Applying for Commuter Exception to Housing Requirement

Getting Ready to Complete Your Housing Application

The housing application process lives within the eHousing student portal.  You will login to eHousing with your EUID and password to apply for upcoming terms as those applications periods become available. You do not have to be admitted to the university before starting an application for housing.   

Before you start an application, we suggest the following:

  • Take a look at the information about each of the residence halls for a general description of the building, room types offered, and pictures of rooms and floor plans
  • Consider one of our Living Learning Communities for an immersive academic and living experience
  • Check out meal plan options available through Dining Services
  • Consider the rates for both Housing and Dining 
  • Carefully review the Housing License Agreement to thoroughly understand the commitment that you are making by completing an application to UNT Housing
    • Due to the cancelation terms and the binding nature of the License Agreement, we want you to fully understand the agreement you will sign during the application process.
  • Note that an application payment is required to complete the application and secure your selected hall and room preference.

Taking time to understand this information prior to starting your application will help you make the best decision for your future.

Assignment Queue applications

To best serve students that still need to complete a Housing application, Housing will utilize an Assignment Queue (AQ) application process at the point in the application period that hall/room-type preference selection is limited due to high volume of already submitted applications.  At that point, students applying for Housing are automatically directed to the Assignment Queue. 

The Assignment Queue allows students to complete a housing application without making a hall/room-type selection.  Doing so will establish a position on the AQ based on the date and time the application is completed by making the application payment.

Student are assigned from the Assignment Queue to remaining available space within Housing based upon the order in which they completed an AQ application.

To accommodate the first year UNT residency requirement, freshmen on the AQ will receive priority assignment in residence halls. 


Waitlist for Returning and Transfer Students

Beginning on February 7, returning and incoming transfer students may submit a housing application for Fall 2024/Spring 2025.

Please note the information below as it relates to the Housing Waitlist:
  • Available space for upperclassmen will be evaluated regularly leading up to the start of the Fall 2024 semester.

  • Completion of a Waitlist application does not guarantee that a housing assignment will be completed.

  • Availability to assign upperclassmen applications will be contingent on addressing freshmen housing applications as a priority.


Applying for Commuter Exception to Housing Requirement

There is an exception to the first-year housing requirement policy for commuter students that can be found here: UNT Policy 07.008.  If you intend to commute as a first year student, we require you to submit completed paperwork for verification of exemption from the first-year live-on requirement.  It is recommended that you review the information about properly completing the commuter exemption process
