Applications can be completed online. All applications must be received by the specified deadline. Since housing selection times are determined by lottery, there is no concrete benefit to to applying earlier in the application window. All students, so long as they apply by the annual deadline, have an equal chance at housing. After the lottery is complete, remaining rooms are selected on a first come, first served basis.

For the 2023-24 academic year, a lottery for applicants will be used to generate selection times. When an applicant’s selection time arrives, they can log in to StarRez (the same site as the initial application) and select an apartment. If we have more applicants than we have spaces available, this lottery will also determine the order of the waiting list. Your housing application must be received by the Office of Residence Life to enter the lottery.

For the 2024-25 academic year, there is no housing application fee.

If an applicant is accepted to another institution and they choose not to attend Georgetown they will not be charged a cancellation fee. If an applicant remains a registered student at Georgetown, they will be charged a $400 cancellation fee if they cancel after the cancellation deadline. This will be posted to your student account. As of the Monday after move-in day you will be held to all the terms of the agreement.

No. Deferred students should notify the Office of Residence Life of their deferral. The $150 application fee will guarantee a space for the following year.

In past years, we have been able to accommodate almost all students who requested housing, but we cannot guarantee housing to students. Students on the waitlist should feel free to contact the Director of Student Housing for an update on their status and information about off-campus housing resources.

Yes. If you are assigned a space you will then need to pay any applicable fees.

Students may select roommates as part of the housing application process. If you do not select your roommate(s), then you will be assigned a roommate based on the criteria provided in your housing application.
