New Students

New students are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, once the following criteria have been met:

  • Acceptance to Lee University
  • Completion of a Residence Hall application
  • Payment of the housing reservation deposit.

New students will receive an email after submitting their housing application with instructions on how to request a roommate.

Students interested in on-campus housing must complete a Residence Hall Application through the online housing portal, as well as pay the $200 housing deposit. This deposit is required to reserve a housing assignment for the first semester on-campus. In subsequent semesters, it will be held as a roll-over deposit. When a student graduates, moves off-campus or leaves the University, the deposit will be applied (within sixty days after residence halls close of the applicable semester) to the student’s account to cover any unpaid balance or a refund will be issued.

New students who paid the deposit but no longer plan on attending are eligible to receive a deposit refund at their request. To request this, the Housing Deposit Refund form must be submitted by the deadlines listed on the form.

Priority for housing assignments is based on the date of the completed application and deposit. Residence Hall assignments will be sent via email in February, April, May - July for the Fall semester and in November for the Spring semester. The University is not able to guarantee assignment requests. However, every request is given the best possible consideration.

Returning Students

Returning students participate in the annual housing lottery to reserve a residence hall assignment for each academic year.

Summer housing is available to an eligible group of students on-campus. If you need summer housing, please contact our Assistant Director of Housing for assistance
