The on-campus housing application process for the 2015-16 academic year is now open.
Students who want to live in one of the seven on-campus residential communities operated by Student Housing and Residential Life can now go online and complete the process. They need to log in to AccessUH on the main UH web page, then click on the myHousing icon.
To review the housing qualifications for each of the communities, click here. Students who want to tour any of the communities can go online and sign up. In addition, video tours are available for Cougar Place, Calhoun Lofts, Moody Towers and Cougar Village I and II.
On-campus living offers numerous advantages, including convenience. Residents are just a short walk away from their classes, campus activities, the library and dining halls. They don't have to worry about finding a parking space. It's also educational. Live-in faculty from different disciplines and fields live in most of the residential facilities. They work with housing staff to provide residents with fun and educational programs.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for those who have considered living on campus," said Don Yackley, executive director of Student Housing and Residential Life. "Our communities provide services and programs that will enrich the overall student experience at UH."
Students who want to live in Cambridge Oaks or Cullen Oaks, two UH-affiliated properties that are managed by outside private companies, should reach out directly to those communities for an application.
