Graduate/Law/Non-Traditional Student Housing Options for Academic Year 2014-2015
Each year, the Office of Housing Services facilitates a room selection process for current undergraduate, degree-seeking students who anticipate full-time undergraduate enrollment for the next academic year. If space permits after the undergraduate assignment process is complete, Housing Services will offer housing to a Graduate/Law/Non-Traditional Waitlist. Interested students can submit a Waitlist Application by logging onto Cardinal Station using their Username and Password and navigating to Student Self-Service > MyHousing > ApplyOnline. A Guide to Applying Online can assist you with this process. 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.
