Step 3 - Housing Intent Survey - Only those not returning to housing

The University is always looking for ways to improve all services for students. Because of this, our office has to track the reasons students decide not to return to housing, which can only be done by students completing the housing intent form. However, this form is only for those students who are deciding not to return to housing, and is only available during the times of the survey, which will be emailed to all students who do not pay the non-refundable housing deposit by March 24th.

Step 4 - Online Roommate Matching Process - Wednesday, April 2nd - Thursday, April 3rd (4/2/14 - 4/3/14)

Those residents who have paid their Housing Deposit and completed the housing application by the due dates listed may choose roommates*. You may request up to 5 roommates (max group size is 6). By agreeing to be a matched roommate group, you agree to give your group permission to assign you to housing. Please discuss housing options within your group in the event that you cannot get into the hall you want, or have to break into smaller groups.

*Note: There may be other factors that could potentially prevent a resident student from participating in this process. You will not be able to find any student who is:

  • NOT a current residential student.
  • NOT eligible due to not paying the deposit by 3/24/14.
  • NOT eligible due to not completing the housing application by 4/1/14. However, if a student has paid the deposit and hasn't completed the application, once an application has been completed, the student will automatically be eligible to participate in roommate matching.
  • NOT eligible to due to a judicial hold.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 5 - Online Room Selection - Friday, April 4th - Sunday, April 6th (4/4/14 - 4/6/14)

Those residents who have paid their Housing Deposit and completed the housing application by the due date listed may choose a room* as of or after their start time on 4/4/14 - 4/6/14. Historically, there are not enough spots for all students who decide to participate in housing selection. There will be a wait list. Those students who typically do not get to select housing either missed their earlier housing selection time or have earned the lowest amount of points. Students will be placed on a waiting list based on their earned point totals (roommate groups cannot be accommodated from the wait list, as it is based on individual point totals). We have always been able to accommodate all students that are on the wait list, but not necessarily with your preferred roommates or in your preferred hall.

When I try to log into eWeb, I cannot log in. How do I log in if my password isn't working?
Please contact the HelpDesk at 860-465-4346 from Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm. The HelpDesk worker will be able to assist you.

I logged into eWeb. But, when I click "Housing & Residential Life", I don't see the housing application. All I see is a white page that reads, "Thank you. For security reasons, we recommend that you exit completely and close this browser". What should I do?
That window is supposed to open under the application window and should remain open until you finish your application.  First, please disable your pop-up blocker. Click "Housing & Residential Life", if the white window pops up saying to close for security reasons, minimize that window and the application may be under it.

Annual Housing Contract

Eastern has moved to an annual housing contract. Any student who requests housing for the fall semester (by paying a non-refundable housing deposit, submitting the housing intent survey with the intent to return [for current residents only], or by submitting a housing application), have only until May 31, 2014 to cancel your request for housing to be released from the contract. After that date, a student can submit a Housing Contract Cancellation Request Form, which will be reviewed by a committee to determine whether the student will be let out of the contact. If a student is not released from their contract, the student will remain assigned to housing for the academic year and all housing charges will apply. Click here for more information.
