It can be used by current on-campus residents who missed a deadline during the Returning Room Selection process or students who are living off-campus this semester and would like to pursue on-campus housing for the fall. The waitlist application process is not a guarantee of on-campus housing but is the best method to pursue on-campus housing at this time. The waitlist will be available through the AU Housing Portal.
