    • New student assignments are not posted until ALL orientation sessions are complete, normally the third week in July.
    • For a period of time after the last orientation and until the majority of new student assignments are entered, housing assignment/roommate information (for both new and returning students) will not be available in WebAdvisor.
    • By the end of July, all students (new and returning) who have made the necessary payments and completed required paperwork should be able to view their housing information.
