Read the Housing Application and License Agreement
Carefully read the Housing Application and License Agreement. This is considered a legal, binding contract, and includes a number of important provisions of which students (and parents) should be aware. For instance, if you do not notify Housing and Dining Programs by a specific date that you will not attend American University and/or live on-campus, you may be subject to a significant cancellation charge. Please see our License Agreement for more details.
Sign and Submit the Housing Application and License Agreement
After fully reading the Housing Agreement, complete the online Enrollment and Housing Application. Be sure to fill this out completely, as it will help to determine where you will live next year, as well as whether you are paired with a smoker or a non-smoker, you have a double or triple room assignment preferences, whether you wish to live in an honors community and/or whether you have an interest in being in an all-female housing community. During periods of high demand for on-campus housing, it may also determine whether you are assigned to a double or a temporary triple.
By signing the application, you indicate that you have read and understand the terms and conditions of the Housing License Agreement and agree to be bound by them.

New incoming Freshman and Transfer Students: Send your $600.00 non-refundable tuition ($400.00) and housing ($200.00) prepayments with your Enrollment Agreement, directly to the Office of Admissions.
