» Housing Selection

Housing Selection is the online process for current undergraduate students to apply for and select a housing assignment for the following academic year. While the Office of Residence Life & First Year Experience accepts applications for on-campus housing year round, there are a couple of priority deadlines to keep in mind:

  • Fall Semester Housing Selection Applications for 2017-2018 will be available during the spring semester.

  • Interterm/Spring 2017 Semester Housing applications will be available November 1, 2016.

Complete the below steps in order to be considered for housing.

+ - Step 1: Complete Housing Application via Chapman Housing Portal

Submit your Housing Selection application using the Chapman Housing Portal link. To access the portal, you will need your Chapman username and password. If you do not have this information, you can contact the IS&T Service Desk.

+ - Step 2: Select a Preferred Roommate

You will be able to request preferred roommates through the Roommate tool in the Panther Housing Selection application. You may select a friend you already have in mind or use the roommate browsing tools to identify new potential roommates. Once you have found your preferred roommates, you must request them through the Roommate tool. In return, these requested roommates must log back into their application and confirm you as a roommate. You will then be linked and will be able to go through the selection process together. All preferred roommates must be confirmed by the time the application closes, Wednesday, March 30th. Here is a guide to confirming roommates.

+ - Step 3: Return to the Chapman Housing Portal at Given Time slot

You will receive an email with an assigned based on the RLLA preference/selection process you indicate in your application. Return to the Chapman Housing Portal at that time to selection your 2016-2017 on-campus housing assignment. You will select your room, assign any preferred roommates, and electronically sign your Residence Living License Agreement (RLLA). Our Selection Guide has detailed instructions on how to successfully select your housing assignment and to sign your RLLA.

Sandhu Residence Center - Living Learning Communities

The Living Learning Communities (LLCs) in Sandhu Residence Center offer students the option to
continue to participate in an academically focused community after their first year at Chapman
University. Each LLC clusters residents of the same college together to facilitate opportunities for
additional contact between peers of similar disciplines with the goal of enhancing learning beyond the
classroom. The LLCs offer specialized educational and social programs to continue to build and support a
vibrant academic community.

The LLCs are available for continuing students in the traditional double occupancy rooms and designated
single rooms in Sandhu Residence Center. Students selecting housing through the LLC selection process
will be given assignment options on the basis of their major and affiliated college. Selection of the
two-bedroom and four-bedroom suites will take place independently of LLC housing selection and will
not be included in the LLC housing selection process.
