Summer iGniTe 2021 Application Open Now

UPDATE: Students who apply for housing for the 2021 summer iGniTe program are currently being placed on a waitlist.

What the Waitlist Means for You:

To be added to the waitlist, start by completing your housing application for summer housing

  • We recommend you complete your fall housing first if you plan to live on campus in fall. 
  • Completed applications include a signed contract and $600 pre-payment. 
    • Only pay that $600 for fall, which will allow for a “delay of pre-payment” in your summer housing application.

Once your application is complete, you’re in line for a bed if a slot opens. Students are added to the waitlist in order of application completion - the sooner you complete your application, the better.

  • At this point your application to live on campus is complete. The only additional step in the process would be to confirm your intention if offered a slot (see below).
  • iGniTe students who complete an application will have their room assigned to them, and will not have roommates this year. 
  • We do anticipate offering housing slots to some waitlisted students.
    • If/when a slot opens for you, you’ll get an email from Housing & Residence Life with the information about the room assignment we have available, with information on how to accept and confirm that assignment.
    • You’ll have one week to accept the assignment offered. If you don’t confirm your intention to live on campus for Summer 2021 by that time, that assignment will be offered to another student on the waitlist.
  • If you need to cancel your application while you’re still on the waitlist, you can cancel your application in the My Housing portal under the Resources tab. You will not be subject to any cancellation penalties.

  • If we are not able to take you off the waitlist, any pre-payments made will be released to your Bursar account or applied to your fall housing where applicable. No cancellation penalties will be assessed.
