ATTENTION UPPERCLASS/TRANSFER STUDENTS:  Residential Life is pleased to have received so much interest in on-campus housing for the 2014-15 school year!  With on-campus housing in such high demand, our upperclass/transfer housing complex is near capacity.  If you would like to live on campus in the fall, we recommend submitting your housing contract to our department as soon as possible.  As of June 24, 2014, Residential Life will be maintaining a waiting list, prioritized by date and time the contract is received, in order to assign students a room.  If a room assignment is possible, based on waiting list priority, individuals will be notified via their Emporia State University student email account.
