• Transfer Students

For the upcoming academic year, Housing & Residential Life will gurantee on-campus housing to a limited number of transfer students. Due to the demand for student housing on campus and the Housing Guarantee for incoming first-year freshman students, on-campus housing is limited for incoming transfer students. Approximately 200 spaces will be reserved for transfer students with a Housing Guarantee payment (deadline of June 1). Priority will be given to students who select and are admitted to one of our Transfer Student Living Learning Communities. After that, priority will be based on a student's application complete date.

We encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible. Once you apply for admission to the University, you can apply for housing. You do not need to be accepted to the University to apply for housing.

Students who are guaranteed housing will get a guarantee email and will be required to submit the $200 Housing Guarantee payment. Students who are guaranteed and submit the Housing Guarantee payment by the requested date will be assigned to a housing space. Students who are not guaranteed will be added to a general wait list.

For more information about this process, please contact Housing & Residential Life by email at housing@umn.edu or by phone at 612-624-2994.
