Residence Life Waiting List

The following students are given priority on the residence hall wait list:

  • Those who meet the current residency requirement (under 21 years of age with fewer than 58 credit hours completed)
  • Those who are required to live on campus due to a grant or award.

Special consideration also will be given to those students who will be arriving from out of the state or out of the country. Those students who meet the primary criteria will then be prioritized based upon their confirmation status (if tuition is paid, a student will be given first consideration).

Due to the nature of a co-ed campus with a variable ratio of male to female residents, a female listed below a male may receive a room assignment first or vice versa. The waiting list is updated daily as space becomes available. You will be contacted by phone and/or e-mail when we have a space for you. You will then have 48 hours to confirm or decline your room assignment. If you fail to confirm your room assignment within 48 hours, you will be placed at the bottom of the list and contacted again if space becomes available.

Please contact Residence Life at 816-584-7401 or via e-mail at with any questions.
