Tutorial: Room Retention

The Housing Portal has the ability to allow you to retain your current spring room for the following academic year if in an eligible location. Students living in "retainable rooms" will be notified via their student email with information about this process. In order to be eligible for Room Retention, you must be a returning resident and submitted your Housing Application & Signed Terms of Agreement before March 31.  Please refer to the Room Selection Page and your student email for the dates you can retain your room.

You may only retain your room or suite if you are currently residing in: 

  • Bourgeois
  • Concordia
  • Donahue
  • ICC
  • River Hawk Village
  • Riverview West
  • Sheehy

Only certain rooms in these areas are eligible for retention, you will be notified via your student email if you are currently living in an eligible space.
