Housing & Residence Life
Apply for Housing
Living on campus is a great way to have fun, meet new friends and get involved with activities and organizations.
New Applicants Desiring On-Campus Housing
Housing applications will be processed only after a student has been formally accepted to Armstrong. Fall assignments will be posted and student accounts charged by July first. Spring assignments will be posted and student accounts charged by November first. Assingments will be determined by the date on the applicant's housing application and application fee is received by the Office of Housing and Residence Life.
Dual enrolled students, (dual enrolled in high school and college), including those enrolled full-time, are not eligible to live on campus.
Living-Learning Communities provide first-year students with the opportunity to become part of a unique experience, with programs and resources to support the interests of the community members. As a member of a Living-Learning Community, you'll have the chance to really get to know Armstrong and develop strong friendships with your fellow residents. Residents have access to many special resources, programs, and activities, such as tutors, mentoring programs, field trips, and reserved space in the first-year residence hall. To express interest in a Living-Learning Community, please indicate your interest on your Housing Application.
First-Year Student Live-On Requirement
Windward Commons, an exciting first-year student residence community, opened in August 2010, is specifically designed for first-year students! Because living on campus helps students build strong academic, social and community connections, Armstrong has a first-year student live-on requirement for all first-year students. There is an exemption option for students who live within Chatham, Effingham, Liberty or Bryan counties. Learn about the first-year student residence requirements.
The Office of Housing and Residence Life understands that transferring to a new university can be a challenging transition. We believe the residential experience can greatly assist students in making the transfer process as smooth as possible. Housing and Residence Life has communities dedicated to transfer and upper-class students. Due to Housing and Residence Life's policy, all renewing residents get first choice of assignments during Housing and Residence Life's renewal period.
Make sure to apply as soon as possible, as Housing applications are being accepted now! The online application can be completed by logging onto your Port of Armstrong account. Please review our five steps to apply for Housing.
