Application Process

Dates To Remember for On-Campus Housing


    Identify in which Living-Learning Community you want to participate. If you have a roommate request, make sure you have the student’s correct Kent State email address.

    If you will be under the age of 18 when you submit your housing application, you and a parent or guardian will need to complete the KSUview permission process first. Please see KSUView/Parental Permission for more information.
  • Feb. 1:

    Apply for housing online as early as 8 a.m. Remember, you will need to pay a $40 application fee and $200 pre-payment before you can successfully submit your application.


If you do not have a roommate request, use the RoomSync Facebook application to search for a roommate (the link for RoomSync will be sent in your confirmation email to your Kent State email address after you complete your application). After you find someone you want to be your roommate, both individuals must update their housing applications.

  • MAY 1:

    Last day to notify Residence Services that you will not be attending Kent State in order to request your $200 pre-payment be refunded; refund requests after May 1 will not be honored.
  • JUNE 30:

    Last day to make changes or updates to your housing application; making changes to your application will not affect your original application submission date.

    Assignments will be made. After assignments are complete, all newly assigned residents will receive an email sent to their Kent State email account with their assignment information and roommate(s) contact information. Additionally, housing assignments can be viewed by logging back into the online application.
  • AUG. 25:

    New student move-in. Welcome to Kent State!
