How to Apply

Applications for the 2024–25 academic year are now being accepted on a rolling basis. 

This housing option is for single graduate students.

(Please note this location cannot accommodate families; for family housing, please consider University Village, located adjacent to Albany Village.)

You can apply via the housing portal. Once you have signed in, choose the Single Student Apartments option.
