First-Year & Transfer Students

Welcome home! Housing and Residence Life strives to create a home away from home where all ERAU students are able to thrive academically, professionally, and personally. As a new student to ERAU you might have a bunch of questions about living on campus. We encourage you to look at our website for pictures of the halls and floorplans. Check out the Frequently Asked Questions for some quick answers. Please do not hesitate to contact our office for any additional support or answers. We can be reached at prhouse@erau.edu or (928) 777-3744.

We will provide you with the single most important tip about living on-campus, APPLY EARLY. The on-line housing application at ERAUHousingApp.com and deposit are both needed for you application to be complete. The earlier you apply the better chances you have to choose the room and roommate you want. Transfer students (those who are transferring more than 28 credits) are not guaranteed housing and your application date will determine if you get housing.

First-Year Students

The First Year Experience program is designed to help all first-year students with the transition to college on academic, social, personal and educational levels. Staff are specially trained to handle first-year transitional issues. All first-year students under 21 years of age, without permanent residency in Yavapai County, and with less than 28 earned credit hours are required to live in University housing for their first full academic year. All FYE students are required to participate in the Dining Services meal program.

For more information, please see the ERAU Undergraduate Catalog.

New students (students who completed a New Student application) who decide not to attend ERAU are able to cancel their housing contract on or before June 1st without any financial penalty. New students cancelling their contract on or after June 2nd due to not attending ERAU forfeit their housing deposit. New students who are attending ERAU wishing to cancel their contract must submit a request to be released from their contract, see Terms and Conditions for break contract information and fees.

Transfer Students

We do not guarantee housing to transfer students (those transferring more than 28 credits); however, with that said we have some spaces set aside for transfer students. Because space is limited, we typically assign transfer students to the first available space; however we do our best to match roommates according to major/college and room-type preference indicated on your application. Application date is the driving factor for space, it is imperative that transfer students complete their application early. The first round of transfer room assignments occurs in April. Transfer students will be notified via ERAU e-mail of their housing status in early May.
