Housing Intent Options - Dormitories

Same Room Signup  

Students living in a room have first priority to stay in that room for the next academic year. They must select their room during the Same Room Signup Selection period in March and be in good academic and financial standing with the University to sign a new housing contract. 

You will be directed to Self Service in March to log in and re-select your room.

Open Room Selection (Transfer)

Current residents participating in Open Room Selection will be able to select a NEW dorm building and/or a DIFFERENT room for next academic year. Selection occurs after the Same Room Signup selection process but before any new applicants are assigned into vacant rooms. 

The Open Room Selection process allows a student to see all the available rooms (with room sizes and associated room prices) within the building of his or her choice.

You will be notified when to visit Self Service in late March to log in and choose your new room from the “room selection” bar 

Summer Housing

Current residents of the Graduate Dormitories with a signed contract for the next academic year can apply for summer housing.  Students requesting housing for June, July and August, will be assigned to their current dorm rooms for the allotted weeks over the summer.  Students staying through summer and into the next academic year, but changing rooms, will be notified by Yale Housing when to move into their new room assignment during Transfer Week in July.  

Students without a contract for the next academic year must vacate at the end of the current contract, Sunday, May 28, 2017.

In-Room Storage and Rent Reduction*

Students staying in the same room from spring semester through the next academic year, but leaving campus for the summer, are eligible for a 50% discount on the summer rent to leave their belongings in their rooms. This discount is only applicable during the summer (June, July, and early August).

To qualify for in-room storage and rent reduction, students must have a signed valid contract with Yale Housing for the next term and return their room keys to the Resident Coordinator or the Yale Housing office.

*Students who are not returning for the next academic year are not eligible for this program.

Contract Signing Week

After selecting a room, returning students must sign their housing contract in Self Service during Contract Signing Week. If you do not sign your contract, your room assignment will be canceled and will become available for new applicants.
