New Students

The 2021-2022 housing application is NOW OPEN!

Freshmen, new graduate students, and new transfer students may apply for housing once they have been admitted to the university and have submitted the tuition deposit to the Office of Admissions. The tuition deposit confirms a student’s intent to attend the university and will give a student access to “MyLaVerne,” the university student portal. Once you have confirmed your intention, you may apply by logging into “MyLaVerne” and select the term for which you are applying.
