NEW AND IMPROVED ONLINE HOUSING APPLICATION LAUNCHED
Houston, February 29, 2012 Applying for housing just got easier with the latest enhancements
to the online application process. Starting this semester, students can complete their housing
application, payments and service agreement all at once, making the process more convenient
for future residents as well as housing staff.
"We are very excited about the new online application and agreement process," said Don
Yackley, Executive Director for Residential Life and Housing. "It allows us to better serve our
students. It's paperless, it's fast and it's easier."
Future residents will now be able to finish the application process during one login session which
will lead them step-by-step as they enter their information, pay deposits and fees, select a meal
plan, choose facility preferences and sign the Residence Hall Service Agreement using an
electronic signature. With the former process, students had to login several times to the system
and were also required to print and scan or fax their housing agreements to the housing office.
This new process is also eliminating the use of paper, saving time for the residents and office
