Arriving to Campus Checklist

1. Pay Housing Deposit & Complete Housing Preference

2. View Your Housing Assignment & Complete Forms (early August)

In early August you will receive a message to your Brockport email address letting you know that the assignment process is complete and that you can log back into the online housing portal to view your 2021/2022 assignment.
