    • If accepted, you will receive a housing contract and are required to live in the Transfer Experience LLC designated location (Pritchard Hall).
  • If you do not want to apply to the Transfer Experience LLC, you can place your name on the housing waitlist.
    • If taken off the waitlist, you can apply to up to 3 LLPs other than Transfer Experience.
    • If you are not taken off the waitlist and not accepted to Transfer Experience, you will have to seek off-campus arrangements.
