To begin your Housing Application, you must set up Duo multi-factor authentication.

The Upper Class Housing Application is comprised of two steps, which are both required to reserve your room on campus. We recommend saving the dates below in your calendar so you're prepared to complete each step of the application as soon as it opens. Upper Class Housing is limited, so it is important to complete the housing application as soon as possible. Please note that your time ticket for Step 2 is dependent on the date and time you complete the initial application.

What Type of Upper Class Student Are You?

  • Renewing: Students who are able to renew their current room assignment for another year
  • Returning: Students who are returning to live on campus but are not able to renew their same room
  • New Upper Class: Students who have never lived on campus
  • Transfer: Students who are coming to Kennesaw State University from another institution

The Housing Application for Upper Class students opens on January 22, 2024, at 10:00 AM EST. Please note that you must be fully accepted to the University before you can apply to live on campus.

Students are encouraged to apply for housing as soon as possible to increase the likelihood that they will receive housing as Upper Class Housing is limited. Students must be admitted to Kennesaw State University before they can apply for housing.

Please contact the Talon One Service Center at 470-578-8663 (T-ONE) or for specific information.


Time tickets for the final step of the Housing Application, Room Selection, will be available on Monday, February 19, 2024. Room Selection begins on Monday, February 26, 2024, for Upper Class students. During this step, students will select a room once their time ticket opens. Time tickets are based on when students complete Step 1 of the application. To complete this step, you must sign the License Agreement and pay the non-refundable $75 Room Booking Fee.

Anti-Bullying Policy

Housing and Residence Life will not tolerate bullying or cyber bullying, harassment or threatening behaviors from students during the Room Selection process. If you experience any of these behaviors during or after Room Selection from students who are pressuring you to cancel your room assignment, please complete this form, so Housing and Residence Life can get involved. 

Harassing and/or bullying another student is a violation of the KSU Code of Conduct, which all accepted KSU students are responsible for upholding upon admission into the University. Students who are found responsible for inappropriate conduct during the Room Selection process may be moved to another room assignment, could possibly lose their opportunity to live on campus, and/or could face conduct charges with the Department of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity.

Room Selection Frequently Asked Questions


    • You can find your Room Selection time ticket in the Housing Portal starting Monday, February 19, 2024. Once logged in, you will see a notification box that shows you your time ticket. You can also select the "2024-25 Application" tab in the gold menu, and you will see a green box with your time ticket.
    • Time tickets for Upper Class students begin on February 26, 2024. Time tickets open in 20-minute intervals during business hours Monday through Friday. Time tickets are determined based on when students signed their License Agreement during the first step of the Housing Application. Each student has been assigned a specific time when they may begin Room Selection. As a reminder, First-Year and Upper Class students are not able to live in the same communities and will only be able to see the available units for their classification whenever their time ticket begins.  
    • Before Room Selection, we recommend that you visit our website and carefully explore each community. Review the virtual tours, community and room amenities, and pricing of each option. Communicate with your preferred roommate (if applicable) and make a list of your top three community choices before Room Selection begins, so you know what to look for in the Housing Portal.

    • The Room Selection process is the same. The only difference is that LLV students will only be able to select rooms from those reserved for that particular LLV. For more information about LLVs and to see which communities each LLV can be found, please visit our LLV webpage.
    • If you are on a waitlist for an LLV and have not yet received an LLV offer, you have two choices.

      Option 1: You may wait for an LLV offer, which we cannot guarantee you will receive, and forgo your time ticket to begin Room Selection.

      Option 2: You may begin Room Selection according to your time ticket, which will automatically remove you from the LLV waitlist.

      If you choose Option 1, you may potentially miss the opportunity to find a room on campus. If you choose Option 2, you will miss the opportunity to live in an LLV.

      If you have questions about LLVs, please email

    • Our floor plans are useful guides to give you an idea about what your space will look like, but they are not exact. For example, in some units, the bedrooms may be flipped depending on the orientation of the rooms. You may view a virtual tour of each floor plan in our Housing Options section.
    • If you don’t select a bed and we run out of available rooms, you will need to place yourself waitlist. You will not be guaranteed a bed if you do not select one during Room Selection.
    • If we no longer have rooms available for your gender, classification or campus, we will open a waitlist. Students may add themselves to the waitlist; Housing and Residence Life does not place students on a waitlist automatically. There is no cost to add yourself to the waitlist. If a room becomes available, a Housing staff member will reach out to you via phone or email with an offer for the next available bed. You have 48 hours to accept the offer.
    • If you are an Upper Class student, you can see available Upper Class beds on either campus.
    • Upper Class students are not able to choose their roommate because of the limited availability of rooms and the unlikely chance of finding a room pair after current Upper Class students renew.
    • Students have 48 hours after selecting or being placed into a room to pay their $75 Room Booking Fee. If you do not pay this fee within 48 hours, your reservation will be dropped, and your room will go back into the available room pool. We encourage you to pay this fee as soon as possible.
    • To cancel your existing booking in an attempt to book a different room, please email your request to from your KSU student email account. You will be asked to complete a form indicating your acceptance of the terms for cancelling your existing booking. Please note that the room you hope to select may not be available once your booking is cancelled and you are able to log back in to select a new room.
