Wait List

This page is updated each week with current information - UPDATED 05/04/22

All wait list estimates are approximate. Student Apartments cannot guarantee apartment availability. For wait list policy see the Resident Handbook.  For rates please see Rental Rates. 

In order to be placed on the waiting list you must submit an application and pay the application fee.

Roommates are not allowed in University Village (Aspen & Cedar) apartments.  Please see Roommate policy for Medical Plaza.

To align with University Student Apartments’ mission, apartments will be assigned according to the following wait list priorities:

East and West Villages (Cedar Courts) applications are prioritized first by the following classification, and then by application date.

1. Student Family (Class standing not prioritized)

2. Post Doc/Medical Resident/Visiting Scholar Family

3. Single Graduate Student (roommates are not permitted)

4. Single Post Doc/Medical Resident/Visiting Scholar (roommates are not permitted)

The following wait list estimates apply:

Cedar 2 bedrooms: Student families 1-3 months estimated 

Cedar 3 bedrooms: Student families 2-3 months estimated

Estimated Wait Times for Single Students

Medical Plaza:  Due to the large number of applications we have already received for the upcoming 2022 summer and fall semesters, we are no longer accepting applications for Medical Plaza.  We anticipate that availability at the Medical Plaza will be limited in the coming year and look forward to opening our new graduate housing in Fall, 2023.

If you paid your application fee and submitted your application before March 22, 2022 we have your application on the waiting list.  We will email you if an apartment becomes available. 

We currently don’t have a timeframe for when we will begin to accept applications again. Availability will largely depend on the number of current residents that move-out this spring/summer. Please check this page periodically for updates. Checking here for updated information is the best way to stay informed.

Where am I on the Wait List? 

We are not able to provide exact numbers to students on the waiting list. We give priority to different groups of students and since we are adjusting the waitlist to reflect this priority, an exact position on the wait list is not something we can provide.

When will you contact me about an apartment?

We ask for a 30 day Intent to Vacate notice from our current residents.  We do not know much more than 30 days in advance what apartments we will have available to assign. Apartment assignments are generally made approximately 30 days in advance. Please review the estimated wait list times on this page.  All apartment assignments are made by email with a limited amount of time to accept.

Will you have an apartment for me on my desired date of occupancy?

Apartment availability is not guaranteed. Please refer to the estimated wait times on this page.  Single students wanting an apartment in August /July/June may have a longer wait since housing available for single students is limited and many students want to move in just before Fall Semester begins.  

When should I submit my application?

Student Apartments accepts applications and offers apartment assignments out year round as apartments become available.  We do not lease by the semester or year.

I am getting married, when can I move in?

Engaged couples are eligible to move in up to 30 days before their marriage date.
