The opportunity for current students to sign-up to live on-campus for the 2023-2024 Academic Year is called “Returner Sign-Up”. Students who decide to stay on campus next school year have the advantage of choosing exactly where they want to live – from the residence hall to the specific room!
Returner Sign-Up for AY 23-24 begins on January 18. The first step in the returner sign-up process is to visit the Online Housing Portal to complete your housing contact for the next year.
If you want to live in the SAME bed space that you are currently in, please plan to go online and renew your bed between Tuesday, January 18 and Friday, January 27 by 5:00 p.m. to secure that exact spot for next year. If you know that you want to look for a new/different space, no action is required during that timeframe.
If you DO NOT want to stay in the SAME bed space that you are currently in for next year DO NOT log-in to the housing portal and renew your bed space. Instead, check your Ball State email address for an email from Ball State Housing regarding Search/Swap. Prior to Tuesday, February 7, all students with renewed contracts will receive an email with a timeslot for them to begin Search/Swap and select their space in the halls for the next Academic Year.
