- What is the housing lottery?
Each student who submits a housing deposit by the spring deadline is assigned a lottery number, which are generated randomly. This number signifies your number in line of succession to select your housing for the following year. The roommate with the lowest lottery number will be designated the group leader and will be able to select the room, apartment or suite at their assigned picking day and time.
- When does the housing selection process start?
The process begins in February, when a series of Housing Selection meetings take place. At that time information is given to all students about the selection process. The next step is to have your housing deposit submitted to the Student Accounts Office by the end of February. The process will then continue in late March/early April with General Housing Selection, in which each class will have an opportunity to select their housing for the next academic year over the course of a few days.
- What if I need to find someone to room with?
If you need help fining a roommate or a roommate group, please visit the Office of Residential Life for assistance. We can help you connect with other students looking for roommates.
- Do I have to put a housing deposit down?
Yes, a mandatory deposit is needed to reserve a space for you for housing selection. The deposit is $500.00 and is due to the Student Accounts Office by late February.
- What if I will be participating in study abroad next year?
If you are going to be a study abroad student in wither the Fall or Spring semester, contact the Study Abroad Office to obtain any housing forms you may need. Note: The Office of Residential Life will not hold any housing for students studying abroad in the Fall semester.
