While space is available, transfer students will have the opportunity to reside in their desired community. There is limited availability in the North Campus Affiliated Residence Halls for transfer students, while space is available. USH operates Allegheny Hall, Brandywine Hall, Commonwealth Hall, University Hall, The Village Apartments, and the East Village Apartments.
Space is limited in certain communities and certain suite styles. For applicants who are interested in North Campus, there are a limited number of suite styles available at this time. The suite style that applicants select as their desired floor plan when applying is a preference, not a guarantee. It is likely that the North Campus communities and East Village Apartments will reach full occupancy for transfer students in early May. For further details, please review the Transfer Student Flowchart.
