Housing Selection

2023/24 Academic Year

The Housing Selection process takes place in the spring for the upcoming academic year. In order to participate in Housing Selection, students must pay the Housing Security Deposit, submit a Housing Application, and, if desired, form Roommate Groups. Please see below for more details about this year’s process.

All Class of 2026 students must reside on campus or be approved for Commuter Status. Class of 2025 students can live on campus, apply for Off-Campus Housing Status or Commuter Status. If you want to apply for Commuter or Off-Campus Housing status, please email reslife@providence.edu. Commuters must be living at their home address.

Students who have been approved for Fall or Spring Study Abroad must make a housing deposit regardless of being on campus for only one semester. Click here for more information about Study Abroad.

Requests for Residential Accommodations​ should be submitted on time for full consideration. More information is available on the Residential Accommodations page.

Important Dates

Housing Security Deposit

  • The Housing Security deposit of $200 is to be paid between March 21st and April 5th on your CyberFriar​ account.
  • The $200 Housing Security Deposit reserves a student’s space in housing selection as well as secures funds for any damages (building, floor, and/or room) that are incurred during the current academic year. Students who accumulate building, floor, and/or room damages le​ss than $200 will be credited the difference. Students whose damages exceed $200 will be billed for the remaining balance.​​
  • The Housing Security Deposit is required by any rising Sophomore, Junior, and Senior student wishing to live on campus for the upcoming academic school year. Incoming first-year students do not need to pay a Housing Security Deposit.

How do I submit the $20​​0 Housing Security Deposit?

  • Student logs onto CyberFriar.
  • Select Student Services.
  • Select Bursar’s Office.
