Unassigned Student Application
Any student who remains unassigned upon completion of the housing assignment process and plans to return to Vanderbilt for the fall 2022 semester, should submit the Unassigned Student Application. In addition to available vacancies in suites/apartments, single and double rooms that come available due to housing cancellations from students who selected rooms but will not return to Vanderbilt will be assigned to students. Specific room types and building locations are not guaranteed; however, students can indicate preferences and make roommate requests on their application.
The Unassigned Student Application will be available in the Housing Portal beginning April 18, 2022 at 8 a.m. CDT. Applications received by April 22 at 6 p.m. CDT will receive priority for assignment. Seniority is factored into assignment decisions. Students who submit an Unassigned Student Application will not receive their housing assignments until July 31, 2022. Student who submit their Unassigned Student Application after June 30, 2022 at 6 p.m. CDT may not receive their room assignment until August 5, 2022.
All students who submit an Unassigned Student Application are guaranteed an on-campus housing assignment. Under no circumstances should students commit themselves to an off-campus property. The Office of Housing Assignments understands it can be stressful to not receive a housing assignment until late July; however, we have found that the longer we wait for housing cancellations to be submitted, the greater the likelihood of students receiving their preferred housing type/location.
