Student Theme Community Applications for Academic Year 2024- 2025 are still open for the waitlist!

Theme Community Applications for the 2024 - 2025 academic year can only be accessed through Part One of the Theme Community application. Part One of the application asks applicants to rank all theme communities they intend to apply for in order of preference.  Links to individual theme community applications can be found at the end of Part One of the Theme Community Application.

How it works: 

  • Either the elected leadership of each theme community will make recommendations to REW regarding admission to each theme community or students who meet the criteria (based on their application) will be assigned to the community based on their housing selection number.  Available spots will be distributed equally based on graduation year (1/3 of spots to Sophomores, 1/3 to Juniors, 1/3 to seniors).  
  • Housing & Operations will then use your preference information in conjunction with the decisions made by theme community leadership and complete each student's housing assignment.

By providing your preferences before making a decision, we can dramatically expedite the Theme Community housing assignments process.
