I can’t access the Self Service Portal and get an error message.

Even though the Graduate Housing Application opens on Monday, April 1, if you are not able to access it, it’s probably because your profile has not yet migrated into our software. Our software is tied to Banner and once your school uploads their incoming students into Banner, you will populate in our software. It’s just a timing issue. Have you been issued a Yale NetID yet? Your school will be issuing you one which you’ll need to activate. An activated NetID and password is necessary to access the Self Service housing portal.

I read that the Graduate Housing Application opens on Monday, April 1 and Room Selection on the April 23/24/25.  I don’t really understand what that means. Please explain.

Yes, the Graduate Housing Application will open on Monday, April 1 at 9:00 am EST. It’s the first step in applying for housing and you can fill out the housing application anytime from April 1 right up to Room Selection. There is nothing more you need to do.

Room Selection is the important piece, but you don’t go into Room Selection unless you have filled out a housing application. Room selection will begin at 9am EST on April 23 and 24 for matched roommates and April 25 for all others.  Details will be included with your completed application. Room Selection is first come, first serve.

The Graduate Housing Application and Room Selection will remain open until all beds are filled.
