Room Assignments (2020-2021)
Students ready for placement will receive notice from the Office of Student Life via their ASUB student email about when to finalize their housing assignment for their 2020-2021 two-semester academic year lease. The following section will help guide student through finalizing their room assignments, accessing the ResLife Portal, information about our priority on single rooms this fall, and how to review the Housing wait list.
Students ready for placement will receive notice from the Office of Student Life via their ASUB student email about when to finalize their housing assignment for their 2020-2021 two-semester academic year lease.
To finalize your housing assignment, you must go to the ResLife Portal and confirm your plans for the 2020-2021 Academic Year by setting up your profile (including contact information, preferences, roommate request, room preferences, meal plan) and signing your two-semester academic year lease beginning Fall 2020. Once you have completed your ResLife Profile and digitally signed your lease agreement for the 2020-2021 Academic Year, you will receive an automatic confirmation email from the ResLife Portal with instructions about accessing your room assignment. Please notice, it may take a few days for your room assignment to be populated in your ResLife Portal account.
Please know any resident who has not paid their $150.00 non-refundable housing application fee, before attempting to confirm your housing assignments (setup your ResLife Portal profile and digitally sign the two-semester academic year lease agreement) may be wait-listed for housing and not assigned a room. Please know housing assignments are confirmed based on the date your housing application fee is paid.
You have until Friday, July 17, 2020 to login into the ResLife Portal, setup your ResLife Portal profile, and digitally sign the two-semester academic year lease agreement to ensure your room assignment is secured without being wait-listed. Any applicant that does not confirm their intent for housing and have paid their $150.00 non-refundable housing application fee before 5:00PM Friday, July 17, 2020 will risk being wait-listed for housing.
This academic year, the Office of Student Life is excited to announce the launch of the new housing management software. ResLife Portal is an online platform for you to access information about on-campus housing during your stay in the residence halls. During the fall semester, you will be able to learn about events, submit work orders, connect with staff, track your engagement in campus life, and earn engagement points to win prizes. At this time, you will need to use the ResLife Portal, to finalize your 2020-2021 Academic Year housing and view your room assignment.
Residents can begin to log into the ResLife Portal view their room assignment and digitally sign the two-semester academic year lease agreement. http://asubresidents.reslifeportal.com/
*Please know all residents with current room assignments have been moved over to the ResLife Portal for current residents, linked above. The "new residents portal" has been disabled.
As we prepare to welcome an increased number of residents back to our on-campus residence halls during the COVID-19 public health emergency, ASU-Beebe recognizes the increased health risk of residents sharing a living space together. As a result, for the Fall 2020 semester, the college will prioritize placing residents in single rooms, with only a limited number of double rooms available. Although these will decrease the capacity of bed space available, ASU-Beebe believes reducing density in the housing capacity will result in a safer living environment for our residents.
New residents still wishing to be placed in a double room with a roommate, will be required to opt into a double room by selecting “Double Room” as their 1st Room Preference in the ResLife Portal referenced above. Additionally, all residents that accept a double room with a roommate will be required to sign an additional waiver acknowledging the increased risk of sharing a living space with another resident.
All other residents wishing to be placed in a private room, should select “Single Room” or “Private Double Room” as their room preferences in the ResLife Portal referenced above.
|Room Type||Rent per Semester||Total Room & Board|
|Private Double Room||$2,000||$3,225|
Because of limited capacity, the Office of Student Life is required to provide priority to applications of students that fully qualify for housing. As a result, any student with a housing hold for failure to pay the required $150.00 non-refundable housing application fee before July 1, 2020, currently not enrolled in classes for the Fall 2020 semester, or with a past due balance for the Spring 2020 semester has been wait-listed and not assigned a room.
Additionally, residents that do qualify for room assignments have until Friday, July 17, 2020 to login into the ResLife Portal, setup your ResLife Portal profile, and digitally sign the two-semester academic year lease agreement to ensure your room assignment is secured without being wait-listed. Any applicant that does not confirm their intent for housing and have paid their $150.00 non-refundable housing application fee before 5:00PM Friday, July 17, 2020 will risk being wait-listed for housing.
For your convenience, we have provided a link to the 2020-2021 Housing Wait List below. Here you can search your student ID number to find your place on the wait list and the reason your housing has a hold. Please notice, students in red have a hold on their housing and will be passed over for the first student listed in white.

Fall 2020 "Move-in" Process - UPDATED
The move-in process is the start of your 2020-2021 academic year. The day is traditionally very busy and crowded. However, in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Office of Student Life as implemented several protocols to help keep you, your family, and our staff safe. Please read the following carefully as it provides you information and guidance to help make your move-in experience a smooth transition from home to campus.
Each resident is required to schedule an appointment for the time they plan to move-in their belongings on Sunday, August 9th, Monday, August 10th, Friday, August 14th, or Saturday, August 15th in a process we are calling Drop-off. Only three residents, and their family, will be allowed to drop-off at a time; and guests will have a 60-minute window to assist their resident to bring their belongings to campus and set up their room.
After your room assignment has populated in the ResLife Portal, you may use the links below to schedule your drop-in appointment.
To help accommodate residents that have already made plans with family to move-in their belongings the week of August 9th, the Office of Student Life will be allowing residents to use the four day previous planned for move-in as Drop-off Days. Any resident may schedule a drop-off appointment on any of the four available days previously designated as Move-In Days - Sunday, August 9th, Monday, August 10th, Friday, August 14th, and Saturday, August 15th. If a resident already has a Move-In appointment scheduled, they do not need to schedule a Drop-off appointment. On a Drop-off Day, the residence halls will be available to residents to bring their belongings to campus and set up their room.
However, residents will not begin to occupy their room until Friday, August 21st or Saturday, August 22nd.
Although residents will receive room keys and ID Cards at their drop-off appointment, access to the buildings will not be activated until they return to campus beginning Friday, August 21st. Residents may keep their move-in appointment as a drop-off appointment.
Drop-off Appointment Protocol
Anyone who has been to an area that is in a shelter in place order at the time of
their drop-off appointment, locations with widespread community spread of coronavirus,
or if they have been in personal contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 must self-quarantine at home. Do not travel to campus for any reason. The Office of Student Life will work with these students to coordinate a later date
to move-in after the recommended self-quarantine period has passed.
When you arrive to campus, go directly to the check-in tent located in the Owen Center parking lot and park your vehicle in a designated parking spot. You will leave your belongings in your car until you have checked-in, completed your virtual housing paperwork, and received your room key. You will need to approach the tent with your guests and your picture ID. Upon arrival to the check-in tent, you, and up to two guests, will be required to participate in, and pass, the college’s Post-Travel Screening questionnaire, before being granted access to the building.

After you are screened by Student Life staff, you will have your VanCard (ASU-Beebe ID Card) printed, you will be walked through signing your virtual housing paperwork and be issued your room key. After you have your key, you are free to report to your assigned residence hall building, and begin unloading your car, and move your belongings to your room! You will not be required to report to staff in the building once you have your keys. But Student Life staff will be present in the building to help you with find your room, maintenance issues, or general housing questions.
Due to COVID-19, staff nor volunteers will not be able to assist you move your belongings into to your room.

We will consider you for reassignment to any vacancies that may become available. It may be possible to do a mutual room change with another resident who would rather have your accommodations.
If you would like to request a different room after moving in, you may do that during Room Change Week, which is the second full week of classes. The first week is used to ensure that everyone moves in and that everyone has a chance to acclimate to college. Room changes will not be approved during the first week of classes.
