Housing Assignments and Requests for Changes

The Housing/Dining Services Contract is valid for both the fall and spring terms. Students should be prepared to meet successive deposit due dates in future years to maintain any housing guarantee.

Upper-class students participate in a process each March to determine eligibility and the order in which they will select housing for the next year. Freshman students who respond to Pitt’s offer of admission by the May 1 due date and meet all required deadlines and deposits are guaranteed housing. The University of Pittsburgh assigns resident students based upon the information provided in their contracts and the availability of the requested accommodations.

Panther Central and residence life staff process and approve room change requests, contingent upon available space.
