Housing Selection


There are four application/selection periods during which students may select on-campus housing. Eligible students may enter any of the selection periods until they select a housing space. Those who select in one phase and later decide to participate in another phase, must notify the Office of Residential Living in writing to be dropped from the housing assignment originally selected.

You will be issued a unique Housing Selection Code to be used throughout the housing application and selection process. This code is sent to your Georgetown email before the housing application process begins. Your selection code can be found on your Housing-at-a-Glance page.

All housing applications and selection will be done online on your Housing-at-a-Glance page. You give a schedule period during which you can enter your application.

Housing Residency Requirement

Georgetown University requires that all undergraduate students who are regularly admitted and in full-time attendance at the University must live on campus during their freshman, sophomore and junior years, unless specifically exempted from the requirement by the Executive Director of Office for Residential Services or his/her designee. All students residing in on-campus housing are bound by the terms of the Housing Occupancy Agreement.

Junior students may opt to make their senior year their required year of housing using a swap option.  Rising juniors will need to make this application for the requirement year swap option in the fall of their sophomore year.  The Office of Residential Living will determine, based on occupancy projections, the number of junior students allowed to use the swap option.  Students granted the swap option will be required to select housing or will be assigned housing during their senior year. Students approved to swap their junior for senior year will not be granted an exemption from the residency requirement.  Students approved to attend part-time, including seniors fulfilling their third year residency requirement, are still required to live on campus.

Juniors studying abroad may count the semester(s) toward the requirement.  Sophomore transfers will be required to live on campus two years, while junior transfer students will be required to live on campus for their junior year.  Transfer students who meet the posted criteria, may apply for a housing exemption

Information on Selection System

For further information on how the online selection system works, view your Housing-at-a-Glance page. Under Housing Selection Information you will be able to click on (1) On-Line Selection Demonstration and (2) On-Line Description. It is important that you check these two web sites prior to the time for you to select housing so that you will be familiar with how it works.

Group Sponsor

Please note that if applying in a group, the members must select one group member as a Group Sponsor to represent the group. There can be no substitution of members after entering the application unless there are important extenuating circumstances that would require reforming the group. The group members who applied for a phase of selection (eligibility, apartment or residence hall selection) together must select together in that phase. In each phase, a new group sponsor may be named, but the sponsor must remain the same during that particular phase.

The dates for housing selection will be determined by July 1.
