Welcome, current UNC Asheville students! We are excited that you are choosing to stay on-campus, or return to campus, for the upcoming academic year.

Housing Application Process for Current Residential Students

Current residential students can reapply for 2022-2023 housing, beginning March 1st.

 

On March 1st, please log into One Port, select “Campus Housing”, “Housing Portal”, and under “Continuing Student Process”, choose “apply for on-campus housing.”

Please note: A new version of Safari, realeased in September 2020, is not compatible with our housing software. Please use Google Chrome to complete your housing application and subsequent room selection.

Details and Deadlines

  • The reapplication process will begin on March 1.
  • Students who want to retain their current room, can do so at the time of reapplication. Please note that some rooms are not eligible for retention.
  • Room selection will begin March 15. Students who do not select a room during the selection period will not be guaranteed housing for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Re-Application Process

  • In order to participate in room selection, all students must have a completed housing application on file. Applications completed by March 11, will receive an email from our office with your room/meal plan selection time.

Roommate Groups

Creating a Roommate Group

If you have another UNC Asheville student you wish to live with, you can create a Roommate Group. The benefit of a roommate group, is that one person in the group can make the room selection for everyone who has accepted the invitation to join the group, during room selection. It is recommended that the person with the earliest selection time, be the one to select for the group. Important information regarding Roomate Groups:

  • To invite someone to your group, the student must have already applied for housing.
  • You can only belong to one Roommate Group at a time.
  • When you are invited to join a group, you will get an email and must accept or decline the invitation. If you do not accept, you are not part of the group.
  • A Roommate Group does not guarantee you housing.
  • A Roommate Group does not hold a space for you with others in your Roommate Group.
  • During room selection, if you are part of a Roommate Group, you will only be able to see suites with enough room to accommodate your entire group.
  • If one person in the Roommate Group selects housing on their own, the rest of the group members will not be able to select housing and must leave the group.
  • First time freshmen cannot live in the Woods or the Village, so if you are in a roommate group with a new, incoming freshmen, you will not be able to live in those areas.

 

What Happens Next?

  • All students with a completed application by noon on March 11 will receive an email with your designated selection time.
  • Room selection time slots are based on the date you completed your housing application and contract.
  • Your selection time is your first and best opportunity to assign yourself to a room.
  • Students must select their room and meal plan by 11:59 pm on March 31. Those who do not participate in the room selection, will have their application cancelled.

Please see below for more details on the Room Selection Process.

You can view your assignment and roommate information at any time by logging into OnePort, selecting “Housing Portal”, “Profile Information”, and “View My Roommate(s).”

Any cancellation of your contract for an unapproved reason will result in breach of contract and other charges. Learn more about cancellation of your housing assignment.

Selecting a Roommate/Suite Mate

During room selection, you will be able to see student information, including name, age, and the answers to their roommate preference questions, of students who are already assigned to a bed space and/or suite, to assist you in choosing a roommate. If you are trying to live with a current student, please verify with the student that they have a current vacancy in their room/suite. You can then search by available spaces in the room/suite. Please keep in mind that other students are going through the room selection process, and can assign themselves to any available space on campus, that is open to them during selection.
