Housing & Residence Life: Transfer Student Housing

When you think about your transition into becoming a pirate, know that we have a place for you in campus housing. You have the opportunity to enhance your college experience by living where you learn, making friends, and diving head first into our culture.

Room Selection

We allow our returning students to self-select their Fall assignments. We assign all incoming transfer students to the remaining residence halls, based on preference of theme community, room type, roommate(s), and then a questionnaire you complete on your housing application.

If you have earned less than 30 credit hours before transferring, you will be assigned into Windward Commons, our first-year, suite style residence hall. We will try to cluster you with another resident who has already begun their collegiate experience.

Transfer Strong Theme Housing

Transfer Strong is a residential community within the Compass Point community that houses and specifically addresses the needs of incoming upper-class transfer students. It's a great way to meet other transfer students who will be going through some of the same things you will go through. Transfer Strong will have special programs and give you opportunities to meet more students like yourself who are starting their Armstrong experience.

Important Update: Due to higher than normal occupancy for Fall 2016, we can no longer honor requests for this community. Transfer students will be placed in spaces on an as-available basis.
