Welcome to the
Department of Residence Life



Howard University Community,


Access to the housing waiting list of the Department of Residence Life has been removed as it is at capacity. As such, the opportunity to sign up on the list is no longer available online or in person. First priority for campus housing went to those students that registered for the 2015-2016 academic year. As space becomes available, students will be contacted in order of the waiting list roster. Students on the waiting list should not expect to be contacted before Thursday, August 20, 2015. Please note that currently there are no available rooms in the residence halls.

The Office of Off-Campus Housing and Community Engagement is available to assist with finding off campus housing. The Office of Off-Campus Housing and Community Engagement, located at 2401 Fourth Street NW Tubman
