How To Apply For Housing

How to Apply for Housing:

Once you have submitted your housing deposits (Residence Hall Deposit & Damage Deposit), the next step is to complete your online housing application. You are just one click away from applying for housing on the Metropolitan Campus. You will need your FDU email address and password in order to begin the online housing application. Please follow the instructions below to apply online for housing.

IMPORTANT: After you create your FDU Webmail Account, please wait 72 hours before attempting to log-in to MyHousing to apply for housing. Your FDU Webmail Account information must be pulled into the MyHousing system before you are able to access the site. If you attempt to apply immediately after creating your FDU Webmail Account, you will receive an error message.
