The Student Housing Assistance Review Process (SHARP) is intended to help students request on-campus housing after November 22, 2020 — the last date for regularly-scheduled housing for the Fall 2020 semester — through the spring semester. Specifically, SHARP is designed to help two groups of students:

  • First years, sophomores, and juniors who have already been approved for on-campus housing through SHARP Fall 2020 and need to continue to remain in on-campus housing after November 22, 2020
  • Current seniors who live on campus who wish to request on-campus housing after November 22, 2020

SHARP opened on Monday, November 2, 2020 and closed on Monday, November 16, 2020.
