          Housing Agreements

          Admitted students who have paid their tuition deposit will receive housing selection information from the Admissions Office. Students are encouraged to submit their housing deposit and complete their Housing Agreements promptly. Rooms and suites are filled as space is available. Housing assignments for new students begin as early as March. We work to make the best possible assignment, but granting all requests is not always possible. Once assignments are made, students are able to view them by logging into their S.C.O.T.S. account and checking the myHousing section. Students are encouraged to check their University email often for updated information and opportunities.  

          Campus Community

          In addition to the hall amenities, there are endless opportunities for students to become involved in campus and to explore the surrounding area. Edinboro University offers a wide array of campus-based activities and events that include:
