After you have been accepted to Edinboro University, you will be asked to commit by
paying a $100 tuition deposit and, if you're not commuting from home, a $75 housing
deposit. Housing deposits, like the tuition deposit, are paid online. Once you've
done this, you can proceed to the housing application by clicking the link at the
bottom of the e-deposit submission page. You can apply through myEdinboro by clicking
the S.C.O.T.S. icon and then the myHousing link. You are strongly encouraged to submit
your deposit and complete your housing application as early as possible so that you
are afforded the best opportunity to select the specific type of housing that is best
suited to you.
Yes, a $75 deposit is to be submitted online along with the Housing Agreement.
By promptly completing your online housing agreement, you'll assist us in honoring
your request. Please know that there are only a limited number of room types. Single
rooms are generally not available to new students, because returning students and
those who return materials early choose those spaces.

desired roommate must make the request for the other for the department to honor the
request. Spaces will not be held awaiting a preferred roommate.

begin to receive their room assignments, available on the S.C.O.T.S MyHousing portal.
Generally, Residence Life staff is aware that each new semester brings transition
and change. Students get to know their roommates, suitemates and neighbors while taking
new courses. The roommate agreement is also explored by each student to describe on
paper what their living preferences entail, specifically noting daily habits and whether
or not to share food, clothing or routines around eating, sleeping and studying. We
strongly suggest that roommates allow at least two weeks to focus on classes, reading
and assignments before requesting a room change. After the semester begins, students
are invited to participate in "room change." During room change, students can easily
change rooms within their building; please visit the Graduate Hall Coordinator during
their office hours for more information. For inquiry about moving to another building,
students need to contact Residence Life and Housing directly.
Simply complete the Student Housing Application & the Pet Housing Application with
the required documents on S.C.O.T.S. Your housing assignment will be a single room.

Deposit, you'll receive information about housing options, Living-Learning, instructions

deposit online and provide you with a wealth of information about the housing and
meal plan options. If you're entering in the fall semester, this information will
be sent starting in late March. If you're entering in the spring semester or summer,
the information is sent upon receipt of the advanced tuition deposit. The housing
deposit and online Housing Agreement must be completed in order to have your request
processed. You must provide proof of receiving the meningitis vaccine, or sign a waiver

hall assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis and based on availability
within any given facility. You may log in to the portal at my.edinboro.edu and check
your S.C.O.T.S. account for housing information.

You may live on campus as long as you're enrolled at the University. The University
is committed to student success. To that end, undergraduate students who are single

who live in the residence halls. Students who live on campus, as opposed to off campus
or commuting from home, tend to have higher grade point averages, tend to graduate
in a more timely fashion and report a higher satisfaction with their overall living
experience. Therefore, the University is committed to on-campus housing. It is important
to note that the student housing agreement is alegally binding agreement, and you're held financially responsible for the terms of the agreement once it is

such as lobbies, restrooms, stairwells, lounges, laundry rooms and the main entrances.
While the University provides extermination for basic services such as ants or spiders,
more extensive extermination services such as bedbugs may not be covered by your housing
contract. To decrease insect issues, we suggest the following steps: Keep screens
in windows year-round. Clean your room/suite each week - this includes sweeping, vacuuming
and wiping off bathroom fixtures and mirrors. Maintain snack areas. Wipe off mini-fridge
and microwave weekly. Wash dishes and utensils daily to avoid food mold and insects.
Submit a School Dude for insect concerns or issues; consult your Graduate Hall Coordinator
if you have questions.

and promote student wellness.
