Contract Renewal for 2022-2023

Three students jumping happily with text that says continue your journey here

After living in University Housing this fall, you understand the advantages of being where other students congregate, share meals together in dining centers, and be close to student activities and other events. Now is the time to think about returning next year, and getting priority choice for your room assignment.

Our University Housing team is dedicated, committed and excited to offer a rich residential experience to all our Bearcats.

Advantages of UC Housing

  • The sense of community that develops in residence halls is an important and meaningful part of the college experience. Students meet new people and feel a sense of belonging.
  • A large range of accommodations creates affordable alternatives for varying lifestyles and budgets. No matter where you live on campus, you’re close to your destination, with peace of mind of having secure buildings with swipe access and guest check-in.
  • Flexibility for students working a co-op or studying abroad, which could be of considerable expense if a landlord disallows short-term leases or sublets.
  • Pay rent and utilities (inclusive) with one semester bill or a payment plan, which can be paid with financial aid.
  • Residents are more likely to be involved in co-curricular activities, have higher graduation rates and satisfaction with their university experiences.
  • All break periods are included in housing agreements for our popular apartment-style units.

Renewal for 2022-23 Begins Jan. 24!

University Housing communities can serve as home to over 6,500 residential students! We provide a complete residential program and look forward to continuing in the 2022-23 school year.

During contract renewal, returning residents have priority access to secure a 2022-23 housing assignment ahead of the incoming freshman class.

Upper class students are encouraged to choose the UC housing experience found in apartment buildings surrounding campus for independence with the added benefit of the University Housing program.

Note: Residents who are interested in renewal but do not apply during the contract renewal process will not have another opportunity to select a room until after the freshman process is complete, generally in late July.
