Emergency Housing Update: 

The Office of Residence Life & University Housing values our students and recognize that many students are interested in returning to the DMV area to continue on their academic pursuits. We have identified limited spaces for undergraduate students that may be challenged with finding off-campus housing.  

If you are interested in being considered for campus housing, please complete the Fall 2021 Emergency Housing Request. The Emergency Housing Request form will close promptly once all spaces have been filled, as we are offering spaces on a first come, first serve basis.  

If we are unable to offer you a space, we encourage you to visit the Office of Off-Campus Housing and Community Engagement to seek and secure off-campus housing if you intend to return to the District for Fall 2021.  

Reminder: All Bison are required to be fully vaccinated by August 1, 2021 to reside or come to campus for any reason during the Fall 2021 semester. To read the COVID-19 vaccination requirement policy statement, please visit: https://home.howard.edu/pandemic-response/students/vaccination/policy.
