    • Rooms that are designed and furnished for two people.
    • Floors are assigned a single gender, and they share a multi-stalled bathroom.
    • All first-year students under 20 years old will be placed in either Hines Hall or Pouch Hall.
    • Sophomores, Upperclassmen, and first year students 20+ years old will be placed in either Street Hall or Magna Hall.

BEFORE YOU APPLY FOR HOUSING:

  1. Students will not be able to access their MyHousing Portal until they have been admitted into the college, have submitted their deposit, and have activated their AIC e-mail. Once this e-mail has been successfully activated, students may log into their MyHousing Portal using their AIC e-mail and password. If you have trouble logging into the MyHousing Portal, or if you have not received your AIC Email and password, The AIC IT Help Desk will be able to help.

  2. If a student is under 17 at the time of signing the housing application, a parental verification will be required. This verification will be e-mailed to the parent/guardian and the parent/guardian will have to follow the link in the e-mail to confirm.

TO SUBMIT YOUR NEW & TRANSFER STUDENT HOUSING APPLICATION:

  1. Login to the MyHousing Portal using the AIC email address and password the IT Help Desk sent you after you were accepted, admitted, and deposited to American International College. 
    • If you receive an "Error 500" message, or if you cannot login, the AIC IT Help Desk will be able to assist. 
  2. Click "Application" at the top of the page, and select the "New & Returning Student Housing Application: Spring 2021"
  3. Review the AIC Housing Agreement, and leave a signature at the bottom of the page to advance into the application.
  4. Enter your contact information, your housing preferences, and your emergency contact information.
  5. You will receive a confirmation message and an email in your AIC email when you have successfully submitted your application.

How Housing Assignments Are Made:

Students are placed in housing on a first-applied, first placed basis. We make all efforts to place students in their preferred residence hall, however if a hall is filled before we are able to place a student, we will place them in the most comparable residence hall either according to building type or location.

  • Graduate Students: If we are not able to place you in the Acorn Graduate Apartments, you will then be placed in any of the following based on their availability, in this order:
    • Acorn Undergraduate Apartments
    • Edgewood Suites
    • Broadhurst Suites
    • Street Hall

Housing Assignment Announcement Timeline:
Students who apply for housing will receive their housing assignment, roommate, and meal plan information via AIC Email as follows:

  • Students who apply for housing by January 3rd will receive their housing assignment by January 7th
  • Students who apply for housing January 3rd to January 7th will receive their housing assignment by January 10th
  • Students who apply for housing after January 7th receive their housing assignment by January 14th or within 5 business days - whichever comes first

 

Single Rooms: Single rooms are not readily available to offer students moving to campus for Spring 2022. Single rooms may only be made available to students after they have received an approved accommodation through the Center for Accessibility Services and Academic Accommodations, and if such a room is available.
