Apply for Parking:
All residents that will have a vehicle which will be parked in the University Parking lots assigned to Student Housing, must have a parking permit specific to their housing assignment (Miner Village, Miner Canyon, Miner Heights) prior to check-in. Only those with a valid Miner Village, Miner Heights, Miner Canyon parking decal will have access to the drive-in gates. This University parking permit may be purchased at the University Parking and Transportation office.
For Safety and Security reasons, only residents of the specific complex have access to the parking lot. To enter, they must present their Student ID at the gate. Housing and Residence Life staff is not permitted to open the gate simply by pressing the call button, so please have your Miner Gold Card with you at all times.

Yes. You have the option of choosing your own roommate. You must select them on your application, and they must select you on their application. Once you all select each other as roommates double check that it is listed as confirmed on your application prior to submitting it. If it is listed as pending the request will not be granted.
At the time you request an application, we will also send you a Roommate Selection Form. The answers that you give will help us find a roommate similar in age and interests. Once all residents/roommates are checked-in, you will be asked to create a Roommate Agreement with your roommate over the rules of the room.
Room assignments are primarily based on the date the application is submitted and the availability of rooms. It is crucial that you choose more than one room-style option on your housing application. In the event that your first choice is not available, the automated room assigning system will follow your list of preferences until it finds an available space within your room choices.
If you only choose one room-style and it is not available at the time you submit your application, the system will assign you to the next available room and it may not be your second choice.
If you selected a specific roommate on your application, you will be assigned to the room-style listed on the first application submitted. Please confirm on that your roommate selection is confirmed on the resident portal. If the roommate selection is not confirmed, the system will not know to assign you together.
If you did not select a specific roommate, you will be assigned to a roommate based on the way you answered the lifestyle questions on your application.
