Students enjoying their time in their dorm

Welcome home again! As a returning student, we thank you for continuing to live on-campus. Housing and Residence Life strives to create a home away from home where all ERAU students are able to thrive academically, professionally, and personally.

Our office handles all maintenance requests. If a light burns out or you have another maintenance concern, please tell your RA, e-mail us or call us at 928-777-3744.

We provide emergency response 24/7. If you are in need of assistance please contact the HRL emergency line at 928-777-3790 and listen to the prompts. You can also contact Campus Safety at 928-777-3333.

Housing rules and regulations are outlined in the Student Handbook found at the Dean of Students page.

Room Selection

Who Gets to Live on Campus and Where

Housing is a finite resource and we do our best to accommodate all of you who want to live on campus. With that said, the application date is the fairest way possible to determine who will be able to live on campus and who will be put on a waitlist. Please note, that for the past few years, all of those students who were initially put on the waitlist were offered on-campus housing.

Terms and Conditions

Please be sure to read and be familiar with the Terms and Conditions found on the right side of this page. Contracts are for the academic year (Fall and Spring) or Spring only.

Application Dates

Whether you get a space on campus or are put on the waitlist is based on your application date. All applications are done online, and you will use your ERNIE credentials to sign in. Applications for Summer and next Fall/Spring are available in the Spring semester. Exact dates/processes are emailed to all current ERAU students and will be updated on this website.

2024-25 Application Dates

Application completion date is the deciding factor for who gets a room on campus for returning students, so be sure to apply as soon as you are able to do so.

All applications are in Housing and Meal Plans under ERNIE tools or click here.

The May 1st deadline will override what is stated in the original 2024-2025 Terms and Conditions due to the housing application delay.

Online Room Selection

Students who apply early enough to get a space in the halls will be assigned a specific date/time when they can begin to choose their room. Graduate students/Seniors will have first access to online room selection, and then Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen.

More information about roommate selection will be emailed to students. Students are able to select roommates between Tuesday, 4/09/24 and Sunday, 4/14/24 for next year. Preference will be given for students who group together so they can fill an entire unit. Any roommate/suitemate preference must be mutually requested, and roommate/suitemates must have applied early enough to get a space in the halls.

Summer 2024 Application and Room Selection

Applications for Summer 2024 are currently available under Housing and Meal Plans under ERNIE tools. We will assign rooms for Summer the week of May 6, and Summer A move-in is May 12. Any student living in the halls for Spring and having a Summer A housing contract can stay in their room between the two contracts and must move to their Summer assignment on May 12. 

Waitlist Students and Process

Spaces are provided based on application date and time. The waitlist is managed in the same fashion, with those who applied earliest offered a space first. If students are on the waitlist, they are able to cancel their contract without penalty prior to accepting a room assignment. As a space becomes available, HRL will use ERAU e-mail to offer the next person on the waitlist. Once offered, students have 72 hours to accept the space. If students decline the space or fail to accept, their contract is automatically cancelled and they will be removed from the waitlist. See the Terms and Conditions found on this page under Housing Forms.

At any point in time, students can contact the HRL office to find out their status on the waitlist. HRL will communicate with students via ERAU e-mail with updates throughout the semester and summer as to their waitlist status.
