HOUSING SELECTION FAQ'S
Q: How do I know which housing selection event is for me?
A: Students who will have accumulated 52 or more credits as of the end of the Spring 2010 semester will be eligible for the junior/senior event on February 12. Students who will have accumulated 51 or fewer credits as of the end of the Spring 2010 semester will select on March 28.
Q: What will happen if there are no rooms available based on my lottery number?
A: If no housing is available based on your lottery number, you can choose to be placed on the waitlist. Students on the waitlist will be placed in housing throughout the spring semester and summer months on a space available basis.
If you are placed on the waitlist at the housing selection event, you MUST pay the $300 housing deposit to remain on the waitlist. The deposit will be refunded to you upon request if we are not able to place you or if you notify us to remove you from the waitlist prior to being offered housing.
Q: What should I do if I participate in the Study Away program or take a leave of absence for Spring 2010?
A: Students who are studying away or taking a leave of absence for the Spring 2010 semester should have completed the online housing release form before the end of the Fall 2009 semester. If you indicated that you intend to return to housing for the Fall 2010 semester, you will need a proxy to go through the housing selection process in your absence. If you don't have a proxy, please contact the Residential Life Office (email@example.com) and we will proxy for you. You are still responsible for all other eligibility requirements to secure housing, including registering for Fall 2010 classes.
NOTE: Students who are studying away or taking a leave for Spring 2010 do not have to place a housing deposit during the Spring 2010 deposit event.
Q: What should I do if I study away or take a leave of absence for Fall 2010?
A: If you intend to study away or take a leave for Fall 2010 and plan to return to housing for Spring 2011, you must place a deposit during the Spring 2010 timeline to secure housing for when you return. You do not have to select housing at the Spring selection events, you will be assigned housing prior to your return for Spring 2011.
