The housing application process is now open to returning students. Review the Housing Handbook which will give you information for living on campus including eligibility, policies and procedures and rates.

Housing options will only be available in Hastings Hall.
To access the Summer and Academic Term housing applications, you will need to log into your SONIS account and use your Union provided UNI. Once you log into SONIS, on the left vertical menu, under ‘General‘, select ‘Home‘. On the far right of the screen, you will find the Housing Applications. Housing on campus is only available to current students and incoming students who have paid their deposit. Assignments are made by Union Housing on a first-come, first-serve basis.
