If your student would like to see what is available for next year, be sure to have them check our website (https://www.jmu.edu/orl/) or call the office to see if we have any Open Houses scheduled.
Students can choose to stay in their current room if they currently live in Ashby, Logan, Gifford, Converse, Wampler, Shenandoah B section, or the Apartments on Grace* (*To retain your room in the Apartments on Grace, you have to fill the apartment) . We just ask that the student respond to a Room Retention Survey that they were notified about in late January. Room retention request forms are typically due at the beginning of March. All other students will go through ORS.
In March, all students who have signed housing contracts for the next school year will be assigned a room selection time slot. All time slots are associated with a time to log into the online housing system. The room selection schedule is currently posted to the ORL website and includes all the dates and times your student will be able to log in and choose from the available rooms.
Fortunately this, and other Online Room Selection information for First Year and Returning Students can be found by clicking either of the buttons below. Your student will continue to receive information via their JMU dukes email account, please remind them to check it frequently.
