Current Student Housing Selection

Current Student Housing Selection

Housing Selection for Current Students

This page applies to students who are currently taking classes. It contains information on selecting a housing assignment for the next academic year and on how to change room assignments during the current academic year.

Your agreement for college housing is for the ENTIRE academic year and may not be broken between the fall and spring semesters.

Room Selection for the Next Academic Year

Unlike new students coming to Delhi for the first time who are assigned rooms and roommates, returning students select their own housing assignments and roommates. Students who do not participate in the process will be assigned a room on a space available basis.

Housing Selection Summary

  1. Pay a $100 housing deposit at Student Financial Services or through Bronco Web by April 8, 2020
    If you are experiencing exceptional circumstances resulting in a problem paying the deposit, you may request a housing deposit waiver. Go to “Forms” on the Residence Life website (
