Homesteading

Renewing your assignment for the following year? This is Homesteading.

Housing Process

Any student who has not yet been assigned a room after the homesteading process will now be able to go online during their timeslot and secure a room for the coming academic year. Specific dates and times will be communicated to students via email.

a. Students will need to use the housing portal at www.highpoint.edu/myhome and form groups.

i. A group is defined as one or more students who want to live together. NO group can be larger than four individuals. Forming a group does not guarantee that you will be able to select housing together.

ii. One person will create a group and will add others to the group. If you are added to a group that you are not interested in being part of, you can remove yourself from this group. This entire process is completed through the housing portal at www.highpoint.edu/myhome.

iii. The one person that creates the group will be the group leader. This person does not have to be the person in the group with the highest number of credit hours. The group leader will have the ability to select housing for all members in the group during the assigned time slot.

iv. If a student does not show up in the roommate group search process, they have already been assigned a housing assignment for the Fall 2022 semester, they have not paid their housing deposit, they are already part of a housing group, or they are not eligible to go through the housing process.

v. Please note, creating a group (or being added to a group) does not guarantee a room assignment with group members.

Individuals/groups are assigned a time slot based on the individual in the group who has the highest number of credit hours. If there are students/groups with an equal number of credit hours, GPA will determine order.

c. Time slots will be announced each week. Students will need to log onto the portal during their assigned time slot to maximize their housing selection options. If a student misses their time slot, they can log on any time after their time slot to select housing.

i. During an assigned time slot, students will be able to view all rooms and locations that are available for selection and select a bed space.

ii . Prior to a student’s official timeslot, students can log onto the housing portal and view which communities and specific rooms are available using the Availability Link. It is recommended that students use the Availability link 24-48 hours prior to their timeslot, as housing availability changes hourly during the housing selection process.

Waitlist: After students have selected their housing assignment, they will also have the option to access the waitlist through the housing portal. Students will have the ability to self-select up to six waitlists.

a. In addition, students have full access to log into the housing portal anytime to check their position on the waitlist.

b. We will work through the waitlist until the start of the start of Move In, as long as there are openings. Any student wishing to make changes after the start of the semester will need to work with their Resident Director to look at available options.

Room Swap: Students will also be able to access the Room Swap feature through the housing portal. The Room Swap feature gives students the ability to switch rooms with other interested students.

a. The Room Swap process will permit students to advertise and communicate their interest in swapping rooms through an online forum and search for other students who are also interested in swapping rooms.

b. Only students with a room assignment for the 2022-2023 academic year will have access to the Waitlist and Room Swap features.

c. To remove your room from room swap, log into the portal and remove your room swap preferences. This will remove your room from the list of spaces available to swap and students will not be able to request a room swap with you. You can log on at any time and add yourself back to the room swap.

d. Placing your room up for swap does not remove you from your space. You must agree and confirm a room swap to have another student take your space.

If a student is opting to live off campus, please know that we require all of our students to reside on campus until they have reached senior status in completed credit hours (96 credits hours), or commuting from their parent’s permanent address. No housing assignments will be cancelled to let a student live off campus until they complete the Off Campus Living Contract and provide documentation that they are commuting or have reached senior status in credit hours. Any student considering living off campus will need to complete the Off Campus Living Contract through the housing portal at www.highpoint.edu/myhome, under “Contracts and Forms.”
