Housing Selection
Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  
Is it true that sophomores are required to live on campus?

A.  
Yes.


Q.  
How do you determine who gets what lottery selection time?

A.  
Lottery selection times are computer-generated randomly for each group (Upper Class and Sophomores).


Q.  
Can I give my lottery time to someone else?

A.  
Lottery times are not transferrable for any reason.


Q.  
My friend is coming to KSC in the fall as a first year/transfer student and we want to live together - is that possible?

A.  
Only current on-campus students, and student returning from Study Away or Leave of Absence, are eligible to participate in the housing lottery. Spaces cannot be held for fall 2014 incoming students.


Q.  
What happens if there are no rooms available at my lottery selection time?

A.  
Be sure to place a housing deposit during the April 14-28 timeline. This will place you on the housing waitlist.


Q.  
If I'm on the waitlist, when will I find out if housing is available for fall 2014?

A.  
We will be contacting students in lottery time order beginning the last week in April, and continuing for several weeks, potentially into the summer months.

Sophomores who are current residential students are required to live on campus and will be offered housing from the waitlist as spaces become available.


Q.  
Where is gender inclusive housing offered?

A.  
For upperclassmen, gender inclusive housing is offered in Bushnell, Tisdale, and Pondside 2 apartments. Sophomore gender inclusive housing is offered in Butler Court and Pondside 1.


Q.  
Should I pay a housing deposit if I plan to study abroad during the 2014-2015 academic year?

A.  
Yes - any on-campus student who wants to live on campus for the fall 2014 or spring 2015 semester should pay a housing deposit.


Q.  
I'm currently studying abroad - do I need to place a housing deposit?

A.  
Not if you had a housing deposit on file prior to studying abroad for the spring 2014 semester - that deposit will be deferred to your return.


Q.  
Why must I pay my housing deposit via the online event?

A.  
When you pay the housing deposit at the online event link, you are consenting to the Terms and Conditions of the Housing Contract.


Q.  
Can I pay with cash or a check since I don't have a credit card?

A.  
No payments will be accepted via cash. You can pay with an e-check during the online deposit event.


Q.  
Can I pay via Quick Pay?

A.  
No payments will be accepted via Quick Pay.


Q.  
What happens if I don't pay the housing deposit?

A.  
Students who don't pay the housing deposit will forfeit their housing selection. Students who are on the housing waitlist will be removed from the list. Sophomores - who are required to live on campus - must pay the deposit.


Q.  
Will my deposit be refunded if I decide to live off campus?

A.  
If you choose a room during housing selection and place a housing deposit then the housing deposit will be forfeited if you decide to live off campus. Again, remember that sophomores are required to live on campus.


Q.  
Under what conditions will I get my deposit back?

A.  
If you are an upperclass student on the waitlist your deposit will be refunded only if you notify our office that you have found off campus housing before we contact you to offer a room.
