Theme Community Applications - 2022-2023

NOTE: Applicants to theme communities must submit both the Theme Community Pre-Application and a Theme Community Application. 

Students who are interested in applying to  the Asian Culture House, Drew House, French House, German House, Humphries House, Latinx Culture House, Marsh House, Russian House, Spanish House, and Sylvia Rivera communities can find application information and themed community timelines on this page. 

Theme Community Applications for the 2022 - 2023 academic year can only be accessed through the Theme Community Pre-application. The Pre-application asks applicants to rank all of the theme communities they intend to apply for in order of preference.

How it works:

  • Leadership of each theme community will make recommendations to ORL regarding admission to each theme community. 
  • ORL will then use your preference information in conjunction with the decisions made by theme community leadership and make each students' housing assignment. 

By providing your preferences in advance of decisions, we are able to dramatically expedite the process of Theme Community housing assignments.


  • Applications were due March 9th. Any applications submitted after the deadline will be shared with house leadership and next steps will be up to their discretion. Applications will remain open to accept waitlist applications unitl 11:59 pm on May 1st.
