Housing Information

As we enter the second half of fall semester, the Office of Student Housing is beginning to prepare for the upcoming academic year. Please be aware of the following deadlines:

  • All students who will be seeking on-campus housing for the 2018-2019 academic year must submit a $200 housing security deposit through CyberFriar between January 16 – February 16, 2018. 
  • The Class of 2019 must submit their Senior Housing Intention form by December 8, 2017 to indicate if they would like to live on campus during the 2018-2019 academic year.
  • ALL STUDENTS in the Class of 2020 & 2021, including commuter students, must complete the 2018-2019 Resident/Commuter Information Form via the RESIDENCE online housing system by February 16, 2018. If the form is not completed by this date, a hold will be placed on your account.  The form should take only a few minutes to complete. While we understand that your housing status may not be finalized at this time, we ask that you complete the form with what information you have currently and simply notify us at reslife@providence.edu with any changes that may arise.
  • Please remember that all students in the Class of 2020/2021 are required to live on campus unless you are a commuter.  Commuter status is defined by living at your legal parent or guardian’s permanent address.
