"Living on campus is an experience you do not want to miss. You have your whole life to live by yourself but you only have a short time to live with different people and make long lasting friendships!"
Apply to live on campus
Auburn’s 32 residence halls are home to about 4,800 students, with about 3,450 bed spaces reserved for first time freshmen. While living on campus is not required of or guaranteed to first year students, our goal is to accommodate as many first time freshman students who wish to live on campus as possible. Accepted students interested in living on campus during the 2018-19 academic year are encouraged to apply beginning October 9, 2017.
Because of the high volume of applications submitted, applications received after January 15, 2018 are more likely to be placed on standby status. Standby status indicates that all spaces are currently filled with students that have received assignments. As a space becomes available, usually due to cancellation, the applicant currently on standby status with the earliest timestamp/housing application date will be assigned to that space. Assignments will be sent to all students’ TigerMail accounts on or around the first or fifteenth of each month until the first day of fall classes.
Students may change preferences in their application until March 1, 2018. Students who apply for housing and later change their mind about living on campus or attending Auburn are encouraged to cancel their housing application in a timely manner to enable us to make housing assignments to applicants on standby status and receive their refund if applicable.
Traditionally, most upperclass students choose to reside off campus. As a result, a limited number of bed spaces are set aside in four residence halls for upperclass students. In addition, student athletes and upperclass students who are members of Auburn’s 18 Panhellenic sororities are reserved bed spaces in South Donahue or the Village respectively.
