General Room Selection
Please see Room Selection Dates You Should Know for current dates and deadlines. If you cannot attend lottery, please read the information regarding proxies.
The rising senior lottery will begin with lottery #1 and continue through the end of the class. A member of the rising senior class may choose any room available on campus. To pick a double or triple, or quad, a group must have the correct number of students to fill that room in order to make the selection. The student with the best lottery number will pick the room on behalf of the group and only his or her lottery number will be considered; additional residents for that room may be from any class.
Lottery numbers for the rising junior class will begin with lottery #2001. We will call #2001-2100 to select their rooms starting at 7:00 p.m.; #2101-the end of the class will be called around 7:30 p.m. If you plan to have a roommate or roommates, please be sure that they attend the lottery with you. Only the lottery number of the student making the selection will be considered.
If you are going abroad for the fall semester you should not choose a room or let your lottery number be used to choose a room. If you will be returning to campus for the winter semester, you will need to take part in Winter Semester Room Selection. You will receive more information about this process from the Housing & Residence Life Office in the fall. You may not have a friend keep an open space in a double room for the first semester in anticipation of your return to campus for winter semester.
If you are unsure of your plans for fall semester, please try to select a single room. If you choose a room with a roommate and subsequently decide to study abroad in the fall, then your roommate may have to move to another room (either a single or a double with another student) if your lottery number was used to select the room. If the room was selected with your roommate’s lottery number, then he or she will likely be assigned a new roommate.
Lottery numbers for the rising sophomore class will begin with lottery #4001. We will call #4001-4100 to select rooms at 7:00 p.m.; #4101-the end of the class will be called at approximately 7:30 p.m. Students will be able to select from the rooms that remain until rooms are no longer available. If you plan to have a roommate or roommates, please bring them in with you at the time of your selection. Only the lottery number of the student making the selection will be considered.
Since the rising sophomore class is the last class to choose rooms and we must hold a number of rooms for the incoming first-year class, there is a possibility that we will not have rooms available for every member of the rising sophomore class to select on this night. If you are unable to select a room during room draw, you must fill out a Summer Placement form at the time of room selection. Please see the FAQ section and Summer Placement section for more information on this issue.
