Housing Application

At the University of Hartford, we want you to feel comfortable in your residence hall.

That’s why students fill out our housing application each year to determine the right fit. We try to accommodate special requests and roommate wishes. The housing application is now available!

In order to live on campus:
  • If this will be your first time living on campus as a returning student, you'll need to submit your housing deposit. If you are a new student, your housing deposit was incorporated in your main deposit to the university.
  • All students must maintain full-time status, carrying at least 12 credit hours per semester
  • All students must be compliant with the State of Connecticut meningococcal meningitis regulations prior to moving into their assigned housing

You are required to have a meal plan while living on campus. You can learn more about meal plan options and dining services here at and see meal plan costs on the Bursars website.

Housing Application

Fill out your housing application
  1. Log into UHart’s Self-Service Center using your ID and password

  2. Select the Student tab at the top left side of the page, then Residential Life. This will take you to the housing portal, where you can fill out your housing application.

If you have any issues logging into the Self-Service Center, please contact the Center for Student Success at 860.768.4999 or

The priority deadline is Jan. 6. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis after the priority deadline. 

If you do not request a roommate, we will match you based on the profile questions you answer inside your housing application, so make sure you answer them accurately.

For transfer students, we work to house you with other transfer and non-transfer students who have similar majors, interests, and responses to the profile questions inside the housing application. If you have a roommate you would like to request, you and your desired roommate must contact our office at to request to live together.

The housing application is now available!

If you are currently living on campus, you will be able to re-apply for housing in the spring semester through our housing selection process. These deadlines will be updated every year, but are usually similar from year to year. We have two rounds of our housing selection process to make sure that all students have a chance to sign up for housing.


Room Changes

We will be reviewing room changes in January once we have assessed vacancies. Any information related to room changes and the process will be communicated to students through email. If a student has a question about a room change they can email and we will do our best to work with people on their requests.  


What if I do not want to live on campus?

All full-time undergraduate students must live in campus housing and participate in a meal plan during their first two years at the University, barring exceptions.

I chose housing through housing selection, but now I want to move off campus or withdraw from the University. Can I get my $150 room reservation deposit back?

You can receive your $150 housing deposit back if you notify the Office of Residential Life in writing and you do not have an outstanding balance on your University account. If you have a balance, the $150.00 housing deposit will be applied to your account balance instead.
