Incoming Students

Incoming Students Welcome!  We are so excited that you will be attending High Point University. Please see below for answers to some frequently answered questions. If you do not see your question answered here, please contact the Office of Student Life at 336.841.9231 or

What do I need to bring with me to school?

All of our dorms come fully furnished with a dresser, desk, desk chair, bed frame, twin bed (with the exception of University Center-Full) and trash can. High Point University has created a list of things that we think are important to bring.

Are the beds Twin or XL Twin?

All of our beds are regular twin size. If you require an XL twin mattress, you are able to request this through your MyStuff account, and we will be happy to accommodate your request.

Are there cable hook ups in each room? What about wireless internet?

All of our rooms have a cable connection. Each room is provided basic cable. If a student wants to purchase an upgraded cable package, they may contact a local provider to do so.

Our entire campus is wireless, including all of our residential buildings.

What if I want to change my roommate?

The Office of Student Life wants to ensure that every student feels comfortable in their living environment. If for some reason you have concerns about the roommate that you were matched with, please contact the Office of Student Life at 336-841-9231.

I did not get assigned to one of my top building choices, am I on a waiting list?

You are on a waiting list. Any student that did not get their first housing choice, was automatically put on a waiting list for all of their top choices. As there is movement, students will be contacted by telephone and their High Point e-mail account if they are next on the wait list. At any time, please feel free to contact us and we would be happy to let you know where you are on the list.

New Student Housing Information

Below is some helpful information related to new student housing:

  • The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will be sending out information that contains everything you need in order to reserve your room online in early February.
  • All new students will be notified of their housing assignments in early June.
  • Housing assignments are done based on classification status and deposit date. This means that all Early Decision students will be housed first in deposit date order, then Early Action students in deposit date order, and then Regular Decision students in deposit date order. Please know that if you select a roommate of lower classification and/or deposit date, you will drop down to the lower classification.

At any time if you have any questions, please contact our office at or 336.841.9231.
