Apply for Housing
Living on campus is a great way to have fun, meet new friends and get involved with activities and organizations, while still being academic focused.
New Applicants Desiring On-Campus Housing
Students will be able to apply for housing 24 hours after they have been formally accepted to Armstrong. Students may apply for campus housing through their Port of Armstrong account. Fall housing assignments will be posted and student accounts charged by July first. Spring housing assignments will be posted and student accounts charged by November first. Assignments will be determined by the date on the applicant's housing application and when the non-refundable housing application fee is received by the Office of Housing and Residence Life.
Dual enrolled students, (dual enrolled in high school and college), including those enrolled full-time, are not eligible to live on campus.
Living-Learning Communities provide first-year students with the opportunity to become part of a unique experience, with programs and resources to support the interests of the community members. As a member of a Living-Learning Community, you'll have the chance to really get to know Armstrong and develop strong friendships with your fellow residents. Residents have access to many special resources, programs, and activities, such as tutors, mentoring programs, field trips, and reserved space in the first-year residence hall. To express interest in a Living-Learning Community, please indicate your interest on your housing application.
First-Year Student Live-On Requirement
Windward Commons, an exciting first-year student residential community, opened in August 2010, is specifically designed for first-year students! Because living on campus helps students build strong academic, social and community connections, Armstrong has a first-year student live-on requirement for all first-year students. Armstrong strives to make our students well rounded individuals by providing a unique residential experience we know you will choose to be a part of.
While we hope our local students will want to be a part of our on-campus residential community, there is an exemption option for students who live within Chatham, Effingham, Liberty or Bryan counties. Learn about the first-year student live-on residence requirement if you wish to explore your off-campus residential option.
Transfer Student Housing
The Office of Housing and Residence Life understands that transferring to a new university can be a challenging transition. We believe the residential experience can greatly assist students in making the transfer process as smooth as possible. Housing and Residence Life has apartment communities that are perfect for transfer and upper-class students. Our apartment communities balance independence with community building and peer networking by housing live-in Resident Assistants to help support the Armstrong experience of each of our residents.
Make sure to apply as soon as possible, as housing applications are being accepted now! The online application can be completed by logging onto your Port of Armstrong account. Please review our five steps to apply for housing for complete details.
