards. This will serve as your application fee and deposit. A deposit is required if you breached your housing agreement while previously in housing or if you were refunded your deposit.


3. For summer semester all returning students must have registered for 6 or more credit hours at the time of housing registration. Fall and Spring registrants must have registered for 12 or more credit hours at the time of housing registration.

4. Make certain that you do not have financial, suspension or judicial holds. These holds will prevent you from successfully registering your housing.

5. Make certain that you understand the building classification rules below:
 

Non-First Time Freshmen Halls (FTF students are not allowed to reside in this halls)
 

Hall Classification RequirementsGender Requirements
Hall 1Returning Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors Females Only
Hall 2Returning Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, SeniorsCo-Educational by floor
Hall 3Students w/24 earned credit hours Co-Educational by floor
Hall 4Students w/ 55+ earned credit hoursCo-Educational;
Non-traditional students
Hall 6Returning Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, SeniorsCo-Educational by Wing

 

• Please note that students desiring to reside in Hall 3 must have earned a minimum of 24 credit hours: the classes must have been passed with an acceptable grade.
• Student desiring to reside in Hall 4 must have accumulated 55+ credit hours towards graduation. Classes used to determine 55+ credit hours must have been passed and credited toward graduation.


6. If you have a roommate preference, plan together. Decide on when you will each go into the portal and where you desire to reside. This makes getting into spaces that you both qualify for and desire to live much easier. Please remember that both residents must qualify, at the time you register, for the hall in which you desire to live.

If you do not have a roommate preference, think about the type of roommate you would like to have. The portal offers you the opportunity to search for compatible roommates. You may even send a potential roommate a message prior to selecting that roommate. Another feature is that you may search within a room to see what type of person is currently occupying the space before selecting your bed space.

7. READ, READ, READ…We stress that you read all of the instructions provided to you in flyers, notices and within the portal itself. Having working knowledge makes life easier. The instructions in the portal are very thorough and meant to help you register with ease.

8. Notices will be posted within your residence halls anytime between March 1 and April 15. Because we require you to be registered for classes, the housing registration process typically takes place after class registration. Make sure to read the notices for any updates for critical information that could affect your housing plans.

9. Be aware…the portal can only host so much activity at one time. Being in a virtual line is much like being in a physical one. Once someone exits the portal another student may enter. The first hour of the portal opening is usually pretty hectic, so unless you are adamant about a specific space, you can be strategic. For instance, one very smart student found that the portal was full, so he set his alarm and went to sleep. When his alarm awakened him he applied for his housing without a problem. He had no stress and had the housing he wanted. This is not a recommendation that you do this, but is mentioned to only serve as an example of how you can manage your time and stress when applying for housing.

10. Once you have completed the process, simply print your status page and file it away for check in…you are done!
