Freshmen, new graduate students and new transfer students may apply for housing once they have been admitted to the University and have submitted the tuition deposit to the Office of Admissions. The tuition deposit confirms a student’s intent to attend the University and will give a student access to “MyLaVerne,” the University student portal. Once you have confirmed your intention, you may apply by logging into “MyLaVerne” and select the term for which you are applying.

How to Apply

Step 1: Log into MyLaVerne.  Log into “MyLaVerne” and click on “Student Services and Financial Aid” to access the Housing Application. If you are not sure how to access “MyLaVerne,” contact the Registrar’s Office at or visit for step-by-step directions.

  2. Pay the $300 non-refundable application/activity fee. (Different from tuition fee to University) Application considered “complete” once payment is submitted
  3. Browse for potential roommate and sign up for the optional renters insurance.

Step 3: Room Placement.
