• New students are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, once the following criteria have been met:
    1 Acceptance to Lee University
    2 Completion of a Residence Hall application
    3 Payment of the housing reservation deposit.

    Every effort is made to assign roommates based on written mutual request on the residence hall application.

    To reserve a residence hall assignment for a new academic year, each student will need to complete the Advanced Housing Selection application and process.

    Housing Application

    Students who are interested in on-campus housing must complete the Residence Hall Application and mail it to the Admissions Center, along with the $200 housing deposit. Single and married student housing reservations will not be held without the $200.00 deposit. This deposit will be held as a roll-over deposit. In subsequent semesters, this roll-over deposit, along with an updated residence hall application/contract, will reserve the student’s residence hall assignment for the following semester. When a student graduates, moves off-campus or leaves the University, the deposit will be applied (within sixty days after residence halls close of the applicable semester) to the student’s account to cover any unpaid balance or a refund will be issued.

    The housing deposit is refundable at your WRITTEN request to the office of Residential Life & Housing until 30 days PRIOR to registration.

    To receive your deposit refund click on Deposit Refund Form and email it to housing@leeuniversity.edu or fax it to 423-614-8404.

    Priority for housing assignments are made based on the date of the completed application and deposit. Residence Hall assignments will be sent via email in February, May, June, and July for the fall semester and in November for the spring semester. Unfortunately, the University is not able to guarantee particular assignment requests. However, every request is given the best possible consideration.

    Summer housing is available. If you are in need of summer housing, please fill out the Summer Housing Application and email, fax, or mail to our Assistant Director.

    Room Assignment

    New students with application and housing deposits are assigned to residence halls on a first come, first served basis. The University reserves the right to reassign students to different residence halls if the need arises. Preferred roommates are asked to submit their housing applications and deposits together. Requests will be reviewed and honored when possible, but cannot be guaranteed. When a preferred roommate is not listed, the Residential Life & Housing staff does their best to match students according to the study/sleep habits and preferences indicated on the housing application.
