You will need to fill out a Housing Contract online, here are the directions to help you:
Login to your personal ERezLife account (located in the Castleton Portal)
Fill out your profile information (some info will auto-fill for you, you need to complete the rest). Be sure when you fill out “Student Type” that you choose one of the following: incoming first-year student, incoming transfer student, or incoming graduate student.
After you save your profile information, click on “Housing”, then “Housing Overview” in the tab on the left-hand side in the menu. Click the “Apply Now” button beside the housing for Spring 2021.
Complete all questions on the application form. Mandatory questions on the application are marked with a red asterisk mark ( * ). After completing your application form, click "continue to: Confirm application" to continue with your housing application process.
On the Confirm Application page, carefully review your application details and check off the three terms listed indicating that you understand and agree with all statements.
Once your application has successfully been completed, you will see the confirmation message along with your receipt number. You will also notice that your housing application status is updated to complete under the Housing Overview tab. You may click the “withdraw application” link if you change your mind and no longer need housing.
How do I request a roommate?
You can do this by creating a Roommate Group in ERezLife. Here are the directions:
All roommate groups must be submitted before Jan 5, 2021, any requests received after this date will not be considered. Students can choose their roommate, but not suitemates.
To create a roommate group you will need to know the Castleton email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) of the student you would like as your roommate. Roommate groups are made up of two students only and these two students will share one bedroom in any style of housing.
On the left-hand side menu in ERezLife, click “Roommate Groups”. From here you have the option to join a roommate group that another student has invited you to or to “create a new roommate group”.
To choose an already created roommate group, click the circle next to the group you want in the column “My Choice”. You will see two green checks next to the names of the students in the group if both students chose the group. If only one green check appears, that means the other student did not confirm this group as their first choice. Students can have several roommate groups, but they will only be placed with a roommate if both green checks are checked.
Click “create a new roommate group” to start a new group. Then, create a name for the group and type the email address of the student you would like to add to the group. This will create a group in their ERezLife account for them to choose to join.
