Step 1:  Set up access to your Earlham email account on TheHeart student portal.

To open your email account, click on “Zimbra” underneath the “Information Services” heading.  You can then use your username and password again to login.

Step 2:  Complete the 2016-17 New Student Housing Application.

Step 3:  Complete the Alcohol Assessment Survey.

The last step for your housing application is to complete the alcohol assessment survey - a twenty-minute educational survey which helps prepare students for on-campus, college living. New students are required to complete this survey before they receive their housing assignment and roommate information for the fall, so take a moment to complete this online assessment!
