Applications received for the future Fall Semester are held until the end of April when the assignment process begins for Fall applications. It is necessary to wait until April to assign apartments because we need to receive vacate notices from our current residents before we know which apartments will be available at the end of August.
Applications received for the future Spring Semester are held until mid-November for processing. It is necessary to wait until mid-November to assign apartments because we need to receive vacate notices from our current residents before we know which apartments will be available in January.
Applications requesting immediate move in are processed as received. Applicants will be contacted by the Lewis and Clark Village Office Manager about the assignment via the UM student email, and housing reservations can be viewed on the myHousingPortal.
Inquiries about the status of your application may be sent to Cheryl Greely.
