The Office of Student Life uses the housing management software, ResLife Portal to manage resident interactions, room assignments,  communicate  with residents, plan activities, and  track maintenance work orders & packages.

The  ResLife Portal is not the same platform as the Vanguard Portal, where students access billing and academic records.

The 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 review your housing applications or your room assignment. Links to the Housing Selection and Resident Hub are available below.

At this time, ASU-Beebe will prioritize placing residents in single rooms, as requested. However, residents who request a single room may be placed in a private double room (a room designed to be a double, with two twin beds, but without a roommate). Pending room availability, and the increasing number of housing applications over the summer, residents who request, or are assigned, a private double room may be placed with a roommate. Residents are placed in single and private rooms based on the order of application.

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 housing application. Residents are placed in single and private rooms based on the order of application, as space is available. Residents wishing to be placed in a double room with a roommate, should select “Double Room” as their 1st Room Preference in the ResLife Portal, referenced above.

Residents that receive a private double room will be charged for a single room, see room and board chart below.

Room Type Rent per Semester Total Room & Board
Double Room $1,575 $3,000
Single Room $2,000 $3,625
Private Double Room $2,000 $3,625

While room changes are usually very limited due to the demand for housing, if you find that your assignment is really not the experience you were seeking, please contact Housing & Residence Life staff (housing@asub.edu). 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. Residents will be informed about the room change process in a floor meeting at the beginning of Room Change Week.
