Housing Assignment Process

Salem State University provides on-campus housing to over 2,000 undergraduate day students. 

Resident students are guaranteed three years of housing, as long as they complete the process for housing deposits and room selection correctly by the designated deadlines. Resident students who leave campus housing at any point during their three years are no longer guaranteed housing, should they wish to return, they must fill out the housing interest form linked below. 

Resident students who leave campus housing to study abroad are allowed to participate in the housing process and participate in the housing lottery. 

Upon the recommendation of the Salem State Student Government Association in the spring of 1999, students with mobility impairment are exempt from the lottery.
