The first step to living on-campus for the Fall 2022/Spring 2023 academic year becomes available to all students - incoming Fall 2022 freshmen and transfer students as well as continuing UNT students - on Wednesday, October 13, 2021

  1. You will have already completed the first couple of steps for when the room selection process begins in early 2022. 
  2. The active fall 2022 application profile gives you immediate access to use eHousing RoomMate Matching to look for an ideal roommate for the coming year.

Spring 2022 Housing Application is OPEN!

The application for students planning to join the on-campus housing community for the Spring 2022 semester will be available through eHousing beginning on Wednesday, November 10th at 9:00 AM.

Within the Spring 2022 housing application process, students will agree to the Housing License Agreement, provide hall/room type and meal plan preferences, and make the Housing Application payment.

Students can research room types and meal plan options through the Housing and Dining websites respectively.  Rates for Spring 2022 room and board are calculated by dividing the 21/22 academic year rate for housing and meal plan options in half.

Students with a continuing Fall 2021 Housing assignment do not need to apply for Spring 2022 housing.

Mark your calendars to pick your Spring 2022 space!

Beginning at 9:00 AM on Monday, December 13th, students with a complete Spring 2022 application will be able to login to eHousing and select "Complete My Booking" to assign their room and meal plan from available options.  

Self-assign availability will close at 8 AM on Friday, December 17th.  Complete Spring 2022 application that are unassigned after that point will be assigned to available space by the UNT Housing Assignments Office.

eHousing Waiting Room

eHousing Waiting Room

So the Housing Application process runs smoothly, we have measures in place to manage the number of simultaneous users in eHousing.  As peak usage occurs for eHousing, you may find yourself in the eHousing Waiting Room.  Think of it like getting ready to purchase concert tickets or taking a number at a classy deli.  

Here is what you can expect: 

  1. You will be assigned a place in the line when you initally arrive at eHousing. 
  2. The number will decrease as you wait. 
    • The page will auto-refresh on a regular interval to update your place in line.
  3. Once you reach the front of the line, you will be able to log in to eHousing.  

It is important to keep the browser window open to maintain your Waiting Room session.  You do not need to refresh the browser to progress toward getting to the front of the line.  

We understand that everyone wants to make their housing arrangements as soon as possible and appreciate the patience that is necessary to ensure that eHousing can deliver that service as intended.  

Thanks, 

UNT HOUSING

 

 

Suite Bathroom Lock Information

In January 2015, UNT received a directive from the State Fire Marshal's Office (SFMO) to examine the bathroom locks in all residential bathrooms to determine if the locks met National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) Life Safety Code requirements for Hotels and Dormitories and if locks existed that did not meet those requirements a solution to eliminate the possibility of a person becoming trapped in the bathroom was required.  UNT conducted an evaluation of its residence hall bathroom facilities and found that our suite bathroom locks did not meet the NFPA code and we began the process to address the SFMO directive. 

UNT explored many alternatives to the bathroom door hardware and was unable to find any that met the NFPA code requirements and provided feasible individual room security.  Additionally, UNT was told that the State Fire Marshall's office was not aware of a locking alternative that would meet fire code directive and be approved.  Ultimately, UNT decided that removal of the bathroom locks on all suited bathroom doors was the only solution to comply with the State Fire Marshall’s directive.  UNT as well as every major university housing operation we have contacted have implemented similar steps to remove non-compliant locks. 

The process to remove all suite bathroom locking hardware began in the late summer of 2015 and was completed in all residence halls during the fall 2015 semester.  

UNT and UNT Housing remain committed to resident safety, security, wellbeing and success through numerous layers and measures of support.  Students should use this as an opportunity to engage their suite-mates in a dialog about how to develop boundaries, shared respect and measures to secure the privacy, safety, and security of all students and their friends who are sharing a suite.  College should teach our students the skills they need to meet new and different people, engage in meaningful communication, resolve differences, and negotiate shared solutions.  UNT Housing staff is encouraging these discussions through RA wing and Hall meetings and are trained and prepared to facilitate these discussions as well as mediate and resolve suite-mate issues.  

UNT and UNT Housing do not condone individual measures for residents to circumvent the State Fire Marshall's directive. Any such actions, if known to UNT Housing will result in judicial action from UNT Housing and if actions persist, University judicial sanctions.  Measures for residents to circumvent the State Fire Marshall's directive could potentially subject residents to further legal liability if their action were to cause harm to one of their suite-mates. 

UNT can allow students to utilize safety alarms on bathroom doors that do not impede the ability to exit the bathroom space but provide an audible alert upon entry of the bedroom space from the bathroom.  Students can find acceptable options at many retail locations and through online consumer sites – a generic search result for "door alarm" will produce several reasonably priced options for consideration. 

Students or parents with concerns may contact Housing Administration at housinginfo@unt.edu
 

Housing payments through myUNT account

All balances for UNT Housing room and board charges are posted to each student’s myUNT account with their tuition and fee charges for the semester.  

How does it work?

Following being assigned to a room, UNT Housing will transfer all charges to a student’s myUNT account for payment.  The total charge amount for the semester will be listed in the term summary as “Room and Board Charges”.  Students are able to review details of their account through their eHousing account. 

Accepted Financial Aid is directly applied to the semester UNT Housing balance by Student Accounting, following full payment of tuition and fees.  As a result, depending on the total amount of accepted aid for the semester, a student may have a remaining balance for UNT Housing room and board.  Remaining semester charges are able to paid in full or split in to three installment payment over the course of the long semester.  The installment plan for UNT Housing is applied automatically to any student with an unpaid room and board balance and there is no additional cost for the installment plan. 

How do I make a payment?

Payments for any remaining UNT Housing balance, following the application of accepted aid, must be made through a student’s myUNT account or through the Student Financial Services staff in the Eagle Student Services Center.  Housing does not accept payment for semester charges. 

What else should I know?

Students should be prepared to have out of pocket funds to make textbook and class supply purchases because tuition, fee and housing charges are all paid prior to a financial aid refund disbursement to the student.  If the student’s accepted aid for the semester is exhausted by the UNT term charges, there will not be remaining funds to be dispersed to the student. 

 

Students with questions about their financial aid award for the year should consult with Student Financial Aid and Scholarships

For assistance with budget planning or to inquire about loan programs options that are available to assist with textbook purchases, students should consult with the Student Money Management Center.
