Spring Housing Selection


Housing Selection Information for Returning Resident Students


Please be sure to read all of the Housing Selection material completely. If you still have a question regarding the process after reading the Housing Selection materials, please contact the REH Office

During housing selection, students will be given the opportunity to sign up for a particular residential location.


To reside on campus and be guaranteed a housing space for the Fall 2014 semester, you must:

  • Be registered as a full time student for the Fall 2014 semester by May 9, 2014.
  • Pay the non-refundable $50 application fee to the Bursar Office.
    • Clear your entire bill with the College by July 18, 2014.
  • Certain residence hall rooms (i.e. Franklin Street and 225 Liberty) are charged at a higher rate and require a minimum number of persons in order to be selected.  (For example, 2 persons for doubles, 3 persons for triples, 4 persons for quad apartments, etc.).  Students are highly encouraged to select the roommate(s) and suitemates prior to housing selection.  Unassigned room vacancies will be filled by REH on a first come first serve basis
  • Commuter students wishing to live on campus next year must complete a Housing Application and submit a $50 non-refundable application fee to the Bursar Office.   This year, commuter students will be allowed to participate in housing selection as roommates being “pulled into” a suite.  If you do not have a current residential roommate, then you will need to come to “open commuter selection” by class status.
  • Franklin Street and 225 Liberty have been designated as "Premium Housing".  Only upperclassmen in good academic and judicial standing, with a cumulative G.P.A of 2.3 or above will be permitted to live in these locations.  Housing assignments will be placed under review if the student disciplinary actions in their student file.  Good citizenship and involvement with the TRUE and PULSE program are also criteria that will be reviewed as a part of your eligibility for housing.
  • The $50 non-refundable housing application fee must be paid to the Bursar Office beginning March 17, 2014 until April 24, 2014 in order to participate in housing selection.   Students must obtain a receipt of payment for their application fee and it must be attached to your housing application and brought to the housing selection process on Thursday, April 24th.  
  • Students assigned to housing for the Fall 2014 semester must clear their entire bill with Bloomfield College (tuition, housing, and related fees) by July 18, 2014 for the Fall 2014 semester and January 11, 2015 for the Spring 2015 semester. Failure to be cleared by July 18th or January 11th  will result in removal from housing and immediate placement on the waitlist. There is no guarantee that you will receive housing if you are removed from your housing assignment.
  • If a student accepts an assigned room via signature on the Terms of Agreement for the Fall and Spring semester (one academic year), and withdraws after July 18th before the start of the Fall 2014 semester, that student will be charged a cancellation fee of $500. Note -- Exceptions will be made for students assigned a room after July 18th and before the start of the Fall 2014 semester.  Students withdrawing after the first day of class will be penalized.  ALL WITHDRAWALS MUST COMPLETE A HOUSING WITHDRAWAL FROM LOCATED IN THE REH OFFICE.
  • VERY IMPORTANT -- To participate in housing selection, all residents must bring with them their completed housing application, receipt of their paid non-refundable $50 housing application fee, proxy form (if applicable), Financial Aid Confirmation form, and a valid student Bloomfield College ID. Failure to have necessary documents will prevent you from participating in housing selection.  
  • If you are in class during the pre-selected housing selection time frame, you will need to fill out the attached proxy form (refer to page 3).  The Office of REH will not provide a written excuse for you to miss your academic class.
  • Be sure to begin your financial aid paperwork with the Financial Aid Office prior to housing selection.  Your application packet is not complete until your FAFSA forms are filed with Financial Aid.  The priority deadline is March 14, 2014.
