Waiting List Guidelines
- Your position on the waiting list is based on the date and time when you sign up for housing or add yourself to the waiting list.
- Adding yourself to the waiting list does not guarantee that you will receive a bedspace in On-Campus Housing.
- Campus Accommodations will be unable to tell you your position on the waiting list.
- The more specific your waiting list preferences, the less likely your preferences will match an opening.
- When a bedspace that fits your preferences becomes available, an email/text message will be sent to each email address/phone number you provide.
- Notification of openings will be sent Monday through Friday during the hours of 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
- You will have 4 hours from the time you receive notification of an opening to accept a bedspace on hold and complete the agreement.
- If you do not complete the agreement within the allotted time, the hold will expire and you will no longer be able to contract for that bedspace.
- If you do not accept a bedspace and the hold expires, you will be removed from the waiting list. In order to be considered for additional openings you will need to renew your place on the waiting list (there is no limit to the number of times you may renew your place on the waiting list).
- Group accommodations can be requested by sending a message to Campus Accommodations through the My Housing Account. The message should include the Net IDs of each group member as well as the semester or term the request is for. All group members should add themselves to the waiting list.
- If you are a deferred returning missionary, you will be permitted to add your name to the waiting list. However, please note that your ability to add your name to the waiting list has no bearing on your admission status.

How Do I Get a Bedspace Offer?

- The message in your My Housing Account will state:
"A bedspace has been put on hold for you matching your waiting list preferences for the requested agreement period. You have until (said time) Provo Time to accept or reject this hold. Please be aware that after accepting this hold you will need to complete the agreement before the hold expires.
Note: Please do not log in to My Housing Account from multiple computers while completing the agreement, as this will prevent you from being able to complete the process."
- You will click on the link in the message that will direct you to a page that shows a floor plan of where the bedspace is located. The bedspace that is on hold will be green.
- Click accept hold or decline hold (if you don't want the bedspace).
