Study Abroad and Leave of Absence Students
If you are Studying Abroad or on a Leave of Absence during the Spring:If you are studying abroad or on a leave of absence during spring semester and want to live on campus for the next academic year, you should participate in the Housing Selection Process. Since the process is online, you should be able to complete all the required steps while away from LMU.
If you are unsure whether you will be Studying Abroad next Fall:If you would like to live on campus in the event that your study abroad plans fall through, you should participate in the Housing Selection Process. Do not avoid going through the process for fear of losing the $400 processing fee. The Student Housing Office acknowledges and supports the value of the study abroad experience and therefore does not process a fee forfeiture for students who are confirmed to be on an LMU or affiliated study abroad program and cancel their housing assignment by completing the "Request to Cancel Housing" form found in Student Housing Online Services via MyLMU. In that event, your $400 processing fee will be credited to your student account. If you plan to re-apply for housing for the spring semester, you will need to complete the online application found in Student Housing Online Services in MyLMU. When re-applying, you will need to resubmit all of your application materials including the online application, electronic acknowledgement of the license agreement, and a new $400 processing fee to the Student Accounts Office.
If you have been admitted to the Study Abroad Program:If you are certain that you will be abroad in the fall and will not need housing until spring, you do not need to participate in the Housing Selection Process. If you are interested in living on-campus for the spring semester when you return, you can apply for spring housing through Student Housing Online Services in November. Spring housing is not guaranteed, but in previous years the Student Housing Office has been able to accommodate all interested returning Study Abroad students. We will contact you in November via an email to your LION email account so that you may fill out your online housing application, electronically acknowledge your license agreement and pay the housing processing fee while you are abroad. We will then assign you to spring housing based on availability and the date that you submit the completed application materials.
