Application Process

The Office of Residence Life welcomes undergraduate, graduate, David A. Clarke School of Law, and University of the District of Columbia Community College students to consider calling University Housing home.
Below are instructions that you will need to follow to apply for housing.  We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Step 1: File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid FAFSA (domestic students only)
Complete your FAFSA to learn if you are eligible for financial assistance from the federal government.  Please see the Office of Financial Aid [located in the Administration Building (39), Room 101] for all inquiries on your FAFSA.

Step 2:  Complete Housing Application
Complete both pages of the University Housing Application + the University Housing Affordability Worksheet
The Application collects basic student information for assignment purposes. The University Housing Affordability worksheet is designed to help the student determine whether he or she can afford the $4200/semester housing fees after all other academic expenses have been considered.  Students should work with the Office of Financial and/or Student Accounts before submitting a completed application.
Students have a variety of options (federal financial aid, private loans, out-of-pocket funding or the university's Tuition Management System (TMS) to finance the cost of housing). 
Students wishing to take advantage of the Tuition Management System (TMS) payment option should visit udc.afford.com.  The confirmation email provided at the completion of enrollment should accompany the completed housing application.

Step 3: Submit Completed Application + Deposit
Once the University Housing Application is complete and funding options have been confirmed, students should submit a non-refundable deposit of $150.00 to the Cashier's Office.  All deposits (check or money order) can be made payable to the University of the District Columbia's Cashiers Office [Building 39, Rm. 201].  The Cashier's office will issue two receipts, one for the student's record, and the other to be attached to the University Housing Application.
A completed housing application includes both pages of the Application, required signatures from the Offices of Financial Aid and Student Accounts, and a copy of the email confirmation for TMS enrollment (if applicable).

Step 4:  Health Services
All full-time (12 credit hours) students must submit a completed Health Services Health History Form to the Health Center. Please contact University Health Services (202) 274 -5030  for health history form. The Health Center is located in Building 44, A33.  For more information regarding health services, please visit http://www.udc.edu/student_affairs/health_services.


Next Steps

  • Housing assignments are made based on the date that the completed housing application and deposit are received. No assignments are made until all required information is received.
  • Students will receive an email to the UDC email account with their housing assignment and roommate information so that they may contact their new roommate before the term begins.
