What do I need to do to remove my Housing Hold?
All students who are considered to be freshman academically are required to live in University Housing. You must complete your application, including the Room Reservation Fee, or complete an exemption form and have your exemption form approved in order to remove this Housing Hold. Find the exemption form here: https://www.thomasu.edu/uploads/documents/request-exemption-form.pdf
What is the deadline to apply for on-campus housing?
Thomas University does not have an official deadline for on-campus housing. The sooner you apply, the better chance that Housing and Residence Life can accommodate your preferences, the sooner your Housing Hold will be removed and the earlier you can register for classes.
What is a Room Reservation Fee?
A room reservation fee of $300 is to be submitted by all incoming students. This fee requests a space in student housing. It is credited to the students’ room and board charges for the semester when the student is assigned and moves on campus.
How will I be assigned a roommate?
The Office of Residence Life assigns roommates based on the room/ roommate preferences. You are able to request a roommate on your Housing Application. If you do not have a room mate preference we will choose a room mate for you. Residence Life does our best to match students with similar student profiles.
If I decide I do not want to live in University Housing, how do I cancel my application and receive a refund for the Room Reservation Fee?

Thomas University requires a record of immunization for students residing in housing and students enrolled in Nursing and Medical Laboratory Science programs. Measles, mumps, and rubella immunizations are required. Tetanus-diphtheria, varicella, hepatitis B, and meningitis vaccinations are recommended. Georgia law requires that you receive a meningitis vaccination or waive this immunization. Resident students failing to submit necessary documentation may be prohibited from entering campus until such paperwork is received. The record of immunization will be kept on file and will be valid throughout the tenure of the student’s enrollment. This policy is in place to ensure that students are protected against communicable diseases that are preventable and to reduce the likelihood of an epidemic or threatened epidemic on the Thomas University campus.
