The following list provides answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the housing application process for entering students.
Visit the Charger Checklist by visiting the Student page of myColby-Sawyer. Once you are on the Charger Checklist, you will see a link for “Housing Application.” Click this link to access the Residence online housing system, where you will complete and submit your housing application.
There will be a green check mark next to “Housing Application” on the Charger Checklist once you have completed your application. Note that staff members must process all applications, so please allow a few days for the red X to become a green check mark – it does not automatically change.
The first round of roommate and housing assignments will go out by mid-June via Colby-Sawyer email to all students who have completed a housing application. Housing assignments will be sent on a rolling basis to students who submit their applications after that time.
As noted on the Charger Checklist for Entering Students, the due date to make a specific roommate request is May 15. Note that submitting a roommate request is an optional and separate process from the housing application, and most students do not request a specific roommate. Students should complete their housing applications before requesting a roommate.
You can review and print the What to Bring Guide for what we think you will need when living on campus.
You should first confirm that you are using your full myColby-Sawyer email address (including the "@my.colby-sawyer.edu" part of it) as your username for the Residence system. You should also use the same password you use to log in to PowerCAMPUS Self-Service.
If you have confirmed both of those items and you still can't log in, confirm that your password still works by logging in to Moodle or PowerCAMPUS Self-Service.
If you cannot log in to Moodle or PowerCAMPUS Self-Service, you are using the wrong password or there is a problem with your account. Contact the Helpdesk for further assistance.
