How to Apply for Housing

Before you Start...

The date your contract and deposit are received is the “priority date” for your assignment. The UNC Housing & Residential Education Office will assign you into a space for the academic year.  Hall and room placements are based on your “priority date” and space availability.  

error Students must pay the $200 Admissions Enrollment Confirmation Deposit before they can apply for housing.

Student housing assignments will be made in the following order:

  • Roommate preference stated on contract
  • Residential learning community selected on contract
  • Rank the housing tier preferences on the contract from 1-6
  • All assignments are based on availability.
  • Once you have completed your housing application, you can log into the Housing and Dining Contract on June 1, 2017, to view your room assignment.

Online Application Instructions

1. Activate your URSA account. You will need to use the same username and password from your URSA account to log into the Housing and Dining Contract.

2. Review the prices for the various residence halls with the different meal plan options.  Housing costs are based on tier pricing.  Tier 1 is the lowest and Tier 6 is the highest.

3. Decide if you want to be in a Residential Learning Community. You need to be declared with specific majors to be eligible for the community. Special interest living communities do not need a specific major - just an interest in the theme of the living community.  The residential learning communities are located in specific residence halls and may also be on specific floors.

4. After you login, read the short introduction and click Enter to start the contract process. Before you can continue, you will need to agree to the Housing Contract Terms and Conditions. If you are under age 18 at the time you agree to the terms and conditions, it is inferred by submitting your contract that your parents are also in agreement.  Review your student information for accuracy. If corrections are necessary, please contact the Registrar’s Office at 970-351-2231.
Note: Address corrections can be made by logging into your URSA account.

5. If you have any special needs or medical requirements that the Housing & Residential Education office should consider, please note them in the ADA portion of the housing contract.  Please contact the Disability Support Services Office at 970-351-2289 to discuss your needs and/or requirements to live on campus.  You will need to mail an explanation and supporting documentation to the UNC Disability Support Services Office, Michener L-80, Campus Box 139, Greeley, CO 80639.

6. Provide the required $100 deposit by selecting either Pay Later or Pay by Credit Card. If you choose to pay later, your contract will be incomplete until you either pay the deposit or submit a request for a waiver through the Admissions Office. If you pay the deposit, a payment confirmation e-mail will be sent to your UNC e-mail address once your contract is received in our department. If you do not receive a payment confirmation e-mail, please contact us to make sure your payment was received.

7. You can enter a roommate request on the housing contract.  In the roommate preference field, enter the correct spelling for their first name, last name and Bear number. If you do not have a roommate preference, the Assignments Coordinator will match you with another student by using the roommate matching criteria on the housing contract.

8. You can login into the Housing contract on the Housing webpage on or after June 1, 2017, to view your room assignment and roommate information. Any room changes made after the initial room assignment have been completed, will be done on a first-come, first-serve basis as spaces become available. If you are not able to move by the time the residence halls open in August, please speak to your Hall Director for room moves.

9. For students that want to return to the residence halls for the following academic year, you will log into the Housing and Dining Contract during the Call Dibs/Claim Your Space campaign in early February. 

10. Requests are honored on a priority date availability basis. If you have questions regarding on-campus housing, please contact us at 970-351-2721.
