Apply for Housing
New students and returning UNLV students not currently residing on campus, please follow these steps to apply (returning residents, click here).

  • The link below will open the login page for your ACE account. Depending on your computer’s security settings, you may receive a warning about the site certificate. The certificate should be accepted to proceed with the application.
  • If you wish to request a specific roommate, please include that person’s name and student number in the space provided in the application.
  • Please answer the roommate-matching questions fully and honestly. These questions must be answered even if you’ve requested a single room or specific roommate. Parents helping to complete the application should discuss these answers with the student before submitting the application.
  • List your living environment preferences by choosing first, second and third options in the spaces provided. Every effort will be made to honor your assignment requests, but preferences cannot be guaranteed.
  • Select your preferred meal plan option.
  • Review your application to be sure you’ve completed all of the required fields and correctly indicated your preferences. Incomplete contracts will not be processed and could affect your assignment preferences.
  • Carefully review the terms and conditions. You will be asked to provide your binding electronic signature to the Residence and Dining Hall Contract when you complete your housing application. An electronic copy of the contract will be e-mailed via DocuSign for you to review and sign. Students are held accountable for this contract.
  • Please be sure to check your e-mail for your confirmation.
  • Activate your Rebelmail e-mail account; this is the method we will use to communicate with you.


If you are unable to access the online application, please contact us for assistance.

The application fee is $125 for new applicants and is paid when you complete your online application. This fee is nonrefundable and financial aid cannot be used to pay it. Residents currently living on campus applying to renew for the next semester/year are not required to pay the application fee. By July 1, 2019, a $325 reservation fee will also be due to guarantee your space; the reservation fee is applied as a credit toward 2019-20 housing and dining charges.
