First-Year Student Housing Application

In order to live on campus at Kennesaw State University, you must be fully admitted to KSU before you are eligible to begin a Housing Application. 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 2019–2020 academic year. Our application process is broken into three phases over the course of a few months:

  • Phase One: Application, License Agreement, Fees. Opens Monday, January 14 at 10:00 AM EST.
  • Phase Two: Roommate Selection. During this phase, you will search for and connect with roommates. Opens Friday, April 5 (Specific Time TBD)
  • Phase Three: Room Selection. During this phase you will search for and select your room for 2019–2020. Opens Monday, April 29 (Specific Time TBD)

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 remember all correspondence goes to your email account, so be sure to check this daily. Questions about the application? Contact the Talon One Service Center at 470-578-8663 (T-ONE) or
