Current Students Application Process

OVERVIEW

In order to participate in the Housing Room Selection process and sign up for a learning community, have the $450 advanced housing payment posted, waived, or credit applied towards the payment by March 20, 2018. If you have any questions about this, please contact the Housing Office at 315-443-2721 or email housing@syr.edu.

There is a multi-step process for current SU students to sign up for a learning community.  To begin, complete the Office of Learning Communities on-line application form.  Current students can only apply for one learning community choice. The application deadline is 11:59 PM on March 2, 2018. Students who sign up after the deadline will not be eligible for a learning community placement.

ABOUT THE APPLICATION

Be prepared to provide the following information on the application:

  • Name
  • SUID number
  • SU e-mail address
  • Learning Community choice
  • Your intended roommates' name(s)

As well as your answer to the following 3 essay questions:

  • Why are you interested in joining this specific learning community?
  • What do you hope to gain?
  • What can you offer the other LC participants and faculty?

STEP-BY-STEP LEARNING COMMUNITY SIGN UP

Step 1: Have the $450 advanced housing payment posted, waived, or credit applied towards the payment and have it posted to your MySlice account by March 20, 2018. (if you don't do this, you won't be eligible to participate in the Housing Room Selection process & therefore you won't be able to sign up for a learning community.)

Step 3: All learning community applications will be reviewed by the learning community faculty and staff.

Step 4: You will receive an email by March 7, 2018 letting you know of your approval status.  (If you are not approved for a learning community, you should participate in the Housing Room Selection process beginning with Round 1)

Step 5: If approved, go to the Housing Office website, and print the "Learning Community, Interest Housing, and Six-Person Suite Request Form."  Complete the form and indicate your learning community placement, preferred room types, and roommate selection.

Step 6: Submit the "Learning Community, Interest Housing, and Six-Person Suite Request Form" to the Housing Office (206 Steele Hall) by 2 PM on Thursday, March 22nd, 2018.
