Housing Selection

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 2024 and 2025 students must reside on campus or be approved for Commuter Status. If you want to apply for Commuter Status, please email Kevin Hillery at khillery@providence.edu. Commuters must be living at their home address. Class of 2023 students who have not yet completed their Senior Housing Intention Form should contact Kevin Hillery.

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, but only students who will be living on-campus in the fall or for the full year will participate in Housing Selection. Fall Study Abroad students should work directly with Kevin Hillery to complete the housing process for Spring 2023. 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.
