How to Apply

The best way to submit Housing Applications is through the FIDM Portal. Due to limited availability and to ensure your space, an early application is recommended.


1) If paying by credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover) - apply on the FIDM Portal.
2) If paying by cashiers check - go to the FIDM Portal, complete the application, and print it. Submit your printed application with full payment by U.S. Postal.
