STEP 1: COMPLETE THE APPLICATION & CONTRACT

Park University’s housing application is available through eRezlife. Students may log in with their Park ID email and password. The application will provide the Residence Life staff with your contact information and roommate and living preferences. If you have already applied but would like to change any of your information (hall, roommate, etc.), email  reslife@park.edu.

Also in the eRezlife system, students will sign the Housing Contract. Be sure to review the housing contract thoroughly before submitting. All students will be held to the terms and conditions of the contract, once moving in.

Additionally, you may reference a PDF copy of the contract text here.
