How to Apply for Housing
On-campus accommodations within the residence halls are available only to full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate students. If you are interested in living on campus, please complete a housing application through your myBarry account after your admissions acceptance and payment of your enrollment deposit. All accepted students are not guaranteed on-campus housing because housing assignments are made on a first-applied, first-served basis; therefore, it is strongly suggested to apply early.
Along with your housing application, you will submit a $200 housing deposit in order to receive consideration. This deposit will be applied toward your housing costs. All housing deposits are non-refundable after May 1st for fall housing and October 1st for spring housing. Cancellations must be in writing to the Department of Housing and Residence Life. Cancellations after the deadline or failure to occupy the space will result in forfeiture of the housing deposit.
Required Health Information
Students offered housing must provide proof of insurance and complete an online insurance waiver upon entering the University and, on an annual basis thereafter prior to the first 14 days of the semester or, the fee for the Barry sponsored student insurance plan may be assessed to the student's account. If a student insurance fee has been assessed to a student's account due to lack of compliance with the university policy, such fees are irrevocable and will not be credited under any circumstance. The wavier can be submitted through your myBarry page or at www.srstudentcenter.com. In addition students are required to submit a health history form and medical documentation of vaccinations (2 MMR's, a Tdap in the past 10 years and a meningitis vaccination received after 2005) submitted to Student Health Center prior to checking into campus housing. Failure to comply with the University policy may negatively affect the student's the arrangements for university provided housing.
All students residing in university provided housing will be assessed a $90.00 bi-annual Student Health Center Supplemental Insurance fee. This fee can be waived by completing the Supplemental Insurance waiver found on the web at www.barry.edu/health-services/student-insurance/. All waivers must include all required data to be considered valid and must be submitted within the first 14 days of the semester, for credit to be issued.
