The Catholic University of America

Applications and Requests

 

 Residence Hall & Dining Services Application

The university requires all freshman and sophomore undergraduate students to live in campus housing. As is the case on most residential campuses, on-campus housing for junior and senior students is not automatically guaranteed. During the Spring semester, a lottery is conducted where interested junior and senior students may select housing from available rooms for the next academic year. Housing Services also offers guidance to upperclass and graduate/law students seeking off-campus residence.

Applications are available online in MyHousing; students should log onto Cardinal Station using their Username and Password and navigating to Student Self-Service > MyHousing > ApplyOnline. New students should have received their Cardinal Station login information in the mail. If you have misplaced your Username and Password, please call the CUA Computer Help Desk at (202) 319-4357 for assistance.
