Frequently Asked Questions

What is the "housing freeze?"

Although the Housing Freeze sounds like something related to cold months in Minnesota, it actually occurs during the first and last two weeks of each term. During the Housing Freeze no room changes can occur. The Freeze is designed to allow time to get settled into your room and get to know your roommate(s), to respect academic efforts at busy times of the term, and to give Residential Life staff members time to evaluate occupancy levels for the term.
