Housing Plan for the 2021-2022 Academic Year

We are excited to announce that we will be able to house significantly more students for the 2021-2022 Academic Year than we were able to this academic year. However, the pandemic and related public health concerns will continue to restrict our overall housing capacity.

Due to these ongoing restrictions, the university has decided to honor the two-year housing guarantee made to new, incoming students over the last two years. Thus, we will prioritize housing for incoming first-year students and rising sophomore students. Additionally, the university is suspending the second-year housing requirement for the 2021-2022 Academic Year. In other words, rising sophomores will not be required to live on campus, but they will be guaranteed housing if they apply by the application deadline.    

Please review the relevant sections below that apply to you.

Incoming Student Housing for Academic Year 2021–22

We’re looking forward to welcoming new Panthers to Chapman in the fall. As you prepare for your first semester, this page will provide key details about housing in the 2021–22 academic year. 

For the most part, we anticipate the housing process to be very similar to pre-COVID conditions, though we will be taking precautions to help ensure the safety of our students as well as the campus and surrounding community.

See the sections below for further details.

Continuing Student Housing for Academic Year 2021–22

As mentioned above, rising sophomores have been given priority housing for the upcoming year but are not required to live on campus. While we realize this information may be disappointing to rising juniors and seniors, we still encourage all rising juniors and seniors to complete a housing application if they have interest in living on campus. Additionally, our Off-Campus Housing website has a wide variety of resources that support students in finding housing in the local community. Depending on demand from rising sophomores, there may be a limited number of spaces in Chapman housing that we can offer to rising juniors and seniors. Rising juniors and seniors who submit a housing application before the deadline will be added to a list of on-time applicants. After the application deadline, this list will be randomized to ensure fairness, and students will be offered space as available using this ranked list.
