Applying for Housing
A housing file will be created for you after you have confirmed your
acceptance of admission by returning the "Enrollment Confirmation Form"
with payment of the required $250 admission deposit. Once the deposit
is received you will be sent a housing application that should be
completed and returned as soon as possible. The application must be
completed by the student.
Assignment of Rooms and Roommates
Specific room and roommate assignments are made in July preceding
the start of the fall term. This is done to allow students who meet
each other at the summer orientations the opportunity to request each
other as roommates. It also minimizes the number of revisions that have
to be made due to change in prospective students' plans. You will
receive your room and roommate assignments in early August, giving each
student's home address and phone number.
By returning the "Enrollment Confirmation Form" and paying the
required $250 deposit, your Samford enrollment is confirmed. The date
of your confirmation determines your priority placement. If you request
a specific roommate, the earlier of your or their priority date will be
used. Certain students with special needs, such as disability or
medical condition, may be given higher priority consideration.
