THE 2017-2018 ON–CAMPUS HOUSING REAPPLICATION PERIOD IS OVER

1.  In-Hall Housing Sign-Up

The In-Hall Housing Selection Sign-Up is Wednesday, March 1st from 12:00 - 7:00pm.  If you are planning on remaining in your same residence hall, you will be able to find out your exact sign-up time by entering the Housing Portal below.

Remember:

  • You must fill all beds in a suite to successfully assign your group.

  • You cannot be assigned a random roommate through the on-line process (you cannot partially fill a space).  Please use the Roommate's Classifieds to find and match yourself with prospective roommates for next year.

  • If you don't find a roommate and can't select a space during the on-line selection process, Housing will call you after March 8 and assist you with a placement.

2. Got Group?

As you complete the reapplication or at some later time (before you select a space) you must form and verify your Housing Group. Your Housing Group may be as simple as a group of 1 (going for a single room), or a group of 7 or 8 (trying for a large suite in Mills Hall). All group formations  and others actions take place within the Housing Reapplication.

 

3. Between Hall Housing Sign-Up on March 7 & 8

Remember:

  • You must fill all beds in a suite to successfully assign your group.

  • You cannot be assigned a random roommate through the on-line process (you cannot partially fill a space).  Please use the Roommate's Classifieds to find and match yourself with prospective roommates for next year.

  • If you don't find a roommate and can't select a space during the on-line selection process, Housing will call you after March 8 and assist you with a placement.

If you want to move to a different hall next year, you will select your space on March 7 or March 8.  

  • On March 7 rooms available will be suites, triples, built-up triples, and quads.  
  • On March 8 rooms available will be singles, doubles and any rooms left over from March 7.

Sign-Up times will be posted on March 2.

 

 FAQ

Answer:
February 1-22 – online housing reapplication is open. You must reapply in order to be eligible to partake in room selection.
March 1 – In-Hall room selection day. Groups/individuals select a room in their current hall on this day.
March 7 – Between-hall room selection day. Groups/individuals select a room in a different hall on this day. This night focuses on suites, quads, and triples.
March 8 – Between-hall room selection day – focuses on any leftover suites but now will include doubles and singles.
A: After re-application closes at 4:30pm on February 22, you can log back in to the application and view your sign-up time. Sign up times are issued based on current credits. The more credits you have, the earlier your sign up time. The group sign-up time is based on the group captain's sign-up time. If someone in your group has a better sign-up time, you can reassign the group leadership role to them. He/She will then takeover responsibilities for leading the group and selecting the space for the group.NOTE: If your group does not participate in the in-hall room selection on March 1, the group will be issued a new sign-up time for the between-hall process. Log back in after March 1 to see the new sign-up time.
A: Remember that you can pick a space anytime during your sign-up time, from whenever your sign-up time slot opens until whenever the sign-up period ends on that day. Or if you are unavailable during the the entry period, perhaps you could transfer the group leadership to another one of your group members who would be available during early in the sign-up period. Of course, the earlier in the sign-up period you are able to select a space, the more choices you will have, but don't panic, there are always enough spaces to choose from during the on-line sign-up.
A: You can come by our office (10 Academic Way, across from McConnel Hall, behind the bus stop), beginning on March 9 at 8:00am to complete a "Wish List" form. We work with students on the "wish lists" over the remainder of the semester and throughout the summer to get them into spaces they more desire.
A: Sign up times are directly related to the amount of credits you have earned as of the end of January. A student with more credits will have a better sign up time. Students with the same number of credits are then randomized for times. To optimize your group's sign-up time, please ensure the Group Captainship is assigned to the person with the "best" sign-up time.
A: Yes. You make a group and you’ll be a group of one.
A: It depends. The transfer student must be 100% accepted and committed through the Admissions office in order to be eligible to participate. If they're not sure, have the transfer student call Admissions. If the student being pulled in is active, they should have no trouble re-applying and joining the group. If they run into trouble, have them call Housing so we can help troubleshoot. These students can NOT participate as a "group of one" and select a single room. They can only be pulled into a group.
A: Students seeking other students to live with next year should check out Housing's Roommate Classifieds page, here, Find Roommate. This link is provided on the housing reapplication site.
A:  You cannot partially fill a room or get a random roommate during the online selection process.  Please use the Roommate's Classifieds page to match yourself with prospective roommates for next year.  If you are unable to find a roommate match and don't select a room during the regular on-line selection process in early March, Housing will call you after March 8 and assist you with a placement at that time from the remaining rooms.
A: The group captain can disband the group, or transfer captainship, by revisiting page 5 of the housing application. An individual can remove themselves from the group also by revisiting page 5 of the application. A new group can then be made to suit everybody's needs. The group captain must "verify" the group once it's set - that's an important step prior to being able to participate in room selection. NOTE: ANY time a change is made to the group, the captain must re-verify.
A: No deposit required in order to select a space. Instead, you'll be agreeing to a cancellation fee on your re-application. A cancellation fee will only be applied to your account if you select a space and later cancel.
A: Nope. If you select a room in-hall, you will no longer have a sign-up time for the between-hall process. If you make a mistake and select at in-hall, you'll have to call Housing and we can reset you/your group.
A: If you think for any reason that you may need to stay on-campus during the Thanksgiving, Winter or Spring Breaks next year, choose a room in a building that remains open: * Adams Tower West, Congreve, Fairchild, Hubbard, Devine, Hitchcock, and Randall remain open over Thanksgiving, winter and spring break (additional fees apply). * Scott Hall, Sawyer Hall, and McLaughlin Hall remain open during Thanksgiving and spring breaks only (additional fees apply).
