First-Year Student Housing Application

  • Floor plan/room availability is subject to change as students reserve and cancel rooms for 2019–20. The most up-to-date list of available floor plans/rooms is in the Housing Portal.  

    Please be aware that there are no current options for roommate groups of four. Please revise your roommate groups accordingly for room selection.

To begin a housing application to live on campus at Kennesaw State University, you must be fully admitted to KSU. You must be enrolled as a full-time student to remain in on-campus housing.

The Housing Portal is used to apply for on-campus housing. Students will log into the Housing Portal to submit an application and receive an assignment.

We are excited to open our application process for the 2019–20 academic year. Our application process is broken into three phases over the course of a few months:

If you apply for a Living-Learning Community (LLC), you will have a different timeline for Phases Two and Three. You will receive information about this if you are selected to join an LLC. Please see "Living-Learning Communities (LLC)" section below for more information.

  • Starting Friday, April 5, all students who have completed Phase One will be eligible to search for potential roommates in the Housing Portal. You are able to search for incoming students you already know, or search for ideal roommates you do not yet know by looking at your matches on the Housing Portal. 

    We encourage you to reach out to potential roommates to find out what community they wish to live in before deciding on a roommate. After inviting a student to join your "Roommate Group", they have seven days to accept or decline the invitation.
