2022-2023 Housing Application & Room Selection

Students may access the housing application through the Housing Portal by logging in with their BenU email (bnumber@ben.edu) and password. The 2022-2023 Housing Contract Campaign application and roommate selection begins via the Housing Portal on March 15.

The Housing Portal is the official online resident portal. The portal allows new and returning residential students to access and manage communication, housing application, housing agreement, roommate requests, room selection and assignment information. Residents are encouraged to become acquainted with the portal as it will serve as the “go-to place” as an on-campus resident.

Prior to completing a housing application or participation in the room selection process, please review importation information below.
