After you have been accepted to Edinboro University, you will be asked to commit by paying a $100 tuition deposit and, if you’re not commuting from home, a $75 housing deposit. Housing deposits, like the tuition deposit, are paid on line. Once you’ve done this, you can proceed to the housing application by clicking the link at the bottom of the e-deposit submission page. You can apply through myEdinboro, by clicking the S.C.O.T.S. icon and then the myHousing link. You are strongly encouraged to submit your deposit and complete your housing application as early as possible so that you are afforded the best opportunity to select the specific type of housing that is best suited to you.”
Yes, a $75 deposit is to be returned promptly with the Housing Agreement.
Completing your online housing agreement promptly will assist us in honoring your request. Please know that there are only a limited number of room types. Single rooms are generally not available to new students, as returning students and those who return materials early choose those spaces.
If you want a specific roommate, note the potential roommate’s name on the housing application. Both you and the desired roommate must make the request for the other for the department to honor the request. Spaces will not be held awaiting a preferred roommate.
If you require an accessible room accommodation, please indicate that request on the Housing Agreement.
Once a housing assignment is made, you can view the assignment on your SCOTS account.
Not all requests can be honored, due to timing and availability. Students begin receiving Housing Agreements beginning in March. Assignments then are made based on preferences, whether or not roommate preferences may be made, etc.
Changes to housing assignments are made on a case-by-case basis. In general, we try to restrict movement prior to the start of the term. We want to afford students the maximum opportunity to get to know their roommate(s), discuss living arrangements, etc. Continual shuffling inhibits this ability.
