Housing Selection Information

Rising junior and senior students are not required to live on campus.  Rising juniors must obtain permission through the Off Campus Application Process to live off campus during 2018-2019.

Students are required to pay the $250.00 housing deposit by Friday, February 9, 2018 in order to be provided access to the selection system in the housing portal.  Payments are accepted through the Bursar's Office - credit cards may be used in person or over the phone: St. Thomas Hall Room 103 or (570) 941-4062.

Commuting students who wish to live on campus during 2018-2019 should contact the Office of Residence Life ( as soon as possible.

Students participating in housing selection are provided times randomly and will choose housing in groups of 4. Click here to see instructions on setting up a 4-person group and pictures of the lottery process.

A pre-lottery process is offered for students who wish to live in non-4-person apartments or houses.  These spaces range from 2-6 people.

All rising junior and senior students will select from the following halls/buildings:

  • Montrone and Pilarz Apartments
  • Mulberry Plaza and Madison Square Apartments
  • Linden Avenue Apartments (Dorothy Day, Katharine Drexel, and Elizabeth Ann Seton)
  • University Houses

Apartment facilities include bedrooms (singles and double), kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms.  University houses have single and double bedrooms with shared bathrooms, kitchens, and living spaces.
